The first week of taking care for myself in a consistent way shows results. I weighted in at 3kg (around 6.5 pounds) less, than a week before. This is due to water-loss.
I've changed my diet, watch what I eat and track it.
I drink my water - not always the amount I plan for, but over all way more than before and it has done its work.
Up to now every day in September I did my exercise. 10 minutes and some walking. From the past I know, that if I get too ambitious I will drop it. But those tiny 10 minutes, that I is something that I can manage.
I have been to the hairdresser's. I asked her about some hair-loss that I suspected. And she confirmed it. She told me, that sometimes vitamin D deficit could be the culprit. So I investigated it. I don't go outside very often and vitamin D is built by the body with help from the sun. When I looked further into this matter I found, that even muscle pain and an overall weakness in muscles and joints can be caused by vitamin D deficit.
Now I take a highly dosed vitamin D supplement and the muscle pain is much less. It feels so much easier to move and so much lighter.
I am so used to cope with this pain and now it feels so unusual that the pain is subsiding. I will see whether this happens simply coincidentally or whether I have found a solution.
At the moment movement is so easy - it is a joy! Of course the overall strength is not the best but now I can work on that - almost painfree!
