Welcome to the team.

That is great that you have been able to drop the meds. I would not be able to move without them. I would be in just to much pain.

Keeping the exercise up and being motivated to stick to it is the best way to keep off the pounds. Keep at it.

Water classes are great for us. Any anti-gravity exercise helps with the pain and shouldn't cause more.

My experience has been that movement and energy are like the stock exchange. You have to spend some to get some! LOL

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Hi! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back in 2003. The combination of meds and stopping all activity caused me to gain about 70 pounds. I managed to lose 80 after quitting most of the meds, eating according to the Six Week body MakeOver plan, and working out. Unfortunately, as we all know, those pesky pounds have a way of creeping up and I have gained some back. It was been more than half, but I have been steady around the weight I am now for about 2 years.

I have been to the gym almost every day this week. I hurt, but my body is adjusting well. I am very excited to try Aqua Zumba this Sunday and maybe even Aqua yoga.
