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!

i just want to thank you so much for your comments about my "failure" blog I wrote. Thanks for being such a great friend. I'm trying hard, and starting back slow, so we'll see what happens this time! I really appreciate you more than you can know! Lori emoticon

Linda the laughing cow cream cheese is a little triangle with very few calories. I dip the crackers in it.

Thank you for the comment on my friend feed. I do not know where the pic was taken and it looks like autumn. But I think it is so pretty.
