WELCOME GRETCHEN!
I AM NEW TO THE TEAM, TOO. BUT THERE IS LOTS OF SUPPORT HERE AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I AM STILL TRYING TO GET STARTED. I JUST GOT A NEW DVD OF CHAIR EXERCISES AND AM WAITING TO GET MY NEW CHAIR ASSEMBLED, AS WE DID NOT HAVE ANY APPROPRIATE CHAIRS FOR EXERCISE. I HOPE TO "SEE YOU AROUND" AND SAY HI!
TAKE CARE AND TAKE IT SLOW AND BUILD UP!

Gretchen I want to encourage you and tell you this is a great team. I felt like you when I tried exercise I'd hurt myself and give up. I started with just 10 minutes moving around in my lift chair...looked more like I was wiggling than dancing. LOL I started by finding songs on youtube I liked and played them. I am amazed that by these small steps of exercising I have grown stronger and have done some "normal" things I had not been able to do in 11 years. I did over do it about a month in by trying to walk outside pushing my wheelchair and pulled a muscle. Thank goodness for all the support on sparkpeople that came about not giving up...2 steps forward one back...we are still making progress. I have found other exercise than walking with wheelchair and am getting stronger. You also can do it....baby steps are still steps. emoticon emoticon

I am Gretchen and I live in Central Oregon. I have degenerative joint disease . I can't do much at a time so mostly I haven't exercised in a long time. So this team sounded like a good fit for me. I tend to want to do too much and then I'm in pain and I can't do anything so I give up and get depressed. My husband is very supportive and very active. so I'm hoping with the help of the team I can get more mobility and less constant pain.

Thanks ,
Gretchen
