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 (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 Good morning, Linda!
Hope you're not as sore today...
My Rheumy doc appointment went well. We discussed replacing a joint in my foot, but that isn't necessary for several years, we hope. For the most part, he is pleased with how we are managing my RA. I hurt more from all of his manipulations to my body than from the RA right now LOL!
The weather hasn't been the disaster predicted. Losing power wasn't pleasant, but we found out how well insulated the house is, and were grateful for smart phones and tablets!
I'm heading in to work.
I agree with watermellen... Alexander McCall Smith writes good books. I especially like the Ladies # 1 Detective Agency series.
Have a good weekend!!!

I tried copy and pasting your link, but alas it took me to the main youtube page. Could you send me a sparkmail and have the actual link to it for me. That may work better, so I can just click and go straight there. I have been finding some other knee strengthening videos on youtube also, which were good. emoticon
