Well, I've already got joint pain plus orthopedic problems; in my case--to a one, all overuse injuries. Due to keeping my body moving. Some happened about 16 years ago. I'd been quite obese at the time, but also had fallen hard for step aerobics and used inadequate footwear.

I will be getting my new orthotics (for the orthopedic problems) soon.

As for the joint problems, the pain comes and goes ..

But, the HAES approach says that you work within your limitations, and the exercise be enjoyable movement ... why not?

And HAES does not say to exacerbate any problems ..

It's Heath at Every Size ... not Health at Encumbered Size ...

could be the right spot . I can relate to to your statements . I do not want to be hurting in all the joints of my body either . I turned around one day and i was the old lady looking at myself . I had become old . with body aches and pain all over .

Hi.

I love the haes concept. I have had a difficult 6mos and have gone past my comfort level. I have a great haes doc and she suggested just to drop a few dress sizes and that was what I had in mind. I am a 26-28 and would like to get to a 14-16 which is where i feel comfortable. I am indeed a very healthy fat person but as i am getting older I think the current extra weight will impact my joints, as they have my parents. So just want to get to where I'm comfortable. Do you have any group challenges or anything here? Just getting the lay of the land. :) Contralto



I think this is the right place for me. What do you think?

There is no "I will try", there is only "I will" with God's help.
