Trying to lose weight with a chronic illness.
Monday, March 15, 2021
I suffer from Fibromyalgia. It is a very painful disease. I never know how I am gonna feel the next day. Some days I wake up and can get on my peddler and peddle myself into a glorious sweat. Other days I wake up and I dread getting clothes on because my skin feels like it is on fire and very painful.
This has made for a rough and bumpy ride in my weight loss journey. I have days that I can get in there and get a good sweat and peddle hard. The weight comes off better. I eat better. I feel better. Then in the middle of this good streak, I will have anywhere from a day to up to a month so far that I haven't been able to work out because of how bad I am hurting. These days make me feel like I am gonna be fat forever. I tend to want comfort foods. I am getting better on those days about eating healthier on those days and trying to stay with in my calorie count. On those days I make sure to get on my water in too. I mean all I drink is water with fruit in it to flaver it.
I really wish I could have a baseline and stay there but that is not happening. I just got to fight when I can. Then take it easy when I can too. I only have one body and it is malfunctioning and I have to work with it not against it.
