I have had rheumatoid arthritis since age 6 1/2 and have had over 35 surgeries (not all related to it) and I know what its like to have to start over at the beginning again and again. Never giving up has been my life story. I am constantly modifying my activities to suit my body's changes. The severe damage done to my hands and elbows means I can't do serious strength training, but my alternatives have worked for me.
I have had five joint replacements (one failed and had to be redone). Its not slowing me down. I am enjoying fitness classes ranging from kickboxing to Zumba! Surgical recoveries are a nuisance, but with Sparks, I had no weight gain. No excuses when you can track your food!!!
Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Fitness Minutes: 174,883

My Goals:
I want to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle and make sure the weight never creeps back on. I want to be as fit as my body will allow me. I enjoy every minute I am able to move!


My Program:
Maintenance going well. Recovered from an elbow replacement in Jan 2011 (it failed 3 years later and I wasn't able to use my right arm for a year as it went through healing and multiple surgeries) and foot surgery on Aug 4 2011 and am working out like a demon enjoying a free liesure pass to my city's civic centers! Trying out all kinds of fitness classes and loving them!! For a change low income pays! In winter, when I can't go out, I do a lot of home workouts online and DVD's. I also have an elliptical, Swiss ball, step, dumbbells, bands, hula hoop and a skipping rope so lots of options.



Personal Information:
I am from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and volunteer for the Regional Health Authority
I am a single 55 year old living on a disability pension
I am 5' 4" and my weight varies between 130-39


Other Information:
I enjoy reading, writing, playing bridge, seeing action/fantasy movies and helping Mom with her amazing garden (when she lets me). I love going for long hikes with Mom and her darling dog Daisy. I love working and playing on a computer

    Thanks Linda. We will only use videos that have steady cams on the biking videos. Check out some of them on World Nature video. Buy a bike peddler like mine on Amazon and peddle away. It doesn't make you dizzy. Most go straight on a trail. What I love about my peddler is I can put it on a table and peddle with my arms.
    Have a great week. Stay safe. emoticon

    WalMart and Costco annoy the heck out of me at the best of times. The undies I bought-- and then ordered more -- are Joe Fresh. So pretty and such nice fabric, excellent fit!!

    emoticon Linda,
    Thank you for your kind words. I sent my granddaughter a voice message. She misses playing softball. The college she will go to in the Fall she hopes has softball.

    I hope you are doing well. Has your area opened up? Our state is having the highest numbers now. Houston is having a terrible time. I am praying for everyone.

    Hugs for your evening. Take care.
    Debbie
