There are a lot of low impact and seated videos on Sparkpeople to keep you moving. Try some out and see which ones you like best. And if you want to lose weight without exercising, you can perchase DR. Joel Fuhrman's book "Eat To Live". I lost 17pounds without even moving. This was when neither knee would cooperate. Now I can exercise again.
Good Luck!

Thank you Toni, for the warm welcome! Yes, that is exactly what happened with me - I went from active to completely sedentary almost overnight, and BOOM - the weight piled on....OH, and a few rounds of prednisone didn't help either! emoticon

I'm super happy to be here and look forward to trying to integrate healthy eating and movement into my life as much as possible. emoticon

Welcome Rubyleo1! I am so sorry to hear about you hobbling around. But I know exactly how you feel. One day you are this active person, and the next day walking with a cane. We used to be active and when you stop being active, here comes the WEIGHT! But the good news is we have Sparkpeople. I have learned a lot on this website and hope you do too.
Good Luck.
Toni

Hello fellow arthritis folks! I'm brand new here - just joined SP today, so I really don't know how to navigate much yet. But the very first thing I searched for was an RA/general arthritis forum. I have severe RA in my hips, and I cannot tell ya'll how much I miss exercising - or just movement!

I use a cane to hobble about. I used to be very active - walking, dancing classes, yoga....but I'm pretty disabled at this point.

Still, I notice that some of you have mentioned seated workouts available on the site - so I'm going to check those out.

I start Remicade IV infusions next week to try to get my RA under control - hopefully that will help too.

Happy to be here, and I wish every one a happy, healthy day!

Welcome Granpattie. I know what you mean. Sometimes when you stand for too long excercising, it hurts worse. That is when I wrap my knee in ice. Then the next day I do a seated video from Sparkpeople.
Good luck!

Hi, I'm new to the team. I have a lot of osteoarthritis...knees, toes, fingers and one shoulder.
My knees have been bone-on-bone for years now, but they can't do knee replacements because I carry so much weight in my legs. I tried water aerobics. It was working but the chemicals in the pool caused me horrible, extensive eczema. It was terrible. It took several months to clear up. So, no more pool time for me.

I now have a FitBit Flex to encourage me to move more. I do that mostly around the house. I do some standing exercise videos, but sit when I need to and just adapt them. I do a lot of chair aerobics, chair zumba, the routines from Spark and the routines in the Chair Exercise team.

I had kind of given up for awhile after I had to give up the pool, but I'm back now, seriously trying. Down 12 so far, with a looooong way to go.

Looking forward to making new friends here and maybe learning more ways to handle this. I'm a little afraid that walking around more will do more damage to my knees.

I am new to the team. I too used to walk two miles 5 times a week and work out at the gym. My daughter is a personal trainer and was helping me. But then one day I woke up in severe knee pain. I went to the doctor and they sent me to physical therapy, that didn't work so we had Synvisc. After the second injection, I had no pain, but after the third, I was thrown back into agony. I finally got a cortisone shot because I was desperate. 50 pounds later I am still in pain. The surgeon said I cannot have the knee replacement yet because I am not where I need to be. My exercise ability is limited. I have been doing the seated workouts from Sparkpeople and that is the only exercise I get besides my recumbent bike (WHEN THE PAIN ALLOWS). I cannot lose like when I was walking. I remain in MISERY. I hope to get some good advice from other fellow sufferers. emoticon

Hi Team,
I was an avid runner until about 2 years ago when arthritis in my knees got too bad (doctor said that it is "bone on bone). Since that time I have gained 40 pounds. My goal is to take that weight off. I look forward to getting to know you better. Stop by my Sparkpage and say "Hi" if you get a minute.
Your fellow Sparker,
Bob

Welcome back Kay,
I hope you find some answers to you ankles, knees and hips. Right now I am controlling by with fasting and diet. Usually, I am not in a lot of pain unless I let up on my eating. My pain is in my hands and shoulders right now but almost all of my joints have been hurting at sometime or other. I also have Psoriasis.

Good luck and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi, I am new to the team and have recently returned to SP. I'm 52 and also interested in learning how people manage their arthritis. My arthritis is in my ankle, knees and hip. Let me add carpal tunnel as well. Even though I have had arthritis for about 5 years, it wasn't until this year that is affected my mobility. I had cortisone shots in my ankle and 1 knee for the 1rst time. Since the shots, I have had cramps in my foot and ankle 3 to 4 times a week during the evening. Has anyone else had this issue?

