Hey there...I'm just checking in after a long disappearance. I was on this forum for several dedicated months, did great on Atkins. At that time I had lost 45lbs in 6 months without exercising!! This was 1 1/2 years ago. Then a year ago, in Dec '07 I became terribly ill. All the drs said was I have fibromyalgia. I fell off my diet as I was too weak and tired to cook and eat right. I also have hypothyroid. Amazing how a little gland can wreak such havoc on your body when not working right. I still have to go back for more tests. But, I've been feeling better and started back on my new way of eating last week.
What's different this time??
Regular exercising. I joined a gym and go 4 nights a week after work, plus I use my home total gym in the morning.
No more diet drinks...at all. Now it's all water, and if need be to pick me up I'll drink some black coffee or unsweetened brewed iced tea at work.
I will NOT give in to my once loved redi whip cravings as I did last time. God, I loved that stuff!!
These may sound like little demands I put on myself, but it really does matter in determining how much and how fast I can lose this weight. The biggest hurdle I've gotten over was giving up my much loved carbs. I don't miss them tho thinking about all of the processed foods I was eating.
Thanks for reading. I just wanted to say that I'm not a failure as I did drop out of this forum, but now I'm back and ready to do things right this time.
Q: Does anyone else have fibromylgia while doing low carb??
