Hi Khelia!

I'm glad you found the team too. Welcome!!!! It sounds like everyone has given you great advice. I am a long time member of Spark People and this team...however, I've been gone for quite awhile and am just getting back into it again. I was diagnosed with AS about 30 years ago and I'm still in the game. Keep moving is the best advice ever!!!!

I hope stay really active here....because the support you get is just awesome!

Welcome to SP and to this group. I hope that we can help to provide the motivation you need. You have made a good move to start with Yoga and Tai Chi.

Welcome to both SP and the team. I have to say you sound very positive so the best advise I can offer you is to believe in yourself and keep moving. Good luck and welcome.

Hi there ..i m Khelia

Noob to sparkpeople, i joined yesterday.

AS newbie too, as ive been diagnosed only 5 months ago. Glad that this kid got finally a name and im no longer named as "Too sensitive" "Too lazy to move, no wonder she has backpain" "Shouldnt we take her to a psychiatrist?" or "pain med abuse, blahblah" - im sure many of you know these silly sayings...
Im glad its over, even if this diagnosis isnt pure joy ;-)

I gained lot of weight the last 10 years - i simply was very afraid of moving. Each time i tried to move, i felt in a deep sea of pain.

Now im on Celebrex (a Cox-2 inhibitor) and it works very well for the moment.
Now i want my life back !!!

Living in Germany i found a very nice RL-AS-Self help group. We meet once a week for exercise. Our Leader is a physiotherapist - surely she has a "manual for torturers" in her desk.
Recently i started with Tai-Chi and joined a Yoga group again. Twice a week i workout at the gym and every two weeks i offer myself some thermal treatments.

My goal: Get rid of this f... weight and find my former self in the mirror again.
Thanks for reading...
Khelia
