Hi, I'm Monika and started dieting at the end of February of this year. My starting weight was 232 and I'm down to 189 right now. I would love to have some buddies to help through those sucky days Razz I would especially love to be in touch with people who have RA so I can get some new exercise ideas.

Hey sounds like you've been doing great, I've only started the end of June excerising and watching what i eat. I have knee problems and need to get the weight off. It's not easy to find exerises that don't hurt.

Hi Monica, I don't have RA, but have Fibromyalgia. I have been doing the clean eating lifestyle and using AdvoCare supplements. I am pain free and have energy for the first time in ages! I found the best excersice to me were things like Yoga, walking, swimming, circut training. If you want to be my buddy just send me a request. I am always looking for peeps to bounce encouragement and ideas off of. I noticed your wieght ticker is in kg, where are you from?

Hi Monica!! I'm glad your here!
While I don't have RA I do understand what it is like to live with disc-degeneration. Due to a large number of broken bones and genetics I had a tremendous amount of weight gain over the years. Fortunately, I have made myself aware of which foods to avoid and the ones that are beneficial to weight loss, along with a healthy life! Currently I am down 30 pounds with eating the right foods and I feel so much better!
Best of luck!

Hi Monica! I have quite a bit of weight to lose as well. I am ready to do this. I have had thyroid issues, but resently have fixed them. Let's do this together! I am doing a lowfat high protein diet. Nothing is off limits for me. I would love a buddy to talk diet foods with. I am always finding low fat delicious foods and am ready to share them... Krista

Hi Monika, I don't have RA but have Hypothyroid issues. However, it would be fun to have another buddy. Sending a buddy invite now.

I need help with dieting
Probably lowering your calories by at least 500 a day and eating clean is your best bet.
