Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis

Hi all I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis in lower back and in feet! Dr wants me to loose weight (like 70lbs or a little more) does anyone know of anything I can do, I have to go back and see him the week after Christmas!and need to have lost something!Things I can't do set a lot, stand longer than 10-20 minutes (that's cooking), pick up anything over 30lbs, can't bend over to pick anything up off floor, no twisting of lower back, nothing bent over, no kind of sit-ups,can't walk a lot no more than 30 minutes in a store, no stretching! Any time I have tried any of this or walking too much it slips the lower disk out and I'm in the er getting shots! I know I can't take diet pills because of all the meds I'm on and everything. Dr just told me to eat right and no coke!! Tried that the month before I seen him and I had gained 10lbs! Half the meds I'm on says weight gain as a side effect!! I'm at a loss and have no idea how to loose weight especially at thanksgiving and Christmas (that's when everyone gains weight) lol!

You could try to eat healthy 3days out of the week maybe?
