Hello everyone :) I'm new to DB and excited to give this a try. I have some mobility issues as well, so no running or jumping for me either, but I try to go on slow walks with my cane everyday and do some simple bodyweight exercises from time to time. Mostly I struggle with mental health though (a fun mix of schizophrenia, depression and autism), so things can get overwhelming pretty fast. I'm staying optimistic though, setting achievable goals, and giving it my all :) I'm sure all of us can do this and get to a weight we feel comfortable with :) so yay, here's to us!

Hey, Chris! My daughter is Autistic and struggles with depression (among other things, like you), and she's an amazing person. I've found that the slow walks and the body-weight stuff really seem to be doing it for me, this time, so I hope they work for you, too.

What kind of cane do you have, if you don't mind me asking? I've just "graduated" to one.

I'm all excited, because I got a new cane to replace my old one (my old guy was stolen straight out of my car). It is getting sized today, and then I am going to take it out and work with it.

Hi. Used to participate in ultra trail runs and lift. The Fibromyalgia hit my right leg, back and hope for the future. I have up for several years until I was able to get chronic pain under control and am working my way back. Due to Depression and Anxiety at times I take one step forward and two steps back but still trying.

Hey, count on that step forward, though! I feel you (I have been all over the place in the last 5-6 years) and I know Fibro is no joke. Anything specific you have that is working for you? Right know, it is just walking my pup (he's little, so he doesn't tire me out too easily)

  • Welcome! I'm Carissa. I'm 34, have some mobility issues, an autoimmune disorder, and am still rocking the whole DB thing this year. Because, well, I think I can.

    I can't do the running/high impact stuff I used to, so I'm looking for some other ways to keep moving, and hoping to meet some other folks who have a sense of humor about approaching the "stairway to success."
