Thanks for looking at my forum and I hope that you will join in so we can get some support from each other.
I am 53 (almost 54) years old and have Osteo arthritis, Rheumatiod arthritis, and Reiters. I also have Raynuads, Fibromyalgia, and permanent nerve damage in both of my arms. These are a struggle in themselves, and I know that there are others that have the same, less (but still in pain) or a lot worse pain issues that they are dealing with daily. I want to help you, and I need your help to deal with these issues and lose the weight that I need to lose. I currently weigh 227.5 and know that I have been struggling with the weight even before I developed the arthritis. I have always been overweight, but have been able to lose the weight with exercise and diet, but now that I am in so much pain, it is so hard to get the exercise in to help with the weight loss. I have lost 25 lbs since Mar 2009, so it can be done and with the help of others, I know that we can reach our mark.
My hope for this group is to band together and be able to stay on track with the diet, while learning new ways of exercise that will help with the daily struggles that we have.
