Thanks so much for the welcome! It is nice to have people with like goals to be nearby. And to have someone who goes to the same Y is SUCH a gift. Thanks for the Silver Sneaker suggestion. I hadn't thought of going to those classes. I was hoping for an accountability partner but not sure how it works,

If I can dream it I can do it.

Welcome, Karen! Thanks for joining our team! Sorry I didn't see your post when you originally posted it. Like JJMPLSMN mentioned, sometimes we don't get in as often as we would like, but if you post something eventually we'll see it! I'm sure there are lots of members here that belong to the Y. Let us know whenever you have questions or are in need of a Spark!

HI Karen
We are really glad to have you here. Sometimes, people don't get here as often as we'd like, but they do get here. Welcome to the Spark Minneapolis/St Paul team.

I, too, am a member of the Southdale YMCA. I also have two knee replacements, and use the Nu-Step bike there religiously. I am also going to start arthritis swimming classes.

I HIGHLY recommend Mary's Silver Sneakers Chair Yoga class (and any other Silver Sneakers class). Mary was off for the summer, but will be starting back up her yoga class on September 2.

Let me know if you need any help with anything.

Spark on.

Spark on.

Hello everyone.
On Sunday I decided to officially join this team and I posted an introduction. The thing is no one has responded to me. I am not technically savvy but I think I did everything correctly as I can see my original post. So I am responding again.

Hello! My name is Karen. Harry is my cat. I live in South Minneapolis. I am not new to Spark People. I love all the resources this plan has to offer. What I need most is to have a group to be accountable to. I figure what better way than to ask for support from those right in my back yard! I have arthritis in my knees bone on bone and my shoulder. I have been many years of being active and have a difficult time letting go of that time when I had no pain and could do whatever I wanted to. I know what to do like yoga, swimming and the new step but it is getting the motivation and the discipline. I am a member of the YMCA. I like to go to the Southdale YMCA. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and learning from all of you. emoticon
