Thanks so much for the caring -- I know I have a ways to go, but I won't give up. Have had my Mom visiting for 10 days and we have overdone everything try to do all the stuff we had to do. But, I'll feel it in a couple of days. groan. This too shall pass - chuckle

I understand how Fibromyalgia can affect you as I too have it. One thing I was told and I feel it is true that even if you are not feeling well you still need to get some exercise. I find that if I don't I actually feel worse than if I do it. Good luck. I know you can do it. emoticon

My original weight gain started a long time ago what a pre-cancerousuterine tumor blossomed really fast, made me very ill and had to have a hysterectomy. Doc's said the extra weight gain was estrogen related. Weight went up and down for years. Later, breast cancer was estrogen related. Weight still went up and down. Needed a left hip replacement Aug 2007, doc asked if I could lose about 15#. I said okay. Instead I gained 15. Part of that was due to not being able to walk for several months before. After surgery I was doing great with physical exercise, but weight kept creeping up. Then I had bad flu for 3 weeks. After all that, did not lose one pound. Had burning d for months. I began to do process of elimation of foods. Finally found I had Celiac disease, lactose intolerance, soy problems, etc. Doc sent me to nutritionist - did not help much. Found two gluten-free cookbooks in library with everything I need. Have now instituted nutrition program to cover gluten-free, lactose free, and weight loss all together. Am 12 pounds down now, but not as much as I would like. Have Fibromyalgia, so the physical exercise is limited to my level of pain and muscle tiredness.

It has been a long 6 months since I got on my really good routine. Am hoping for more loss faster. When I lose more, I look forward to treating myself to some new clothes and shoes. And a small sight-seeing trip. I will always be on my Celiac/Weightloss diet as it is a matter of survival, and no one can do it for me. I have to take the self-responsibility to get myself into good health and stay there.

I am on the verge of losing a total of 150 lbs.! With each lb. I have lost along the way I have felt such self satisfaction and wonder at how great I am doing. I have never had such success with anything in my life before. I never bothered with giving myself "treats" for making goals except being able to buy clothes that fit me. At that, my sister sometimes has to remind me that "gee that is to big for you".

The satisfaction of being able to lose it and keep it off has been a big motivator for me. However, I think I do deserve a treat...Ummmmmm...Let's see. I will take a road trip to see my Oldest sister Karen in PA. That will be fun! Non fattening, Even better!
