It has been over a year since I started SP. Little did I know it would change my life. I was not even sure when I signed up if I had the modivation to start but the small baby steps of the 3 goals I set as my FAST TRACK GOALS 1. post goals where I could see 2. exercise 10 minutes a day 3. eat 2 servings fruits or vegs. a day, have lead to miraculous changes in my life.

It has been over a year since I started SP. Little did I know it would change my life. I was not even sure when I signed up if I had the modivation to start but the small baby steps of the 3 goals I set as my FAST TRACK GOALS 1. post goals where I could see 2. exercise 10 minutes a day 3. eat 2 servings fruits or vegs. a day, have lead to miraculous changes in my life. When I started I walked with a walker in the house and if I went out I used a wheelchair or scooter. I did little to nothing around my house. I had gone 3 months not even leaving my house. I could not get up out of chairs without help. I had not driven in over 8 years. I could not go up steps at all. In fact little inclines were hard for me. When I walked I had to be so careful how I put my feet down as to not hurt myself. I really had very little strength or stamina. Today I exercise for 50 minutes some of it standing, I do not use a walker at all. I drove myself to stores and can walk in with a cane and shop. I can clean more around my house. I have more energy. I have a HOPE that each new day will be better. Yes there may be set backs at times but as long as we keep going we will advance. 6/1/2012

Thank you for your comments on my blog. I am not being ungrateful to the Spark Staff and I feel that the site serves a valuable purpose but that a lot of the people who it could really help are being frightened away by the problems caused by the changes. After all the fact is that the more members that belong to the site, the more money can be charged for advertising and the longer the site will stay free!!
You are so sweet and I just love you for your encouragement on my latest blog. To have one to understand RA, it really has to be someone else with RA. Sorry to say that though! It's not fun and I wouldn't wish it on anyone else. Thank you for understanding though and we'll keep pushing! Oh my, as I'm writing this, the sun just came out and if that isn't another reason to get outside and move, I don't know what is!
