It Ain’t Easy Being Lean

How’s this for an instant block to weigh loss – it’s not easy being lean.

 “We don’t know if  fibromyalgia causes weight gain or vice versa.” … “Fibromyalgia patients have a 25% lower metabolism, on average, than someone without fibromyalgia of the same age and body weight”.

Now I kinda feel I got around this with the changes I made with food choices (no sugar, carbs or dairy) but what I didn’t account for was impending grief, stress and depression.

It’s a god damn formula, a balancing act to get this right and we all know from my track record of accidents that I have absolutely no balance whatsoever.

I’m tired this week, my body is aching and the food plan is practically non-existent, comfort foods have found their way back into my home.

All that hard work I put in to lose 30lbs in the last year or so has practically reversed itself since I’ve regained half of that weight back!!!

Yes, you have guess it I’m having a poor me day today, the pounding headache doesn’t help either.

So, does that mean I’m giving up?  Hey Gail, great minds want to know.

Absolutely not.

This just means I am going to start back at a deficit weight point but the glass is still half full, I didn’t gain back 30, I gained back 15.

I just have to wait for this wave of pain, depression, grief, stress and worry to pass over – ironically Passover is just around the corner.

When life knocks you down, get back up and fight harder.


I used to have a t-shirt that said I’m a lover not a fighter but the truth is…I’m a fighter, I don’t take no for an answer and I absolutely never give up.

I might never win with the “weight loss game” but I’m going to keep trying to find something that works for me both for the loss and pain management.

On a positive note, the show ideas are flowing – I’m excited about getting things ready to launch.

My dog Tiger is going for dental surgery this week, he has an abscess and he needs an extraction, I’m hoping all will go well.  I’m very anxious about it!!

Please keep my puppy in your prayers xoxo #doglove
