Hi everyone! Name is Mindy and I've had fibro (officially) for 6 years, but I think I've had for closer to 15. I'm 36, married, a mother of 5, a stay at home mom, and I also do freelance art. My youngest (and last!) is now 3 and a 1/2 months old and my postpartum weight loss has stalled so I need to get back on track and focused in my efforts. My highest weight was 262lbs. in 2009. I'm currently at about 230. (my scale fluctuates from day to day give or take a lb or two) My goal is to be around 140-150 ish. This has been a painfully slow journey, but I'm determined to reach my goal even if it takes me 10 years.
My biggest challenges are getting restful sleep, even before the baby, and being able to maintain an exercise program. That's honestly been the most difficult thing. Whenever I try to start exercising, I do well for a day or two, and then the flares start setting in and I'm out of commission usually for about a week. It's so frustrating!
So, that's why I'm here! I would love to hear other people's experiences, tips, ideas, etc. on how to be healthier, lose weight, and actually be able to exercise while dealing with fibro.
