    Lost about 5 lbs. needing do more exercise. Fibromyalgia is slowing me down. Anyone with tips to reduce the pain.

    There are good drugs for fibromyalgia. I have seen theories about inflammatory foods (sugar, refined grains, even artificial sweeteners). You could try it.

    I'm turning 41 in two weeks and also suffer from health related pain and other symptoms (MS). On top of my daily medication, I find that nutrition and exercise help me manage both pain and fatigue. Feel free to message me and/or friend request if you want to talk. I'm happy to talk and support.

    I am almost 69 yrs . old and weigh over 300 lbs. all my vitals are good , but I am very uncomfortable .I stay below 1800 cals, do water aerobics 3 days a week, 60 min each day. I gained 100 lbs years ago by quitting smoking while going through menopause. cant seem to lose. my question , is there anyone else my age on here?

    Hey bjpjsmith. I didn't have much luck with water for weight lis but it did help strength. Sometimes our portion controls are off. This can cause us to have too many or not enough calories which can cause some very poor results in weight loss. When I first started counting calories I was pretty generous in what I was calling a portion and didn't lose much weight.

    I'll be 48 in May. I lost 189lbs 4 years ago and have gained 35 back. I'm down 5 since I started tracking and exercising again. I'm looking for motivation, support etc. I don't know how to add a friend but would love for y'all to add me. I'll accept all and hopefully we can work together to support and motivate each other!!! Thx!!

    Hey guys! Can I join your message board? I am 60 years old and struggled with weight my whole life; in my younger years I controlled my weight with a LOT of exercise. Today my age and health issues prevent much exercise other than walking. At one point I was unable to walk at all for several years and my weight went way up. Now I am looking for a way to lose weight...I am not crazy about going to group meetings so I thought I would give this a try. I have lost some 25 lbs on my own, but I think I need some help with motiviation and some place to vent. I feel alone out here.

    So today is a new day that I feel just tired and unmotivated. What are some good ideas today for a cold breezy day to get me moving. Just looking to burn some calories. How are you guys getting past the fatigue
  • JKarl67826JKarl67826 Posts: 2Member Member Posts: 2Member Member
    I start off walking...seems that if I can just start I feel better.
