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!

Were you getting wax cleaned out of your ears? I get wax every year and need to have my ears cleaned.

Thanks for you support and confidence that I have ended this yo-yo cycle and that I really can maintain this weight loss. I was diplomatic with my boss and took in my BMI to show him I was normal. He has left me alone, since.

Have a good day, Linda.

So sorry to hear about your Moms garden. That must be tough to put all that work into something and then have nature come along and its all gone. emoticon I love to look at collectibles, just depends on what they are. Wish your yard sale would have gone better for you but sounds like you had some fun anyways. ttyl xo emoticon
