Typing with 1 Finger, No Friend Adds Please

Accurately tracking my food and fitness is what keeps me maintaining my weight loss. Thanks to Sparkpeople for getting me there!

Having RA since age 6.5, and years of hospital stays and surgeries (38 operations and counting) have kept me on a weight loss roller coaster my entire adult life. I have five artificial joints, but love to work out, the higher intensity the better. I have three forms of arthritis destroying my body, but fight to keep moving every body part they damage. That is all that stands between me and a wheelchair. My favorite fitness classes are Boxercise, Step & Zumba! My trusty elliptical keeps me moving on the days I can't get out. Winters are long and hard here and even more challenging to keep moving.
I can only type with one finger so request you do not add me as friend as its all I can do to keep up with the great friends I already have!! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

Thank you for the blog comment. Love to see you stop by. My grandfather had a couple of wolves he raised from pups. I've always been an animal lover and am keenly aware of the balance between all aspects of nature. I'm with you!

Thanks Linda for the blog comment! I just saw Slenderella61 comment belew...and oh, my the memory foam insoles I just bought sure have helped me lately! I even had newer New balance shoes! The insoles they had were ok for a little while...then my heel started hurting! Now my knees don't hurt as much too! Have a great day! Stay cool! emoticon

I do recommend the memory foam tie shoes for sore feet. My dermatologist recommended them. The brand I have is Sketchers and I got them at Kohls, but I'm sure they are available elsewhere as well as online -- if you are pretty certain of your size that might work. Best wishes. Thanks for all your support!
