Aches & Pains

Hi everyone.

As there have been a lot of recent posts about joint pain. I just thought I would mention this.

As I seem to have put on weight since starting letrozole and zoledex I thought I would try watch what I am eating and be a bit healthier.

Everyday this week I have had a big bowl of fruit for my breakfast, made up of apples, plums, pineapple and figs. I got up this morning and noticed that I wasn't quite so stiff and achy - so I have had a look at the properties of these fruits and apparently both pineapple and figs are particularly good for the joints.

As it's only been a week and this is the first day in ages that I have managed to get out of bed and be completely upright before i got to the bathroom - I am not going to get to excited - but fingers crossed and all that.

Excellent! Thank you very much, will add it to the list. I am prone to being overweight so I know I will need to be more vigilant than before so this is very helpful.

I'm prone to being overweight too - my friend and I both did the same diet a couple of years ago I stuck to it religiously she lost a stone and I think mine was about an ounce 😳 Thing is she was pretty slim before the diet too!

😅😁damnit! Know how you feel. Went to weight watchers many times! Onetime I went for weeks without losing a thing - weight was up down up down. And the leader said imagine if you weren't coming to weight watchers 🤣😂.My best weight loss r time was becoming a post lady! Worked a treat 👍🏻👣👣.

Interesting about the Pineapple 🍍 & figs might give that a try especially with my knees being so bad since Chemo

I have Steroid Weight to contend with so have changed my tea drinking habits! Bought a New Cup so instead of a Mug, I'm taking less sugar by virtue of volume, so that's a start!

Luckily there isn't any veg I don't like - spent a lot of my time growing up at my grandparents who had a small holding - was virtually force fed home grown produce - loved it particularly the gooseberry bushes and pinching my grandads peas xx
