I really don't think I will lose what I want in the time I wanted. I am now taking calcium, vitamins, and a soy protein powder. That's because my eating is not cutting it. My exercising isn't cooperating with me. My fibromyalgia isn't helping either. My mind says keep going and my body has been having problems and makes it where I can't eat or exercise a day or two out of the week. I am going to keep going and not let those days of chronic pain upset me. I just thank God I have been doing exercising the majority of the week. I do have more energy, it just don't help when the pain is too awful. So, I will take as long as it takes to reach my goal. I take 6 different pills in the morning and 5 at night. That's not including the vitamins and calcium I just added to the picture.

    All you've written applies to me pretty much, also. Dealing with the pain of a flare is no picnic but trying to exercise when every movement hurts is hard. We get into a cycle that has to be broken and the 'normal' rules of weightloss just do not apply. I think that we need to be more patient than most people, celebrate each small change with more joy and focus forward on every positive. There's no "just" about it; it is pretty hard. But persisting in doing the best possible on any given day is essential.

    Great exercise for those of us dealing with fms is done in water. Preferably starting out with advice from a physical therapist. Can you access a pool? Slow, slow-impact water exercises do wonders for toning which in turn makes out-of-water exercises easier to do. But it's also an incredible feeling to get into water and actually be ABLE to MOVE those parts that just don't function so well out of water anymore!

    Be patient. Consistent. Optimistic. It's up and down, but steadily improves. Just don't compare to anyone else! :)
