I am back to this team and SP after a very long break. My Arthritis / Back / Hip pain have bothered me since I was 11 yo. I'm lucky if I can walk 5 to 10 minutes without being stopped by pain. I have had 5 back operations and have had my cervical and Lombard spine fused. My major problem losing weight is getting active. I go to a physical therapist 2 to 3 times a week, and try to walk (5 to 10 minutes 3times a day)on the off days . Pain always seems to interrupt my attempt to be consistent about this process.
Currently I am working with a Pain management Doctor. His plan for me is to reduce the pain of exercising with medications, to enable me to lose weight thus reducing the pressure / pain on my hips, back and knees: therefore making it easier to be active and get my weight down to the point where I can reduce the amount of medication I need to be relatively pain free.
All this sounds great to me but I am not naive enough to think that it's going to be easy. I remember how supportive the folks on Spark were the last time I tried to lose weight. I have hope that with the support of my doctor, family, and Spark People this time I can stay on track.

Hi, my name is Carrie. I have myasthenia gravis. It's a rare autoimmune neuromuscular disease. I was diagnosised a few months ago. I have a hard time getting up and down, and lots of fatigue. I filed for disability last week. It's been a hard time for me. I hope to lose about 50 lbs.

Hi all, my name is Teresa and I am from Illinois. I am married with 3 kids and we also raised our nephew from 12 on up. We also have one grandson. I have been on this site for a few weeks now. I am getting to the point of being totally overwhelmed when it comes to exercise. I am confined to a wheelchair and only have use of my top part of my body. Therefore, any exercising I do will be with only the top part of my body. I am having trouble finding a workout for myself. I have gotten numerous ideas from people. However, I dont even know how much I should work out. How I should work out or anything. Can someone please help me. Any help would be very much appreciated.

hi everyone! my name is eileen, friends call me eie (pronounced eye) so please feel free to call me eie, too.
i have left side paralysis as a result of having had three strokes since i was 14 years old(long story) but i still try to stay active dispite my limitations. but you know, some days are good days, some not so good.
emoticon i lost 6.5 pounds last month and that is ok with me. my goal is to lose 1 pound a week and not to drop the weight so quickly. i have yo-yoed before and now i think my focus should be on getting a healthier lifestyle not just losing weight and changing the number on the scale.
i hope to make a lot of new friends here, too.

hello I'm new to here. I must admit I have had more health issues since I turned 30 (last year) than I have in a long time. Hoping to lose some weight so I don't get the other health issues that run in my family.

All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

There are chair exercises? On SP?
Wow!
Where do I find them?

That sound amazing!

I tend not to use a chair indoors, though I do have a manual for if I'm bad, and for my boyfriend to put inthe car if we're going out. I have an electric for outdoors though that I use all the time, but I have a flat tyre at the moment and I'm trying to save up to get it fixed.

Chair exercises sounds great, sounds like the kind of thing I could do without worrying about too much weight bearing type pain.

Thanks!

Nicola

Hiya!

New here, starting SP again after a few years of not doing it. My name is Nicola, I live in England, and I'm a wheelchair user. I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (III), Bipolar Disorder (II), Fibromyalgia, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Dyspraxia, Asthma, Thrombocytosis, Psoriasis and I just found out I probably have Endometriosis as well.

My body's quite a wreck!

But I'm starting this again and I'm determined to lose some weight and sort myself out!

Tee here. I found this site on Skinny1Days page and am glad I did. I fell off a ladder 14 years ago and have been struggling with physical problems and losing weight.

I had my sixth surgery last March. Felt good enough to walk and exercise more for a year before my knee started aching to the point where I could not stand. Last week, I found out the knee is shot and needs replacing.

I got thru go and bad physical periods which has doctor's questioning if I have MS.

Losing weight is a struggle for me due to a metabolistic problem. The most I ever lost is 1 pound in a month.

I was in a wheelchair when I started Sparks....... went to a walker..... and now use a cane....... They told me I would never walk again....... So it can be done...... With lots of support..... and determination....... I hope to see you jumping right in....... and getting to know everyone......... The support is great...... Good luck with all your goals.......

