Yes, it is possible to lose weight even on meds that are required to get us through having fibro. I gained 60 pounds when I got fibro. It took me 3 years to gain this weight. This past winter, I was diagnosed with pre or boarderline diabetes. I had sat on my painful rear for 3yrs and kept eating whatever I wanted. It was a comfort for me....or so I thought.
When my doctor told me I might have Type 2 diabetes. I decided to change my life. This was on April 19th, 2010. I joined a doctor run wellness program on that day and began my journey. The program is called "New You." I walk now, and eat tons of fruits and veggies. I have lost 34 pounds since that day back in April.
I can't say that my pain is any better from all this, but it sure is no worse. I just plain feel better about
myself, which is huge for us with fibro. It takes a mind set to do this, but it can be done.
I'm sorry you are in so much pain. I hope you get relief soon.
