RE: [IP] Swelling in my legs/Exercise

Kerry - I empathize with you.  If you can walk two blocks then walk two
blocks.  Repeat - over and over.  Your body will reward you by getting
stronger and then you can go further.  

Bloom where you are planted and do what you can.  Faithfully over and over
and then do some more.

I'm sending all of the encouragement that I can.

Subject: [IP] Swelling in my legs/Exercise

I have been on the pump for 3 months now and I'm experiencing a lot of
swelling in my legs and ankles. I came home yesterday from work and my legs
from my knees down hurt and there was a indent in my legs from my socks. I
woke up with puffy eyes yesterday and today so im sure the fluid is still in
my body just sloshing back and forth. I sit a lot at work then come home and
sit in front of my computer to do school work as I am finishing by BA this
year, While i try to avoid tight clothes I am a diabetic with very little
physical activity most days, I have gained weight ( I average about
215 lbs) so i have bought new clothes in larger sizes so i can be more
comfortable. I dont have any physical reason for not excising other then it
hurts when i do it because im so out of shape and its been bloody cold for
6 months (Maine). Walking more then 2 blocks and i have shin splints. I dont
know how to get started and keep going at it when it hurts so much and I
have so much else I'm trying to do. Any suggestions?
