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!

Black bean spaghetti with curry sauce sounds fantastic. What a fun combination. Yes, it is good to like the photo on my driver's license and to be honest about it.
You are a great friend and I love your enthusiastic support.

Linda, Thanks for commenting on my blog concerning buying a car for our son. We have decided to rent a Fit from Hertz for 3 days to see how he really likes it. If Frank does like it we can buy it from Hertz for $14,300 and it is a 2013. Cars are very expensive here in CA. So many taxes and stuff here. And gas prices keep going up and up. Just hope Frank doesn't lose his job!

Oh, thank you, Sweet Linda! I've sure learned a hard lesson. I'd hate having the 'sawbones' start hacking at my feet, etc.

Love you all for your support, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

AHHHH! Thank you! We actually walked that area last night, and are making plans to go back often. Funny I didn't recognize the bits you depicted... I'll look closer next time, LOL! We haven't walked in that area in about five years so my eyes were everywhere at once. It's really grown up. Last night we talked to some men who had been fishing for about an hour... they had a big garbage bag with 5 fish each over 2 feet long!!! Now my daughter wants to go fishing, LOL!

See you on the trails (I hope... next time I'll say hello)!
Ramona
