    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    regarding older dieters/not exercising/ my regret

    I've had MS for twenty years and the majority of those years I worked but did not exercise and really had very little pain. (I've also had leukemia about 8 yrs ago) I still do not exercise and really haven't much at all. (I regret that now) I'm 64 and I feel like if I'd have moved more in the beginning I may be in a better condition today) just like anyone!

    Anyway, the past few years my PAIN is really bad. All the neurological pain meds are not for me. (I no longer take cymbalta, lyrica, neuronton) just baclofin for spasms, and mirapax for restless legs.

    Because of my severe pain in my feet, my hand, my neck spasms I've decided to try the No-glutin diet. It CANNOT HURT ME and I'm pretty sure I CAN STICK TO IT AS A LIFESTYLE - NOT A DIET. I do things very simply- that way I will stick to it. Here's my plan basically..

    I'm NOT EATING SWEETS, PASTA, BREADS but I CAN EAT SO MUCH OTHER GOOD HEALTHY FOODS! (like potatoes, eggs, vegetables, fish,meat, rice, fruit; yogurt, and trying to eat more fresh &
    frozen foods)
    WHAT IS MY MOTIVATION THIS TIME? MY PAIN!!! ONE DAY AT A TIME...
