Dito Thanks Kylie

Nothing feels better than how skinny feels.

Just keep moving every step counts. Never exclude things you like from your diet; all in moderation! It should NEVER be about a DIET. That's only temporary. It should be a lifestyle change.

I don't know what meds you are on that are making you gain weight, possibly Neurontin or Lyrica. I couldn't take either one. I'm successfully taking Topamax, and one of its side effects is that it suppresses the appetite. I've been able to lose weight on it when my thyroid numbers are good. Topamax is an anti-seizure drug that helps lessen the exagerrated pain message that your nerves send to your brain.

"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 Margie. My name is Michelle, I'm 39 and married and I live in Tampa Bay. It really sounds like you've been through a lot this year. I also have fibromyalgia and some other health problems and gained a lot of weight over the last several years. If you are only 47, you are way too young to give up on yourself. You have a lot of life left to live! You can message me anytime you need support. I'd be happy to have you as a spark friend.

Hello Everyone, My name is Margie and I'm 47 yrs old with 7 children and 3 grandchildren. Newly diagnosed with Fibro and major weight gain since June due many medical issues including being placed on life support for 9 days in June. I woke up on July 4th! I spent the majority of the first 6 months of this year in bed feeling sorry for myself and in severe pain. All I did was get sicker. Once I was placed on life support my family started planning my death. Thank God he had other plans for me. I am in daily pain and refuse to give in. I'm fighting to take back control of my body and life. The meds side effect is "weight gain" WONDERFUL! The meds help take the edge off but still have mild to severe pain. Along with high BP, Asthma/COPD and other things.

I'm hoping to meet someone where we can help each other stay motivated, accountable and get healthy together. My worst issue is that I do tend to loose motivation and want to give up. So I have to try really hard to keep myself motivated. This is not a temp diet plan for me but an all out life change. I eat healthy and avoid fast foods or prepackaged meals of any type. I eat allot of fruits, veggies, fish and 4-5 32 oz bottles a day.

Good Luck to all going thru this weight loss journey. Looking forward to hearing from you.
