Ditto here. I just don't have the patience to keep track of the sales vs. the coupons and tryng to match them up. I am happy with just buying what is on sale. As long as I look at the flyers the day before I go shopping, I am happy. I like to shop as if I were a rich lady of leisure.

I'm tired of pain from osteoarthritis and plantar fasciitis! I know I have to lose weight, but it is so hard when it hurts to walk and I know I need to exercise!

Abso-friggin-lutely !!! You - and evryone else - have the right to use those .. and the employee who treated you that way needs to be reported .. who knows how many others she has done this to. You are far more patient than I would have been ... hold your head high and keep on saving .. good job on that !

sorry you have to deal with all of that. Is there any kind of cushioning support that will help with the feet? If only you could get a little comfortable then you could do short walks.

Have you or can you find a water exercise class? It takes the weight off from your joints and feet. After my hip fracture, it was a life saver. I'm about ready to move on to something more aerobically challenging, but the pool exercise classes were a life-saver when it came to regaining flexibility and range of motion. Make sure the pool is warm enough.

Chopper, can you try a recumbent bike/rowing machine? My bone doc recommended that I use one after I broke my ankle a few years ago. I use it every day when the weather's nasty, and with TV or music, it's pretty painless to get in 30 minutes or so.

Oh, I just saw Claire's water class rec, that would be a great idea too!

Chopper have you tried inserts for your shoes?

My doctor had me get fitted for some superfeet inserts and they helped a great deal.

The inserts and walking for exercise has made the problem much easier to deal with.

Now I only have to furniturewalk* three or four times a year, I am quite a sight to behold!


*A furniture-walker is one of those folks who walks around the house hanging onto the furniture

I have only done "furniture walk" this whole winter. My definition is I bump into the furniture since it won't move out of the way, lol. It has been too cold for too many months and Icy sidewalks, why do people think they need not shovel when we only get a little snow at a time. It gets compacted and then treachorous. I was at a big shopping mall the other day, not on purpose. I can tell my hip joints is creaky. Need to get the body parts moving again.

I have the same problem. The one thing I miss the most are the long walks I used to take on a nice day. But with the pain in my hip and spine, walking is out of the question. And then there is the getting out of breath when I walk even too fast and rush when doing a chore right in my own home. I wanted to join the swimming at the local pool. But Winthrop refused to sign off on it and provide transportation. Fifteen, twenty years ago, I could have walked there. Even in cold weather. I would have bundled up and enjoyed the brisk air. Short of wrapping myself up in an Army blanket, I could never make it now.

I want all computers that the TV weatherfolks have, taken away. Three times in one broadcast they have been given extensive air time. I know we have a storm coming. And that is all I need to know. What is happening out in the middle of the Atlantic, I just don't care. It is not coming inshore. It is not going to affect our weather. But just tell me when to expect the storm and how much snow. That way I can plan my days before it arrives. If I am really desperate to know about the weather, I will go to the Farmers Almanac.
