emoticon emoticon emoticon Hi Janis. I agree that it is very important to keep the body moving. We have to prevent stiffness by getting up off our chairs every so often to stretch and move. Hope you find something that works for you. Exercising with a seniors group is something that I would like to try eventually when I find some time.

emoticon I agree it's hard when your body hurts. For now I'm mostly doing walking in place or gentle stretches. I want to get back to the health club so I can walk in the heated pool. That makes it easier on the joints. I have done Tai Chi in the past & it helps. I have several yoga tapes & would like to try them. Yoga & Tai Chi are recommended by the arthritis association. Spark 's does have a chair exercise group that may be of interest to you. Whatever you decided to do it's important to move daily. It helps keep your joints working & keep your bones strong as we get older, something I am just learning at 61. Start slow try something each day and keep pushing forward. emoticon

Hi, i'm new to this team. Very discouraged because hard to lose weight when i ache so much; hard to move. Mostly feel sorry for myself and sit in chair and watch TV. Need advice. Use aspirin and motrim to get through the day--which helps very much. Now just started to use icy hot cream for my feet. Cut out diet sodas because of the sodium--which i never even thought was in soda. This has been a big help. Saw a video on-line about yoga being a big help. Does anyone do yoga and has it helped. Any advice would be more than welcomed. Janis (i am 66 years old.)
