Hello it is nice to meet you. You had to go through a lot already and I bet it is not easy day to day! There are so many people here with injuries, limited mobility and physical challenges. ( I have a busted knee and have to modify almost everything I do). Best thing I found is to make a Spark Page so people can come visit you and then join a few teams that you might enjoy. Everyone here is amazingly supportive of each other and there is help literally a click away. We are all in this together. You can do this!!!! Let me know how I can help!

Hello all! I joined a little bit ago, but never had the opportunity to introduce myself. I have about 10 pounds to loose, but am dealing with a few obstacles I'm hoping to get some help getting around. I was in a pretty bad car accident almost a year ago, where I injured my lower back, my neck, right shoulder and wrist. Also, my right ankle has been sprained several times, and it is sometimes hard to walk. Before all this happened, I was going to the gym 3-5 times a day, doing HIIT and weights, watching every calorie I consumed, and was generally feeling good about myself. After the accident, I was told that swimming was about all I could do, though my neck and shoulder injuries prevented even that. Since then, I've been battling about 10-15 pounds, and depression. On top of all that, I go to school full time, and my husband is stationed about 6 hours away, so I'm also a full time+ mommy to a 3 year old. Needless to say, I have very little time for working out, or cooking healthy meals at home. I know once I start loosing weight and working out again, I'll feel better and be in less pain, it is just difficult to get started and to know when the pain is good, and I should keep going, and when it is bad, and I'm causing more damage than good. Anyway, thanks for reading!
