Hi Traci, I'm Cathy and I'm fairly new to the team too. Welcome! I'm the outsider...meaning I live in California! This team was so inpirational, I just had to join...and they were nice enough to let me. You Arkansonians (is that a word?) are an awesome group of people!!

Swimming is a great way to exercise & not stress the joints - you weigh nothing in the water! If you can join a gym with a pool, some have water aerobics classes that could really help you out. A friend of mine & I use to swim every morning before work while she was pregnant with her last child, but since then we haven't been able to get back into it - mostly my fault... I'd love to do it again, but can't seem to wake up early anymore... I'd have to wake up at 4:45 for it to work... uuuugg that's early!

Your Dr. is right, start out slowly and build up. As you're building up, you'll be losing weight to help you do more & more. I'm extremely proud of myself for the 12 miles we did today on the bikes!

I actually live between Farmington and Prairie Grove. Right now I'm just walking, but have decided to add some resistance bands for strength. I can't lift weights because of the Fibromyalgia, but I think the bands will be okay. I don't go to a gym currently, but my husband has talked about us joining one. My doctor has suggested exercising for a longer period of time, at a slower pace until I've lost some weight and my joints have less stress on them. I'll figure it all out some how. Slow and steady is the way to go for me.

You have begun a journey into the unknown. Although you may think you have been abandoned, remember you're never alone. God is with you every step of the way.

There she is! See I knew you could do it! lol

So which town do you live in? I only ask incase someone wants to go exercise you might want to join them. Do you go to a gym? What is your favorite type of exercise?

My name is Traci and I'm 40 years old. I am married with three children. I have twins, Hunter and Kacey, who are seventeen and seniors in high school. My daughter Amber was killed in a drunk driving crash in 2005 when she was nineteen. We all miss her so much! I have put on lots of weight from depression and the side affects of medications used to treat my Fibromyalgia. I hope to lose weight, gain confidence and make friends. I look forward to meeting lots of fun, interesting people.
