Thank you all. As much as I would really like to push myself, I know I should not. Not if I want to continue to exercise. I appreciate any motivation I can get. I might join the Y here, but just going to do what I can at home until then. Good luck Norma Jean.

Hi: I'm Norma Jean and I am new to SparkPeople and SparkGuy's 10 minute Fitness Club since Oct 5, 2013. I have osteoarthritis in both knees and this club will motivate me. I have been told that a minimum of by 20 minutes is required to make a difference. It makes sense that 10 minutes is better than 0 minutes. Thanks for the inspiration to end using my threadmill as` a clothes rack!!
I also enrolled in an aerobics arthritis class at my local YMCA. First class next week.
I finally received my pedometer yesterday afternoon. I was able to track a full day today. I see I have to do double the 'steps' in the future to meet my goal. I've learned years ago not to over do it. I'll get there with determination and dedication.

On my way to a better life. Fulfilling some goals I've failed in the past and pursuing new challenges to achieve my life's journey to wellness.
Wake up with DETERMINATION - Go to bed with SATISFACTION!!!

Starting again. I need motivation and inspiration. I know Sparkpeople is the place to get it. I lost 50+ lbs before. I started having knee pain. So, I stopped walking and running, went to the doctor, and had minor surgery. I have arthritis in my right knee and most likely in my left one also. I have almost no cartilage in my knee. So, I am starting over again, slowly.
