Fibromyalgia, My Enemy

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Day three and all my "on top of the world" feelings have dissipated in the grim reality of radiating pain from head to foot. I can barely move and when I do it hurts so bad I groan with each step.

I will not let this get me down and I thank God that He gave me the wisdom to not have anything I shouldn't eat in our apartment. All of my hubby's treats are at work with him. It's a chilly overcast day and my old habits are urging me to order a pizza and curl up on the sofa and sink into caloric oblivion, but I REFUSE TO DO THAT. I will continue to eat the way I've been doing, which is healthy and good for me, and if I can't exercise, I will not beat myself up because there IS tomorrow. I must face the fact that there will be days like this and have a plan to avoid the need to give into emotional eating. My entire life has been an uphill battle in just about everything. So I'm a seasoned warrior and I will not give into the temptation, nor the cravings of the flesh to smoke, and chow down on comfort food.

1. I will pray and ask my Lord for help in strength and to help me follow through with all success the plan of lifestyle change to restore my health.
2. I will keep all my goals in full sight and focus solely on them.
3. . I will keep the image of camping, hiking and riding a roller coaster with my hubby forefront in my minds eye!
4. I will continue to come to SP daily for inspiration, motivation, and to encourage others to the best of my ability.
5. I will win this war!
6. I do have to wean myself off SP long enough to go to the spa for my exercise! LOL

Having an already addictive personality...don't we all?....I am already very addicted to this site and am forever grateful to Sparkguy Chris Downs for investing his own personal money to create it to help people at no expense to us. This site is so great that I would pay what little I have to stay here, who needs money when you're dead?

I'm off to do my food chart and visit my friends and some of my all who read my blog, I wish you abundant blessings in all of your goals for weight loss and health....WE CAN DO IT!!!

All things are possible with Christ Jesus which strengthens me. Phillippians 4:16

    You are not alone. I want to lose weight, get healthy, and stay healthy, but every time I start, the fibro kicks in. I am good for 3 days to 3 weeks, then I get sick. I am on my back for a few weeks and starting over again.

    I am determined to make it this time. I want to do it for me because I am the only person that I can count on. I am single and if I get sicker, I cannot work. I have to fight my way out of this and I am encouraged to know that others are trying to do the same.

    Hi! I'm new to SP and just finding my way around the sites. I also have Fibro and know what you are going through. I found that I had to completely give up all glucose products and just recently have begun substituting my wheat based products. SP is a real eye-opener for me. There is so much to discover every day. Today I am focusing on getting to know others and seeing if I can begin my support group. I'm managing OK with the nutrition and exercise but I really would like to develop some friends here that I can share the ups and downs of life with. I am Christian and I believe that we are given obstacles as part of our life lessons. My fibro will help me to become a stronger and better person as I learn to overcome and also offer my help to others. I would like to get to know you better and find out how you are doing with your exercises. I know the water was what I found to be the best for me but unfortunately I don't have access to a pool here where I live. I did find a exercise video geared to Seniors and have been doing that. Today my two little grandchildren (4 & 6) joined me for the cool down floor stretches. One of my long term goals is to be an influence to them that they will have a positive view of exercising. I think it would be really great if I could incorporate all of my family members in my daily exercises. Right now I am preparing all my food for myself and my daughter-in-law prepares for the rest of the family but eventually I also would like to influence them to eat a more healthier diet as well (also a future goal). Hope to hear back from you in the future.
