I'm as messed up as you are! Well, I don't have fibro (thank the good Lord), but I have hypothyroidism, depression, social anxiety, IBD, Type II diabetes, migraines, PCOS, and an irrational fear of clowns. ;o)

You are in good company here, and I am more than willing to be your cheerleader. I would say the first day of any diet is hard, but if you can stick it through 2 weeks of faithful dieting and exercise, then it will become a habit.

Make sure you check this site frequently, as there is a ton (HA!) of great advice to be had.

You can do this. You wouldn't be here if you couldn't!

thanks for the reply. i was worried there was no one out there. you really are a good cheerleader already. i am awaiting my blood tests that my fibro. doc takes every 6 months and hopefully all will come back regular. do you think it is harder to lose by being on so many meds.? (i assume you are on some too). Smile

I haven't had health care for the last 6 months, so I have not been taking any meds at all. Horrible, I know, but I have found that as I've been losing weight, some of my medical problems have been "correcting" themselves. The only things I still have a problem with are my depression/anxiety and migraines. I forgot to add Acid Reflux Disease to my myriad diseases, but since I've been on this "health kick," even that has been better.

From what I have found/been told, is that yes, it is a little more difficult when you are on some meds and when you have some conditions. But don't let these thoughts enter your mind. Actually, do the opposite. Make yourself think that you have it easier and see where that takes you. Your mind is the most important part of losing weight. If you believe you can do it, then you will. Make the choice right now to believe you are going to do this, and you will. When you have doubts, come and talk to one of us!

On thing which has helped a lot has been taking a fiber supplement. I got a huge container of the stuff to mix with water, and I take it twice a day. Also, I will take it when I feel heartburn, and it totally gets rid of it. I would recommend doing the same. It's amazing what happens when you eat what you are supposed to!

Oh, and one of my favorite salads is very filling and has a small calorie count. Take two leaves of lettuce, rip them up, and then cut up one small orange into pieces. Add 1 teaspoon of soy sauce and sprinkle with cinnamon. Toss and enjoy. It's sweet, savory, and very, very good. Once I get to the part of my diet where I can have nuts again (I'm on the Fat Smash Diet), I'll be adding some almonds for a little bit of crunch. And cheese. I love love love cheese.

Hi there. I'm new here also and I see we have the same goal weight. I too have had some depression issues that started after my 3rd child was born. He's 8 now so I think i'm stuck with it for life.

I also work in nursing and had a back injury a few years back. It completly healed and I went back to work but I find now that i'm carrying all this extra weight again it's flaring up when I least expect it.

I'm really glad to have found this site. I love looking at people's losses even if they are only a portion of a pound it's better than a gain. I'm really hopeful that this place is going to help me.

cheering you on also..
