Hey everyone,

Just a quick post to say hi!

I suffer with fibromyalgia and although I've come a long way to take control of my condition I need to loose a lot of weight to give my body the best chance of a healthier happier future. Now is the time for me to smash this!!

I am starting my 12 week programme on Tuesday and just trying to get my head around a few things before hand. Looking for any tips, hints and recipe ideas you guys are happy to share with me along the way.

Hi and welcome, ajpink :)

You may also like to join the Fibromyalgia Action UK forum healthunlocked.com/fibromya...

All of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh... and I hope you'll be joining all the Events, Challenges and Clubs that we run, especially a weigh-in and the daily diary.

We've found active participation to be key to successful weight loss and, of course, it's a good way to get to know people, find inspiration and share support and encouragement.

Wishing you all the best for 2020 :)

Hi ajpink, welcome.

If you "slim smart" weight loss is not so hard! It is not all about motivation and masochism.

Some of us here find that what works is a combination of The Low Carbohydrate, High-Fat (LCHF) diet (see the forum here on Health Unlocked) and Not Snacking All Day AKA Intermittent Fasting (IF). See:https://healthunlocked.com/fasting-and-furious/posts/141714611/welcome-newbies-intermittent-fasting-faq

Welcome ajpink :)

Hopefully the Fibromyalgia link that moreless has provided can help provide you with some focused assistance in addition to this forum.

In addition to the 12 week plan, maybe have a look at joining in one of the Weekly Weigh-ins and the Daily Diarys.

Good luck and hope to see you around :)

Hello! I have rheumatoid arthritis so in a similar boat to you and understand what it can be like at times. I bet you also get bombarded with ‘cures’ and be vegan, do keto blah blah. None of which worked incidentally when I tried them. As with RA, it’s recommended to have a Mediterranean diet which I’m assuming will be similar for fibro. Fish, fruit and veg. Can your doc refer you to a dietician for additional support? Good luck!
