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!

    Our street and the one connected to it are cul de sacs with about 30 homes total. They were build around 1970. No through traffic. There is traffic 7:00-8:30 am and 5:00-6:30 pm as people commute to/from work. The retirees are less likely to drive in rain, so our street is pretty deserted mid-day on a rainy day.

    Thanks, again, for reading and commenting on my blog! -Marsha