Hi Bobbi glad to meet you but sorry you are feeling so pain. Do you use a wheelchair they can be helpful in pain reduction but also safety in preventing falls.

Hi Ronnie ah those golden years just filled with ruts in the roads to make our lives exciting every day. I am so glad you came by to say Hi and sure do hope to see you often as well as your wife, Bobbi.

What is one thing you do each day that brings a smile to your face? I watch the birds and the squirrels outside. They are every where and always up to mischief. Now the Flickers (a type of woodpecker) is busy eating the apples on the tree. That is always an indicator that the apples are ripe but also a warning that if you do not get them first the birds sure will. Can you share a story as well? Glad you are here. stormfan

Hi Shandy welcome to this terrific team that gives encouragement so freely. I hear you when you say that exercise is difficult for you so perhap you may want to go to the chair exercise group. There is a link there for multiple exercises including yoga and tai chi and aerobics. You can work your way up into what ever level you feel comfortable with. I have been doing them for about three weeks and already feel stronger.

Keep talking with us so we can just push each other along. Yolanda

Hi. I'm shandy. I've been on SP for a couple of years but have had many challenges and given up over and over again. so I haven't been active on here for many months. and now I'm back and literally fighting for my life. One of my many disabilities is a lung disease called Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (you can go to www.thelamfoundation.org if you want to find out more about it) it's a rare lung disease and it particularly hits women in their 20's, 30's and early 40's. It causes cysts on the lungs and apparently when those cysts pop it can lead to a lung collapse, which I just had my first 2 of last month. Now the dr's tell me I need a lung transplant and they won't give me one because I'm overweight, so I need to lose 100 lbs. Not an easy task when I don't have the extra issues to deal with, but especially not easy now when I can't walk 5 feet without my oxygen levels dropping severely. and when my medications cause weight gain. But I have to do this. On top of that I have Diabetes and a second lung disease called Alpha 1 anti trypsin deficiency. and of course being 300 lbs makes excercise hard enough as it is.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight

Hello LINDA....... It's great to see you already introducing yourself..... A lot of us here..... were fine and healthy..... and ended up disabled.... I'm one of them.... I know how hard it is to except that we can only do so much now..... But Sparks is a great place to be...... There are exercises you can check out under "my fitness".... I started doing a little cardio..... and walking...... adding more steps each day..... So you have taken your first step to losing some weight.... and living a healthier life style..

I have osteoporosis..... and at one time..... they told me I wouldn't walk again..... but here I am..... not walking that far..... but on my feet..... I wish you all the luck in meeting your goals......

Hello Everyone. My name is Linda. I am 58 yo and live in Tennessee. I have been on disability for 5 years. I have several health issues among them fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and obesity. I need to lose over 100 lbs. I just joined SparkPeople when I found out about it from an online friend. I really need information on exercises that I can do since I am not able to get down on the floor nor can I stand for more than a few seconds at a time. I walk with forearm crutches but can only walk a few yards at a time. It is all I can do to get out the front door and to the van when I need to go anywhere. I use to be a very active person and not being able to do what I want to do is very depressing. I have had a lot of challenges over the last several years and feel that it is finally time that I take charge of my life and get healthier. So, any help you can give me in finding exercises that I can do would be greatly appreciated. I am looking forward to making some new friends. emoticon

Thank you very much. I really appreciate your reply. It means a lot to me. I try and challenge myself. But, sometimes I am just crawling metaphorically speaking, yet there are times when I am a bit more energetic. It is a matter of convincing myself that a little at a time is good enough, one day at a time. As long as I persevere...

Yours, Karen

All the best, and I will see you around, and I will post when I need help!!!



Thank you for your supportive comments.

Hi K_WREN....... it's great to see you introducing yourself....... yes this team is great for support... and we all have one kind or more disability's..... and so one is no different from the other..... we're all in the same boat..... so to speak..... It is hard to stay motivated when your always in pain...... but most of us have learnt to live with it........

Getting use to dealing with disability's....... is hard..... I know when I first was told..... I would never walk again....... I told myself....."no way".... and Sparks has helped me get back on my feet.... but before my disability...... I was out and doing things daily..... also working.... and I miss that the most...

