    Take it one step at a time and work on simple goals!
    I recently was diagnosed with Lupus of the skin but haven't shown in my blood yet. I have all the symptoms, which drive the dr's insane cuz I had 2 backsurgeries which complicates things. Recently the flares have been so bad in the past 2 weeks I'm paying my dues to the toilet King! LOL
    Simply put, as my father told me K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) some encouragement, I know, lol, but looking at it this way keeps your stress level down, and your less likely to develop other problems that could hinder you from obtaining the final goal.
    I at least try to do 10-15 min of some sort of excercise when I feel awful. Sometimes you just can't whip out the "pro" attitude when you geniunely feel like crap. Just promise yourself a short term goal and work from there and in no time you'll be feeling better that you won't realize your even doing it!
    Good luck!

    Hi Deni
    Welcome to the Sparks with Lupus team!

    Lupus and weight loss are difficult but it can be done! Just pace yourself, take things one day at a time. Some days will be good and some hard.

    Set small goals like losing 5 -10 lbs at a time....exercise/walk for 10 minutes....drinking 8 glasses of water everyday....try new recipes etc...

    This site is awesome, just explore and have fun with it. Lots of info and support so don't hesitate to message me or post in the team with questions.
