Six years ago I was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis. It is an autoimmune disorder that effects the connective tissues in the muscles. I have packed on the poundage from steroids and a complete sedentary lifestyle. I finally have the disease in remission and knew I had to get myself healthier so if I have a flare again I will live through it. I want to be able to just go shopping without being exhausted. This is due to the disease as well as all of the extra weight I have put on. My muscles are in a weakened state and being fat isn''t helping the situation. I began my lifestyle change in July. December is here and.life goes on. We are on vacation and my physical struggles continue. I am still trying to make smart choices and.just be able to move but this disease zaps me both physically and emotionally but I''m not giving up. No I''m not.

My Goals:
My goal is to be a normal weight. I don't know what that is to me personally, but according to the insurance chart it is much smaller then I will or want to be.

My Program:
Trying to eat a balanced meal. Eliminating all sweets!! drinking water and decaf coffee and occ. tea. Moving, moving, moving more then I used too. Increasing my protein intake as well.

I am married with 5 girls and 6 grandchildren. My husband and I attend church regularly and we like to travel and go hunting.

Other Information:
It is better to remain silent and thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

    Good Morning! I hope you have a good day. My week has been great with my healthy choices, but my neck pain has been bad. I'm thankful it hasn't caused me to eat all that junk food that is so readily available - My house if JUNK FREE!

    Enjoy a wonderful weekend.

    So good to hear your update on the roll call. I'm hoping you get good news on Beau's test results. I love my two big girls and know I would cry also if either one of them had to be tested for cancer.

    Hi Peggy!
    So wonderful that you are back! I know you've been through so much. All that packing & moving is stressful and tiring. Hopefully all of us will be an inspiration to you and help you to ease back into SP.
    I've missed you and was always wondering how you were doing. But I knew you would be back when you could.
    I've hit a plateu lately & haven't lost any lbs for a couple of months. But I haven' gained to that's not too bad.
    It's just hard fitting in exercising most of the time. Just to many family things going on.
    Hope to hear good things from you soon!
    Take Care of yourself.
