Hi y'all, I'm new here. After I was diagnosed about two years ago with fibromyalgia, I really took a downhill slide. I didn't realize how much things had deteriorated until my first grandson was born this past January. I hardly had the strength to hold him. So I finally decided to get off the slide and start living my life. I explored opportunities for gentle but effective exercise, and ended up joining Curves. I actually like it. I started slow, and the first couple of weeks found me exhausted after each 30-minute workout. I would spend the rest of the day on the couch napping. But I was committed, and continued to go three days a week, M-W-F. It took about six weeks before I really started to feel good. Then I joined a community Arthritis Aquatics class on T & Th that I absolutely love. I don't do well in the heat and spend most of my time indoors in the AC. So just to be outdoors in the sunshine, in the water, with a bunch of really nice ladies really makes my day. So here I am. After 10 weeks of exercise and SparkPeople, I have lost 10 pounds and actually look forward to exercise for the first time in a long time. If someone had told me a year ago that I could be exercising five days a week, I would have thought they were nuts! Now, my pain is actually worse when I skip a day at Curves or the pool!
