    Hi Doris, I have Lupus which eats away the cartilage between my joints leaving me with bone on bone in some of my joints. Other joints take turns at getting swelled or in pain. I found that I would hurt myself every time I'd try to get started with exercise so I would get nowhere and even go backwards and gain more weight. When I first joined Spark People I wasn't able to do anything. Then someone suggested seated exercises. There are some great SEATED videos that I started out doing. At 1st I would try different ones for 1-2 minutes a day. I then varied them and increased to 3-4 min then 6-8 minutes. The more days I did ANYTHING the better I started to feel. I then added a standing video that I did modified. The Bollywood video. These are all on Spark People. Once I started moving around and stretching in my chair in front of the computer I started limbering up enough to start slowly walking around a bit. Then I increased that a minute at a time. I am now walking 30 minutes about3-4 days a week with prayer. I don't do anything without asking God to help me not do anything that is going to hurt me. So far so good. I hope this has helped in some way! emoticon I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me! Keep moving forward! Feel free to read my Spark Page. God Bless You, CarolAnn

    Doris, I tried responding to your SparkMail message but couldn't tell if it went through to you. Many thanks for your leadership on the arthritis teams the past 6 months since I have been on SP. You will be missed!! Enjoy your new venture!!

    Thanks, Doris104, for your comments on my page. Appreciate your offer of support and assistance. We can all use a little of that... though some of us are not good at asking for it.

    Look forward to getting to know you a bit better.
