Welcome Sonya!

I know you can do this! But you need to want to do it too! One thing I have found that is being active with a team helps give you that support you need when things are getting rough. It's true that moving helps ease the discomfort or OA. If I just sit and not exercise it's harder the next time and it does make you want to give up. Don't listen to that little vioce. Get up and move! Go to that swimming class that a little walk. Maybe it's just the lenght of the drive way or to your mail box. But get up and move. I know there is some days that it hard but you will thank yourself after you do. I too have OA in both knees, back, neck and hands/ wrist. Sometimes getting up out of bed is rough but after I am up I do feel better because I can concentrate on something else. Plus being active on Saprk is a big factor. Get on a team you feel comfortable with and "chat" with the other members. You will find tht when you are down there is someone there to cheer you up and get you going again.

You can do it Sonya! I hope you get back to your swimming program. When I don't want to do a work out, I always remind myself that I have NEVER regretted a workout. I've certainly regretted not doing a work out, but I have always felt better mentally, if not physically, after getting out there.

Hi My Name is Sonya:

Need some encouragement. I've been with Sparkpeople for over 2 years. I've tried then stopped but I have gotten back on program with a health concern to defeat. I am 42 with severe OA. Of course I am over weight by 30 pounds. This makes it very difficult to stay active with any type of exercise. I did however, start a swimming exercise class but have not been in awhile. I just really need to stick with a program because I know I can do it. The pain and stiffness in the knees, spine, and hips can be very painful. I am taking herbal supplements and they do work.

I can use all the encouragement to stick with the program.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version
