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 remain on Sparkpeople to keep up with the great friends I have made!! They are my role models and supporters Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

    Thank you for taking the time to read my blog especially since you have been feeling so bad yourself for some time. I pray your problems will be resolved soon.

    Generally my physio can sort me out without too much pain, he's a great guy and gentle (normally). This time, obviously, more was needed and he found all those trigger points around my shoulder. I'm glad he did as the result was worth it. I actually got a better nights sleep last night, the best one for months, clocking up a great 7 hours. Almost unheard of recently but much needed. Hope you manage to get a good nights sleep soon too. emoticon
