emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Yes, you CAN do it. I remember a weight loss program I was in years ago and people in wheelchairs lost weight. If you can do a little exercise, more power to you!
I started with 5 minutes at a time due to a bad right hip and bad left knee. You can overcome or compensate!!!
Holler if I can help!!!

I am sorry about your diagnosis, it sounds like you've got a great attitude and I wish you all the best.

Hi and welcome back to SparkPeople! I'm very sorry about your CM diagnosis - it sounds like it has been life-altering, but I can tell by your quotes that you are going to stand tall and be strong and not give up. I admire you greatly for your attitude!

Under the Healthy Lifestyle tab, you'll find exercise videos for every fitness level - there are some very good ones that you can do while sitting down - you can even get an aerobic workout while sitting down. You might want to check out all the videos see which ones will work for you.

Again, welcome back, we're glad to have you on the team!

PS - I just looked at your Spark Page and saw that you are already a member of the chair exercise team, so you probably already know about the videos - I'm glad - good luck on reaching all your goals!!! emoticon

Hello All! I am excited to come back to SP after a long absence. In 2009 I was diagnosed with a medical condition called Cavernous Malformations (CM) that has altered the way I do things. CM are benign lesions in the brain and spinal cord that effects my in multiple ways: if I am awake I am light headed with dizzy spells on top of that, the left side of my body will go numb, my vision blurs, I have difficulty concentrating at times and my head looks like a bobble head. Needless to say this has changed what exercises that I can do which is not fun because my favorite thing is walking. I would like to get help with finding things that I can do while sitting down. I am looking forward to loosing weight, getting healthy and getting my energy back!!

I am strong though I stumble
I stand tall though I am dizzy
I am rare, but not unique!

Every day is a challenge
But I will never give up
Because I know the strength within me!
