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!

emoticon That is good to know! I talked to the physical therpist at the Chiropractors yesterday and she said firm mattress is good for the stretches, etc. Floor is better, the firmer that better, but if can't be done, then that is better than nothing. So that is great about the foam roller on the bed...I will have to check out getting one. Now to see if I can actually do the rolling! emoticon Not as strong as you! Sigh! emoticon

"Your snow just vanished like that? Lucky you!!" Yup, the next day was 55 degrees and melted by lunchtime. Craziest weather ever.

Sorry I didn't test my link Linda, it does work now. I thought that tribute was pretty special too. Hope your day was awesome! CJ

Thanks for sharing your diving youth and later history. I know you've been through a lot. I greatly admire how you live your life despite the challenges.

I guess running could be a factor in my psoriasis, but it started on my hands 3 years ago and didn't start on my feet until more than a year later. Just had a definite diagnosis after biopsy recently, though.
