Welcome to spark people and to the team. I hope that you find it helpful. It is a great site for motivation and encouragement. That is great that you can push through the pain. I find that I let mine limit me so I have to overcome that.

I just signed up again with Spark. I'll be 40 this year and I want to reach my fitness goals before! I was diagnosed with AS 2 years ago after about 12 years of back and hip pain that 3 doctors could not find a reason for. It took my second opthamologist and a third round of iritis to finally get a diagnosis! I don't think the AS had much to do with my weight gain. I've had times where my hip pain prevented me from exercising, but I can usually just push through the pain. I became self-employed 3 years and that's when the pounds started piling on. I work all day at my shop, come home and cook dinner and then hit the couch with the laptop to work until the late hours of the night. I have just recently started to try to take more time for myself and more time for eating better and exercising! :)
