Welcome!
I understand the frustration of living outside of your comfort zone and trying to exercise more only to end up with pain.
I have found that when my back hurts, I find exercises to strengthen the weak muscles. I stopped running and cut down to 3 five mile walks a week and instead, I lift weights or aerobic exercises etc.
I used to live in the country and while I love where I live now, the advantage to country life is being able to slow down and get to know people. It takes more effort, for sure! But when you get to know them, they are more likely to really be your friend.
I am glad you are with us on our team!

Thank you for reading and responding to my post. I looked up plantar fascitis when some other people suggested that's what it might be. The pain is in my toes and right behind them when I move my toes, I think that's the wrong part of the foot for plantar fascitis. Arthritis affects joints and toes have joints. I'm trying hard not to worry too much until I see the doctor though.

Welcome back! Hang around!

Make sure that pain in your foot isn't plantar fascitis - didnt realize how easy that is to develop!
Use arch supports and look up the therapy exercises for it, it might help!

I am a city girl myself, can't even imagine living among only 5,000! What a transition!

Good luck on your journey, looking forward to seeing around the place!

Here Comes the Sun!

Hi everyone. This will be my third time returning to Sparkpeople since I discovered it in 2008. I guess there's a reason I keep coming back, maybe there's still a little hope of success left in me. I would like to lose at least 60 pounds and it really seems impossible sometimes. I think Iím mostly tired, tired of counting calories, of watching EVERYTHING I eat, of trying to figure out an exercise program I can stick to and mainly Iím tired of hating my reflection Ė especially when Iím not dressed! I'm 60 years old, a retired high school biology teacher. I retired in 2008 because I was driving about 140 miles a day to and from work and really wanted to spend more time with my husband Rod. Rod is 7 years older than I am and is a type 1 diabetic. I was widowed at age 47 and realize that time is the one thing you never can replace so I was glad we could afford for me to retire at age 55. The biggest challenge I have is boredom. I live in a pretty small town (around 5,000) and the nearest city is 90 miles away. Before my second marriage in 2002 I always lived in big cities so this was really a change for me. I don't have any friends here, I think it would be easier if I had someone to walk with or talk about "women" things (like weight loss) that I don't feel comfortable talking with my husband about. I have arthritis in my knees and I think now it's also in my left foot so exercise is a challenge, mainly I walk - a LOT but now my foot hurts so I'm not sure what's going to happen with my exercise plan. I came back to Sparkpeople this time in the hopes of finding encouragement and maybe finding some other women I could have an email friendship with. Check out my SparkPage, there's lots more info there (you can tell I'm bored). I probably wrote a lot more than I should have for an introduction but I also like to talk - even if it's in writing emoticon
