I've moved you onto this board as it's for weight issues. There are some other topics on here about the same subject as it's another thing that seems to affect so many of us :( :( :( :(

A lot of the meds we take seem to have weight gain as a side effect, and there is also a distinct possibility that with the way FM completely screws up our bodies, it could also have it's fingers in the areas that help with weight regulation. Unfortunately at the moment it's all guess work and anecdotal evidence as research is needed to try and determine exactly what happens with this rotten condition. And then throw in how we are restricted/limited with exercise that we are able to do and.......well, we all know about that side of things as well :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

I'm another who has gained an awful lot of weight and find it difficult to move it. Even resorting to things I did as a teenager that resulted in it falling off me have made no difference :( :oops: :( :oops: :( :oops: :(

As kazza has said, to lose it, we have to work extra hard at it due to our meds, and whatever else it is that this condition does to our bodies.

Thats one thing i definatly dont miss. I stopped takein all my meds cos of all the side effects of them. Why make myself feel ten times worse when the fibro is bad enough. Dont miss those AT ALL. And before you ask yes i do suffer alot wiv all the symptoms that cum wiv fibro. But thats all i do have to put up wiv and not all the side effect symptoms as well. Dont regret my decision at all.

Me too! Up until the last year or so I was a 10 for thirty years. Have put on nearly a stone and have to barely eat to shift a pound or two. Can only think I am a bit less active. Oh, and I have heartburn a lot too.
Sorry, not much consolation, but your not alone. xx

There seems to be so many of us. I too was a 10 for 20 years and within a very short period of time the weight piled on and I'm now a 16. I'm hypothyroid too and on lots of meds. I don't really mind being bigger and curvier but I do hate the thought that the excess weight will also be adversely affecting my health. I have to say the best diet (life style really) is the Dukan diet. If you stick to the diet which is low carb, low fat, high protein you WILL lose weight. I lost 21lbs over 3 months and felt full of energy and much better. Unfortunately, I fell off the wagon when I had Shingles, then my cat died, then my Mum died and then my daughter fell ill.... whoosh! half of the weight I lost came back and I thought I wasn't eating anything much at all. I think determination is key and not giving in to external pressures and the low mood and fatigue.... My biggest fight at the moment is the crushing fatigue which follows meals within approx 30 minutes.... and getting back on my low fat/carb high protein, so difficult to get back into the habit when all one wants is something "easy" to nibble on. My GP made me chuckle... he said... "as you get older and your bones get more brittle it's better to have a little meat on the bones. If you fall you will be likely to bounce rather than break". Bless him, :lol:

Dear friends, Yes, weight gain is such a problem, particularly if you are stuck in a wheelchair like me for some 33 years, apart from a few weak steps indoors. It does not seem to matter what one eats either, for my meals are very small indeed, as my throat muscles prevent me from eating much anyway, with TMJ as well.

I have tried Virgin coconut oil and at one point, I did reduce on it, and went down to a size 14 from 16/18 but now am back up to this size again. Not being able to exercise has a lot to do with it.

I am much like one lady on here who gave up all her drugs, and apart from the B.P. drug which is also for irregular heart-beats, I found I was much better coping on my own, with just paracetemol tablets for pain. The side effects of the stronger drugs were worse than what they were supposed to achieve. I do try, as mentioned before, herbal teas and herbs as much as possible. Having done the round of doctors and specialists, I find I am much better without going to them now, as it takes too much out of us anyway.

I can really recommend virgin coconut oil for so many things, not only for eating. It is lovely on jacket potatoes and waffles etc. I also use the VCO for many personal problems. It is so good for you, like Mother's milk, so natural and a lubricant. sincerely, penfriend
