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 (35 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 against every body part they damage ...

Having RA since age 6.5, and years of hospital stays and surgeries (35 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 against every body part they damage to keep moving. 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 two fingers 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!

Thanks for your support on my latest blog! I really appreciate it and yes, I have been on Humira injections for quite sometime and had to quit it because of two different infections, so that was a bummer because I really liked how it was working. That was one of the best! My fist biologic was Enbrel that never kicked in. emoticon This Orencia has been since February and it hasn't been as good as Humira and seems to be fading. I can email my Rheumy anytime, so will when I need to. Thanks again for you care. It really feels good when we can talk with those that know exactly what's going on. Have a great weekend! Hugs, Karen

Thanks for your comments on my "back to goal weight" blog this morning. Yep, I really do think I can do it...yep. Yep, I'll have to work at it, but I can do it b/c if there's one thing I'm good at, it's working hard. I celebrated today my helping DH stack wood for 90 mins. Afterward, I had plenty left in the tank to make us both healthy suppers. Onward we go and thanks so much for the cheering!!

So sorry to hear of the tragedy - probably terroristic act - in your beloved country. Stay safe!

You are very well liked and respected here Linda, and I'm willing to bet at your bridge club too.

Your "station" in life and "formal education" and "former occupation" are all irrelevant -- it's WHO you are. Resilient, tough, determined, courageous. Yeah!!!
