good going! I have fibro among other things. My doctor told me exercise is very important for managing this disease. I would suggest you take the time to stretch after your workouts to minimize soreness.

Woo hoo for you! Just take things slow and listen to your body. I've worked with a number of people with fibro who say a regular exercise routine helps reduce the chances of flare ups.

Congrats on your renewed efforts. I have a friend with fibro and she has several strength exercises and stretches recommended by her doctor. She's been doing them for years and they've really helped her. I would recommend discussing your goals with your doctor. And don't beat yourself up when you have a day when you need to take time off from exercise. Listen to your body. I hope it helps you with your pain.

I exercised today. I haven't exercised in several years. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2009. I am quite anxious about how my body will react. I didn't exercise much, about fifteen minutes of strength training and about ten minutes walking. In any case, I'm proud of myself. Oh, I am looking for friends too! emoticon
