I am not really overweight, but I could be very easily. I also am disabled and have trouble with my legs. Because of that I use my arms to pull me around and such. The less I weigh, the easier it will be to drag myself around. Plus, I really can't afford a whole new wardrobe if my clothes don't fit anymore. I try and exercise everyday, for two reasos, of course I would like to lose weight, and I have to keep what muscles I do have from atrophy. It just doesn't seem fair that some people can eat anything they want and don't HAVE to exercise like I do. I couldn't go for a walk for more than a few feet.
Sometimes I feel like my body has betrayed me, but most of the time I just feel like that's the way my life is.


Member Since: 5/4/2010

Fitness Minutes: 15,569

My Goals:
I guess my primary goal is to not get worse physically. I have given up on getting better, but I don't want to quickly get worse. I am sure I will get worse, but I try to slow it down. I also would like to lose t
5 or 10 pounds.


My Program:
I try and exercise everyday, if only for a little while. Every movement counts. The only time I really don't exercise, is if I have heavy cleaning to do. I am always tired, and can't do too much in one day.



Personal Information:
I live outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. In the USA. I am 56 years old and live alone. I am divorced with no children. I had an original diagnosis of cerebellur degeneration and when I went for a second opinion they said no. I have been dealing with pysical problems since I was in Jr. High. It gets worse all of the time, and now I use a walker most of the time. Sometimes a wheelchair or crutches, but always something.


Other Information:
I read a lot, and like to watch movies. I am really interested in historical movies, mostly the history of the US, around the civil war, or war for independance. I also nap almost every day and that is the highlight of my day.

    Just take one day at a time. You will be able to do more with summer just around the corner. Im in my apartment 24/7. Live along and no pets. I don't see anyone for days on end. Very lonely life. I also have problems with my legs. Im in a walker when I do go out. Things will get better in time. God Bless You and Have a Wonderful Week.

    I am not feeling that well today but your story inspired me. I had planned on just lying down and not bothering to do any exercise today but because of your story, I changed my mind.

    Even if I do just a bit of strength training, I will do it today. Even if I walk just a bit, I will walk today. Thank you for sharing your tenacity and courage.