At anytime you do feel overwhelmed....... be sure and post...... and the support will be here for you...... I'm looking forward to getting to know you better........ Good luck with all your goals...... and living a healthier life style...

I joined the group several weeks ago but I have a few teams and I have not really jumped in yet. I have several disabilities and getting used to dealing with them seems very frustrating at times. I have to consider physical and psychological factors at all times. Even in the best of circumstances nowadays. I am persevering with exercise, usually everyday yet sometimes I have a lot of pain. And I am trying to stay motivated in my life. Though there are moments where I just feel overwhelmed. I thought this team would be good for me with support and it seems like a really positive place. I like the threads that are going and I hope that I will get to know folks and feel right at home after some time. Good to meet you all.

Hi All,

Like I said, I'm jusgt beginning to find what all Spark has to offer. So I wasn't to sure about whether to make my page public or private. I'll probably change that.

One thing's for sure, I don't understand about "challenges". Can someone please explain this to me?

Hi, I'm Mariva and I fight to stay active by using my rollator. At work people have to move quickly to stay out of my way because I use it to help me carry things. I also move quickly from one end of the restaurant to the other. They even schedule me with one driver to see if I can handle it. So far, I have. I tell others, I may have MS but it doesn't have me. I am new to Sparks but so far I like what I have seen. emoticon

Hi SHANNA...... I'm happy to see you posting already..... I can certainly relate to yo yo dieting.... and not being able to do certain exercises..... I started off here in a wheelchair... and now I slow walk with a cane...... So it can be done..... there are also some good video's on Sparks to help you with doing cardio.... and lots things and chair exercises we can do... Swimming is one of the best exercises I think there is..... For me anyways..... Still need to find a pool close enough....

Sparks is about learning to live a healthier life style.... and since being here....... I have learnt a lot about my eating..... I also love to cook.... and there are many good cooking teams here also..

I wish you all the luck..... and I hope we will keep seeing you on the team threads.....having some fun along the way....

Hey all!

Thanks for the warm welcome from y'all who commented on my page :)

My name is Shanna, and I'm born and bred in the Denver area, although did move to Philly for grad school. Back in Denver now.

I've done the yo-yo dieting for years...I lost 20 pounds on WW back in 2005, and gained it all back plus some. Then I lost some in 2007 due to a medication I was on, but once I was taken off it, again, it all came back.

I'm disabled, but I do love to cook (as does my partner who is also trying to lose weight), so I'm hoping to go the nutrition route on this one. I always have issues with the "fitness" part of these things (weightwatchers too)...I've had three knee surgeries, and am in line for 4 more. Add patellar-femoral and osteo arthristis, and most cardio exercise is off the table. I can use a recumbent bike, but don't have access to one, so it looks like it'll be slow walking (occasionally with a cane) and maybe some pool exercises for me.

Any tips, suggestions, etc, would be appreciated! I'm so glad that there is a group like this in existence!

Hi to everyone. I joined yesterday and decided to find myself a Sparkteam that would fit my lifestyle. Had a back accident 15 years ago with surgery. Been dealing with chronic pain ever since. When there was a talk of another surgery, I put my foot down and flattely said no. The neurosurgeon refered me to a new type of physiotherapy based on the book "Explain pain" from a group of orthopaedic professionnals in Australia. After 8 months I'm starting to feel different in my back. It's a slow process (I have another 18 months to get to my physical goals). It's all about my brain, my central nervous system and my spinal cord. At the moment, I have my dreams comeback to me and with my gain of power over my pain, I can also gain power over other stuff, so I joined SP. It's one day at a time but I have no idea of where, when or how yet. I'll see as each day pass. So there you are.

Thanks for having this team. It is always weird to try to explain to healthy body people how chronic pain just is a real drag 24/7. Hopefully my wisdom will be appreciated and I'm open to anyone eslse's wisdom.

DARLENE...... I got two notices that KATHLEEN joined our team...... just a glitch in the Sparks site.... She has joined..... but doesn't have her page up yet.... When you get those notices...... and they send you to the main team page..... you go down to the bottom...... and that is where they have the newest people who have joined our team....... and then most will go to her page and welcome her....... if she has a page..
