CRAVIN, welcome to the team! Wow, I learned about three weeks ago that I have lipodema and have probably had it all of my life. I've lost a total of 68-70 pounds (it waffles), but it took me 11 years to get here. I also have hyperlymphedema, which I was also born with. This can be treated with massage and compression, so I can loose a centimeter or two in my legs. I don't have continual pain, but I do have extreme sensitivity to pain and I easily bruise. My upper arms are affected as well. I'm so relieved to know there is a reason for my large calves and thighs. I did lose inches in my thighs where I didn't lose anything in my calves. DON'T GIVE UP. Make this the beginning of a lifetime of moving that scale downward. It doesn't matter how long it takes, you are NEVER going to weigh this much again! You are never going to look back and wish you hadn't quit. This is it! God is a God of new beginnings, let Him give you this new one. If I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to ask me.

God bless, Kim

Oh, my husband and I are celebrating our 32nd Anniversary at the Outer Banks!

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

I am returning to Spark people after being away for more than 3 or 4 years. I am a Christian, married for 32 years with a great family and job. I have one grandson that is the light of my life. I have been a caregiver for my disabled husband for 17 years. Over the years, I have not managed the stress well which contributed to my weight gain. Nevertheless, three months ago I found out that I have a rare fat disorder called Lipedema that is also contributing to my weight gain. So, needless to say, I must get serious about losing the weight. Thankfully, I am still mobile and can (and do) exercise. I am trusting God for a miracle to overcome this condition. Lipedema has me in chronic pain all of the time but praise God- I just keep moving. I joined this team for spiritual encouragement as I continue to renew my mind and work on my physical goals too. I look forward to getting to know some of you- Sparked friends. God bless you all.
