I had cervical surgery almost a year and a half ago. Before that I had lost 65 pounds and was lifting weights. I felt and looked the best I have in years. Now I have been diagnosed with fibro also and take a muscle relaxer with Lexapro. I have gained over twenty pounds. I have managed to lose alittle, but without being able to really exercise it is so hard. It is very discouraging to lose all that weight and tone up, now I am heavier and flabby again. I know what you feel, everyday I get upset with myself that I am so limited right now as to exercising and losing weight. Hang in there, I just tell myself I will get back to where I was and take it one day at a time trying to eat right.
