Hi Laurie -

Welcome to SparkPeople!!

Interesting about your son being in Guam... that takes me back a few years to when my dad got his ham radio license and briefly entertained the idea of uprooting the family and moving to Guam for a civilian job as a radio operator (I think in connection to the Navy base but I'm not really sure.).

There's at least one SparkPerson member who actually lives in Guam - can't think of her Spark handle right now but I can look it up... Her name's Jane.

On the days I don't feel like I can handle a lot of exercise, I gain some benefit from my rebounder. I have a handle so I can hang on for dear life, or just simply not bounce as hard. So that might be something you could try. We do have a rebounder team here.

Don't worry about being shy and posting or not... you can still gain benefit just reading through the message boards!

Hi everyone~
I'm new to SparkPeople, and I'm kind of intimidated by message boards, but decided to stick my toe in the water anyway. :)

My name is Laurie, and I've joined SparkPeople to try to get more fit and lose weight. I have back pain and lots of inflexibility, so it makes exercise a big challenge. I'm hoping that I can find ideas here that will help me move more without exacerbating the pain.

I'm from Wisconsin, my husband and I have been married for 30 years....whoa, that's a long time! :) We have a daughter who lives near us and a son and daughter-in-law living on the other side of world in Guam because he is enlisted in the Navy.

I'm not promising I will post a lot, but it's not because I'm antisocial.....just a bit shy and introverted,

Have a great day!

Laurie
