Journey To A Healthier Me - Update

It's been a while since I have posted an update relating to my Journey To A Healthier Me.

First, my weight loss journey. This has been a struggle for four weeks with the scale not moving. I will not give up but I certainly would appreciate you prayers and encouragement. I know this is just a temporary set back.

Now my other health issues.

My fibromyalgia, arthritis, and neuropathy have been quite painful lately. Now that I have been approved for SSI disability, my health insurance has changed; I have a new primary care doctor who is very understanding and willing to help me to become a Healthier Me. Thank you Lord for answered prayers. Pray as the two of us work together to better control my pain. It will take some time. Last night was the first night in several days that I have been able to sleep (still getting up every couple of hours to pee as usual). I appreciate those who have prayed for me through my prayer request on Facebook. Keep praying!

Pray that the doctor can get an approval for me to go to water therapy near us. This would require out of network approval, but this rehabilitation center is the ONLY one that provides water therapy in our whole county!

He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31 (NLT)

Praise the Lord for HIS strength!
