It's true, even though some days it's the last thing you want to do, overall consistent activity has been shown to help. It certainly has been a huge help to me. Once I learned that firsthand, it got easier and easier to lead a mostly active life. I used to cry my way through 1 mile with Leslie Sansone. It sucked, just like losing weight did at first, but it got me to today: These days I cycle 10 miles a day 5 days a week. Yesterday I did 16 and am paying for it today -- so you kind of learn to try your best to live and learn. At the height of my pain but long before my fibro diagnosis, I was just barely living at all.

It does get easier! I think as much consistency as possible is the key. Humans are, after all, creatures of habit, with all those biorhythms and whatnot to guide us. emoticon

great idea about the notebook, I need to do that also. I have had fibro for awhile not only diagnosed finally two years ago.Having fibro is like walking a tight rope you can do some things and not two much. Moving can be the last thing you want to do, but it helps

Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.

Hi I have times like this too it isnt easy i have had fibro/lupus for over 42 yrs now in the beginning it was so soul destroying but as the years have moved on coping becomes easier you learn how to read the signals and plan your day accordingly i never plan anything social too far in advance.I do now manage at least 2 miles a day most days some days i spend on the sofa
This week has been extremely difficult we are in Norfolk on holiday and it is so hot though we are in a hotel we spend a lot of time with friends which is quite tiring but this holiday iis for Ian as he is having treatment for penile cancer
With Fibro it is a case of doing what you can when you can i have a small notebook which i carry in my badg so i write everything in including when i use my bank card as sometimes i cannot remember what it is, one week i lost 3 full days and went to pay my paper bill twice also woke up onemorning and couldnt think why Ian was still at home even though he has been off 4 month now i could have sworn he had left for work tha morning i had seen him leave with his bag maybe i just dreamt it. Take each day as it comes and exercise just 10 minutes a day to start with your body will get used to it emoticon emoticon Carol xx

Hi, 35 y/o female here with Fibro, Panic disorder, Depression, PCOS, PMDD, SVT, and a host of other issues.

First Weight: 287
Current Weight: 223.1
STG: 199
LTG: 160

Love to connect with others that understand that sometimes exercise is TOO hard to do. While hurting and dealing with Fibro Fog it's hard to get motivated to move much. I need to move more. Anyone else out there like me?

((Also, I really want a nifty weight tracker!))
