Hi, my name is Cathy and I'm a pastor's wife, Christian music radio DJ for 34 years currently at KACS 90.5 FM, and Grandma Cathy to Skaila, Ethan, Emma, and Audrey and Gabriel.

Ken and I live in Chehalis, WA and are pastors at New Beginnings Church. We love to go camping, fishing, to Christian concerts, church convention, and my favorite sport is cooking! lol We LOVE our Seattle Seahawks!

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 2 years ago and last year I took a nose dive and was completely focused on pain. I'm rededicating my life to serving the Lord better and making Him the focus of all that I do. I can't do it any other way and be successful. I'm looking for new friends here for support and friendship. This is going to be a great year!

My Goals:
My goals for 2017 are to move a little more every day. It definitely makes the fibromyalgia settle down and my body feels so much better. I bought Hip Hop Abs from an infomercial on TV and it actually makes me feel like I'm getting a good workout without overdoing it. I regained the weight I lost last year so this year my goal is to lose that weight again, but my ultimate goal is to not let things so easily detour me from my goals. Last year when I lost the weight so many people in my inner circle told me I was too skinny over and over again so I thought I must be too skinny and let my healthy eating go by the wayside. Not this year devil! In my weakness Jesus is strong and I am more than a conqueror and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

My Program:
I am focused on eating healthy, exercising sensibly, and doing more for the glory of God!

Personal Information:
2017 has been a very challenging year. My original goal was to lose the weight I regained from last year. But I my health began deteriorating very rapidly. Not from any sort of dieting. Since May I have lost over 35 pounds and eat enormous amounts of food. I would barely get through a meal without feeling like I was starving again! I have been tested for cancer, heart disease, thyroid and parasites. The end of November they finally discovered I was suffering from malnutrition from an operation I had back in 1998. Thank you God for answers! Now I am slowly regaining my health one day at a time with increased nutrition, protein and exercise. My goal for 2018 is to keep the weight off I lost but most importantly get my health back. Glory to God!

    Thank you for your comment on my page! I just started writing and everything kind of came out. I know that when I was first sick, online communities and reading people's stories who were like mine were truly what got me through!! I'm definitely glad I could be "there" for you in that way! Let's keep taking care of our health...we know how precious it is! emoticon emoticon
