Hello. I know it has been a while since I last posted.
I have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Now this explains all the symptoms I have been having and my recently diagnosed IBS.
This also explains the fatigue and weight gain.
However despite my best efforts to lose weight, I have gained one pound since 1st sept!
Unless I am not trying hard enough?
I am doing a series of mini challenges to raise money for Sense, a deaf blind charity to help children and adults who cannot see or hear.
My challenges are:
Walk 10,000 steps for 28 days between Sept to Dec,
Swim 22 miles in a local pool in 12 weeks,
Give up chocolate,
24 hour fast on Monday 5th October.
So far the giving up chocolate has been easy. I am a self confessed chocoholic but wow! Doing this has been easy. I had hoped the weight would drop off me. Not so!
I have done 6 days worth of walking 10,000 steps. I have swum 40 lengths so far.
Walking and swimming does help my fibromyalgia symptoms to lessen.
In my last post I mentioned about the live well stations where you can weigh yourself, have your body fat measured and your blood pressure taken.
On the plus side, my body fat is going down, albeit slowly!
I'm not asking for advice as I know in my head what I need / should do. I am just expressing my frustration at not being able to lose weight as much as I would like!
Cheers for reading this post!
