    Thanks Lynn ... I've signed back in to Spark after a long absence due mostly to health issues (I was diagnosed in March w/FM) and being extremely busy with keeping my granddaughter (10 mo old) full time. Currently I'm off of FM meds (until my doc appt this week) due to extremely high BP (now under control), so my symptoms are back in full force. I took Savella for 2 months and my FM symptoms were soooo much improved; but the meds didn't agree with my heart. I was having arythmias, which was my signal to get myself to the doctor.

    I really eat a pretty healthy diet. I don't exercise much lately due to severe FM; but I try. Unfortunately, BP and cholesterol problems run rampant in my family, and even with diet & exercise I tend to have problems with both.

    So, I'm getting a little exercise in small doses; but that's my biggest challenge.

    Hey there, welcome to Fibro Friends! Welcome back to Spark, it looks like you've been away for a while. You've joined an incredibly supportive team. We're here for your weight loss, fitness, motivation as we all live w/ FMS. Fibro does change losing weight & getting fit - but it doesn't stop us unless we let it. Even having a day full of obstacles & not letting it stop us the next day is progress. Make it a goal to make progress every day, even when all you do is 10 minutes of slow stretching in a couple 5 minute sessions. It will make so much difference.

    This forum, including the Reading Room, is full of fibro resources. Spark's tools are fantastic, I couldn't do this w/o the trackers. There's so much to learn, articles and slideshows & videos, including Coach Nicole's workout videos. The support is the best part & it's endless!

    Feel free to come introduce yourself at the team, we'd love to get to know you.

    Enjoy getting healthy & fit!

    Lynn, FF team co-leader emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
