    I don't know whether you read this blog or not but it is a great blog. I haven't stopped by her spark page but it would probably be a good one to look into and someone to reach out to.

    You know what I am going to say - Listen to your body - not a well meaning friend. The only way I will exercise is if I do it on my terms. Otherwise I just give up all together. You don't want that. You may be running around the park some day - but you won't be doing anything if you push yourself too hard now. Walk when you enjoy it and as long as you enjoy it. You will even come to enjoy a little bit of pain because you will know that you are strong enough to take it and grow from it. Just take it slow at first and enjoy every step. Get that great attitude going and nothing can stop you.

    Congratulations on the three pound weight loss! That is Fantastic!!

    Continue to listen to your body. A mile and a half is a long way to walk if you are in pain. Cut back a little bit. Maybe break up the exercise into smaller segments to start. Three half mile walks are the same as one longer walk and will be easier on your joints. Keep moving, listen to your body and increase gradually and at a pace that is right for you.

    Have you talked to your Chiropractor about exercise that is appropriate for your back pain and ankle issues. There could be some modified exercises that he might recommend for starting out and then graduating to more intense exercises. I just don't want you to get burned out or in so much pain that you can't get any exercise at all. Maybe chair exercises to start with until you are stronger in the back? Please talk to him about this. I am concerned for your health, dear friend!
