Goddess bless you all for such a warm welcome. Thank you for welcoming me to your little home. I am so glad I found this place thru Mypoints. GREAT place.
I am signing up for water arobics next week and I will do my best to make it to all the meetings. My doctor told me it would be the best exercise for me and my condition.
I want to tell you the truth I have had a hard time dealing with fibro. I am getting better, at first I fought it tooth and nail. I know now that fighting fibro would be a battle I couldn't win, I know work with fibro and the other conditions that fall in line instead of fighting with them.

Sherry and from MN. I like water walking but don't have any access at home. I do well when we go south for the winter but don't find much around here without a gym membership. Best wishes to you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

some of those drugs are a royal pain in the scale! LOL
"Fibromites" walk a very fine line between doing enough to make a difference, and doing too much--basically, doing what we USED to do--and every day the line changes! LOL
That doesn't mean it's impossible though, just more of a challenge... and
You just have to start slowly, make any additions even more slowly, move steadily forward and take frequent breaks-- but never stop. You can back off a bit during flare-ups, but if you stop moving, it actually creates more pain for you.
You will find all sorts of helpful tips and good friends here... and if you click on the team name at the top of this page, it takes you to a list of discussion topics. There are two READING ROOMS there, with links to websites and articles that will help you better understand this odd little disease...
Have some fun, make some friends... you're not alone here!
Welcome! Be well...

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

I have found that over time what you eat and exercise makes a difference. If you start out slow you too will find things that work for you. I have learned information from others here that has become part of my life style. There is always someone or something that brings me back to this Spark Team Page. I hope you find the answers here too.
