    Mary,
    Sometimes you just have to keep trying to upload the pic. Go to 'edit your page' & then 'edit your photo gallery'. I've had to upload a couple of times. You also might try making the picture smaller. Try a cropped picture.

    You are very welcome for the goodie & the encouragement! It helps me too!

    I HAVE overcome a lot. They say God doesn't give you more than you can handle. Evidently He believes I am VERY strong so now I believe it too!!!!

    As far as the fibromyalgia. I have been on EVERY pain medication they make. Ultram, Oxycotin, Oxycodone, Methadone, Darvon, Vicodine....you name it! Hence, part of the weight gain. I am now on Savella which is technically an antidepressant but the FDA specifically registered it for Fibromyalgia. It works great. I've been off the 'hard' stuff for a few years now. I've been on the Savella about 2. I still have bad days but nothing like I used to. I used to spend days at a time in bed if I did ANYTHING strenuous(like gardening) the day before. Exercise & the weight loss have made a HUGE difference too! It's amazing how hard it is on your body to carry around an extra 50lbs!!!

    I exercise in the pool. I can wear 10lb leg weights & do all my legs exercises(abductions, adductions, donkey kicks, etc) but can't walk on deck with them because they are to heavy. How crazy is that?

    One thing you'll find about me is that my life is an open book so if you want to know ANYthing about me just ask! I hope somebody learns something from me & my experiences!

    Love,
    Lisa
