Finally signed up for the forum.
I started my journey in January when I finally decided enough was enough. I've struggled with weight gain, fear of exercise due to it triggering major fibromyalgia flare-ups, and being tired of the fibro ruling my life.
After reading "Wheat Belly" I cut wheat from my diet as am experiment and started to feel better. A couple weeks later found Primal and started studying up. I promptly cut sugars and the rest of the grains from my diet and started seeing a personal trainer once a week who also believes in primal.
Progress report so far:
I haven't had a muscle relaxer in 4 months, except for 2 days for a small issue that popped up in my hip, not bad since I've been on them daily for 6 years or so. I've been completely off my neurontin for 3 months from 5 a day for 5 years, and I haven't had a fibro flare-up in months.
I'm doing TRX, walking, couch to 5k, and lifting weights. I'm currently doing 80lb lat pull downs, 250lb leg presses, 120 lb dead lifts, and bench presses. Definitely not bad since 6 months ago I couldn't ride my exercise bike 5 minutes without going into spams for 3-4 hours!
I'm down 40ish pounds.
I have gone from being terrified to exercise to wishing I could go to the gym and lift everyday. I love feeling myself get stronger and healthier!
