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 remain on Sparkpeople to keep up with the great friends I have made!! They are my role models and supporters Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

    Yes, Oh well!
    I'm so sorry that my links don't work. I guess I will have to stop posting any if they are only a cause of frustration to dear friends like you.

    But once again you didn't miss much. I pretty much summed up the article in one sentence.

    Dang about my link not working!
    I copy and then paste the address in the address line when that happens. That always works.

    If you don't know how to copy and paste see if you can find someone to show you. It's an important skill to have. I could tell you some steps too if need be but it will be easier if someone can show you.

    If you have done that, well then I have no idea what to do.
