    Morning FMily......MiMi in NC.....where it is a nice day.....I am going to try to help my DH do some of our projects that we want to do....and I think it is going to be a nice day to do them...

    I have been having problems trying to post anything recently....I wonder if others are having the same issues....perhaps this is why it looks like it has really been slow....

    Welcome to the new members who have joined recently.....I am sure that you will be feeling better sure and check out the info under "Tips" and "Resources".....where you will find some good "tools and tips" sure and read "member toolbox" and nutrition and vitamins" and sure and ask your doctor to check your Vitamin D very important for a lot of us low Vitamin D can cause additional pain....

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it on this Monday, October 18, 2010.....

    Here is hoping that everyone has a good day....


    My personal exchanges are Vitamin D and Pain and Wrath of the Dragon....if you care to visit..

    Good Morning...

    Oh Mimi...I hope all your projects go well and you are able to enjoy a beautiful day....

    Roz glad to see you getting back on here..

    Well, I had a weekend where my tummy has been acting up...and my weight is back up to where it was...all this exercise and no weight loss here...but that will not deter me..I will be back over there this afternoon...I am determined to do this...and to do everything I can exercise wise...I will not have my doctor say..."If you just.....(fill in the blank)...."...and I am writing down everything I do..

    There was a job available today...that I could have taken and didn't ...just couldn't get motivated to do so...It was for a teacher I like...but at a school that I get less than happy to be at...and I just haven't been up to much this weekend...couldn't think of spending the whole day at this school.

    So, it is the day to start getting organized again...time to get stuff done !

    hope you all have a good day..

    I went through over a year of regular exercise with zero weight loss. It can be incredibly frustrating! But I stuck with it knowing that it was the healthy thing to do. I finally lost some weight but I think it had more to do with starting wellbutrin. We with FM, in my opinion, have very messed up metabolisms, due to both the FM itself and some of the meds.

    I know you've mentioned you're doing weights. So I'm sure you have or will start to notice at least more muscle definition. And hopefully the exercise makes you feel better, if not physically, then mentally--it does for me.

    Like I said, it's so frustrating to put the effort in and not have results. This can still really get me down and I haven't found the solution. But I wanted to let you know that I am with you--sticking to exercise even without major results!

    Thanks is nice to know someone else that has gone through least this time...I am writing it down...and have something to show my doc...I did this and this and this....My doc did try me on Wellburtrin once...and naturally...I gained more weight !

    So, I am giving it the good ol' college try...and hopefully I will at least have better muscles...
