    Sometimes I just don't know my limits. I went to the gym today and decided to try 5 lb weights. I had only been working with 2 lb weights. They don't have 3 or 4 lb so I went for the 5 lb and I am so sorry now. My arms are hurting like crazy. I guess I learned a lesson.

    Hi Betsy:
    I know how it feels to try to do more and pay for it!!!!
    You might never be able to do more than the 2 lb weights, but at least you can do that. And you are working as hard as someone who lifts 20lb weights. I guess we have to accept a different level of activity. I applaud you for trying the weights. I can't lift a coffee cup or book, but envy you. Hang in there!
