hey ladies and gents,
 
I'm in the throes of a huge flare and can't help the urge for sugar hits and rubbish foods. I can see myself balooning up to 15 stone again(240lbs) and just don't seem to be the captain of my ship anymore.
 
Is it because i feel so let down by my body, it feels like my muscles are tearing when i'm exercising, i know i have to just keep going but doesn't it see so hard sometimes.
 
Sorry, i'm just out of steam and PMA tonight. shakehead
 
Must keep going, must keep...... must.....and i'm asleep again rolleyes

((Hugs..Boo))

I break down every once and awhile and have wee little pity party(cry). I hate it when I do, but I think that's how I get rid of some stress and anger about my body. Sometimes I just can't believe I'm not like I was! Can be so irritating! In about 2 yrs time I have gained 50-60lbs.

I hope your not over doing your exercising routine, maybe cut it down by 5 min or drop the intensity level by a bit. But, it is great your moving!

I have a major sweet tooth! Whenever I am down, I have a real tough time on resiting any type of treat. :-) I like to blame it on my grandpa for showing me that putting sugar on a nice slice of beefsteak tomato is o.k. Hee-Hee!

Well hun, I wish you a better rest of the day!

if its any comfort, the craving for sweets is because the genes for that and fibro are very close to each other. so meds that help fibro can trigger cravings. yeah frustrating isnt it

Beanly, according to the National Institute of Health, they haven't found a gene for fibromyalgia but they are thinking this could be a possibility.  They are searching out all angles.  I hope they find something soon!

fibro fog... i meant bipolar and other seratonin-based disorders per my neurology specialist here in nyc. his wife is an md and geneticist and he thinks they'll have them all mapped within 10 yrs. it's really fascinating. specifically depakote for bipolar and migraine prevention works on receptors [not genes duh] that are right near the sweet craving receptors. sorry for confusion lol

I'm sorry your in a flare Boo. Have you tried sucking on hard candy to cut down on the calories, Tootsie Pops are good cause you get to the chocolate at the end.
 
I grew up with a sugar addict dad. A meal wasn't a meal unless you had dessert at the end.
 
Get better and keep your hands busy as long as you can.
 
luv and hugs

Sorry about your flare boo. Hope it passes quickly. Flares can be so wicked. I had one earlier
this week and craved mashed potatoes and gravy and cream cheese and crescents, and yes I
ate them. I even had a hot fudge sundae! When we flare, I think it is natural to go for the comfort foods because we are hurting. The trick is not to overindulge and get back on track
as soon as possible.

Boo you are the captain of your ship, and I hope you have smooth sailing ahead!

I just wondered, are you stretching good before and after exercising? If not, that can cause your muscles to tear and feel worse. Stretching is a great warm up and a great cool down.

Take it slow, but keep on pushing.

hiya,
thanks for all the great advice. I have been stretching but i find it so painful i guess i have to admit i've been a bit lazy with it, it just struck me now (from your comment karen) the amount of stretching i used to do compared to recently.

I'II just concentrate more on swimming over the next few weeks and stretching also.

Gonna make a pact to eat better too.

The pma is coming back to me, thanks again.
