Welcome to the RA FitChicks Club, Heidi. I am sorry you have been diagnosed, but know that you are in good company. I am at early stages still, but can't ever get rid of all of the pain, and even at 70-79 degree days, I am getting a cold that can wipe me out for a month or two. And I have already been in a cast from breaking my leg just after joining. How much more do we have to give before we get something in return?
So that's kind of what our team is about - doing for ourselves and sharing every little victory. I hope you can join our challenges. We do Hiking Through Europe, which is a step equivalent exercise. You count up what you've done for the week and convert them to steps (the link is under the LINKS tab on the Team Stream). So far we've made it to Poland!
We also do a weekly weigh-in. You don't have to post your weight if you don't want and you can just use + or - # pounds. We're okay with that as well.
We are happy to have you and please know that if you need anything, we are here to offer support and help in any way possible.
