Hi! I also have fibromyalgia, so I "feel your pain" as it were! I'm also hoping that a change in my diet might help my pain levels. They do say that exercise can help your pain levels in the long run (it's just getting past the original pain to get that far :P ).
Midnight snacking is something I'm struggling with, but once I get into bed, I'm suddenly hungry! Looking forward to seeing you around!

Welcome! I too have chronic pain issues. Have you seen this video by Dr. Greger from Nutritionfacts.org.? (Dr. Greger scans the medical literature to find new research about nutrition and health and puts out a video every day. This one has to do with diet and fibromyalgia.)
Thought you might be interested. I found that my pain did improve as my diet improved. When I eliminated dairy and other inflammatory foods. My pain was more controllable. It did not go away completely, but it did give me some better days and allow me to have a more enjoyable life. (I have been on disabilty for many health issues for 4 years.) My diet is what is keeping me as healthy as I can be.
Plan your snacks and keep your inner dialogue going at all times...........you know "make a better choice than this" "I shouldn't eat that" "walk away", etc. Best of luck to you, Pat
I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Here I am, just beginning my journey. It feels so good to track my food and exercise again, I don't know why I ever stop.Just hard to do good things for myself, I suppose. I have fibromyalgia, which can really get me down. I work full time, and cook good meals, my downfall is snacking. When I hurt, I tend to eat. I hope that this forum give me the kick in the jeans that I need to resume caring for me!