Welcome to the Team Sheri,
I have not been diagnosed yet but it is in by hands also. I am trying diet things for it. I went on the internet and just started seaching for things. Give that try. I feel like I have been on a new learning curve with all this. Keep us posted!

Hello, all!

My name is Sheri. I'm new to this team, but not Spark. I've recently been diagnosed with arthritis in my hands. My thumb has no cartilage at the base. I wear a splint when it hurts, which is most of the time. My doctor has suggested a cortisone injection. He says there is surgery, but recovery is six months. I also have carpal tunnel syndrome, and cubital tunnel syndrome (elbows), which have caused nerve damage, which requires surgery asap. My doctor doesn't recommend anti inflammatory meds for me at this time because they cause water retention, and that would make the carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes worse.

I am interested in hearing about others experiences in managing pain, and particularly helpful tips for someone with arthritis in their hands...it's become difficult to do simple things like open containers, flossing, you know, everyday stuff! At 52, I feel way too young to give up!

Also, sorry this is a long intro, anyone test positive for the HLA-B27 antigen? My daughter has RA, and this antigen. Supposedly, she can only have this if both parents are at least recessive.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Everyone. My name is Cindy and I joined SP a couple of days ago. All the exercise I have been doing has really reminded me of my arthritis, and I need your support to keep it up. Glad there are others here who can keep me motivated when it hurts.

Hi my name is Debbie. I don't know for sure what kind of arthritis I have. I am a missionary in Italy and I have an appointment in July. I am 54 years old. It started in my fingers and toes and when I sleep I feel like it is in every joint. I happened upon a book a week ago that is really helping me called Conquering Arthritis by Barbara Allan. It is already helping mine. I hope this may help others also. I am looking forward to meeting some people.

Hi, I'm Christina, I'm 48.
I joined this team recently because I got a diagnosis of arthritis in my hip, on March 12th. This was based on an x ray they took of my right hip. My mother also has arthritis and she now has two 'new' hips and a 'new' knee.
I'm here to learn about how to best take care of myself and my health.

In the meantime the fysiotherapist and the GP said that they think the pain I have is not caused by the arthritis but by (???) something else. It's not yet clear what the cause is. I've started exercising more and started taking glucosamine.

I am new to the team and have had arthritis for many years. Most of my pain is the result of a horrific car accident in 1982 and now my hip is starting to degenerate more. This makes it harder to do my job and I have 3 more years to retirement.

I am looking forward to ideas from all of you for improving the quality of life for us. More weight loss would obviously help! emoticon emoticon

Hi! I am new here

I have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia which I got from my mother. She wouldn't go to the doctors or do what they wanted her to do, so by age 45 her hands an feets had growths and she spent the last 30 years in a wheel chair. I made up my mind that is not the way I want to live if I have a choice.
I dont tell people I have arthritis. I am trying to loose weight to help my joints. I clean a school 10 months a year. The change of diet and exercises I do here have helped me a lot. I just have to learn to slow down and not push myself. I dont need to add any more pain. The key is to keep moving.

The weather is all mixed up. I live in Las Vegas and it was in the 20's when I went out to get the paper this morning. It is only going to get to the low 40's today! Weird...I went on stationary bike inside where it is warm. emoticon

I forgot to mention that I have osteoarthritis and the joints are really hurting because of weather, but I am determined to keep moving.

My left wrist has been hurting for some six weeks now. I had an x-ray, and I didn't break it. The physician's assistant said it looks like arthritis, but I don't actually see the doctor until Jan 12th. So I'm just waiting to see if it really is arthritis, and if so, what do I do other than be in pain.

I am having way too much problems getting into the site.

I will have to delete off. Sorry.

Not sure why your site is a problem.

I have just gone from having one hip acknowledged with degenerative joint disease to my shoulders, spine, wrists, ankles and one knee. Don't quite know what I did right to my left leg, but I will take the gift. My goal is to be able to hike again and to keep up with the grandchildren. When I kept active, things didn't hurt as much. But as I got sedentary, it is now harder to get moving again.

Welcome to all! This site/team is amazing. There is so many positive examples of being able to achieve the goals even through the medical situations we face. I have found I need to sign up for the long journey, and be grateful for every thing. I have learned many valuable lessons that I would have pass by unaware if it wasn't for my pain. Pain is one powerful teacher. We can do it easier when we hang together and support each other. I am very grateful for the members of this team and emoticon
Sincerely, Julia
