exercise and weight loss with fibromyalgia

greetings dear fibro buds,
two years ago i started a quest to regain my body health. when i started my weight was 186. today i am beyond delighted to say my weight is 126 and i am strong. sure i still have fibromyalgia and all the delightful pain it brings. what i do notice is that when fibro visits those visits are less often and they wear soft slippers instead of combat boots.
for exercise i attend physical therapy, hike, dance and kayak. some days i am a tigress ripping her way to health. other days i am a kitten stretching my paws ever so gently toward my goal.
attitude and water have been at my side cheering me on. i still have my bits of candy and cake. i just eat veggies first, giggle.
some of you were here when i started this quest. i thought i would check in and ask how you are doing with your quest for health. jen?
i won't say it has been easy. it hasn't. the exercise was the hardest to stick with. now it is a way of life. a good way. how heavenly it is to wear a size 9 instead of a size 18. who would have thought i would ever wear a size with only one number!!? not me. yet here i am and now i can rest and maintain.
finally i can do a cartwheel without feeling like my arms are supporting the weight of the world. giggle.
love and peace,
