I know how you all feel too. It has been a frustrating battle for me. I lost 100 pounds but it was such a battle for every pound, I wore myself down, then got to the point where I started gaining no matter how hard I tried. I've gained back 60 pounds. I still eat healthy everyday and have started doing tai chi and qi gong as a form of exercise since anything else wears me down. I've been told this is the best form of exercise for me.
I can't give up as I will gain even more and feel even worse. I can't listen to what everyone else is telling me how to lose, exercise, what to eat etc.
I need to do what is good for me. They don't understand how I feel with Lupus because our bodies respond differently.
I know there are a lot more people out there with immune problems, thyroid problems, who are on medication and are all having a difficult time losing weight.
I may not be able to lose but at least I can stay as healthy as I can by eating correctly, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep/rest and doing exercises that my body responds to.
