Well was doing quite well on healthy eating plan and exercise programme ( not diet) going to the gym and classes regularly for a week then boom got a heavy cold last monday and felt c**p and went off track but went to the gym to zumba class last night although didn't feel like it as in nice warm house and the studio is freezing, really enjoyed it but it is upsetting as makes me realise how much I cannot do. I dont think these restrictions are due to weight but to RA. Can't lift arms above head and the weight would not stop me doing that.
Today is weigh in day and I approached the scales with some trepidation but what a nice surprise lost 2 more pounds. I was expecting that I would have put some on or at least stayed the same. This has given me a boost and going to the gym when hobby gets back with car.
Must keep it up as weigh in with the nurse next week and rheumy appt week after and would like to lose a bit more before then.
gentle hugs to you all
