I'll take it... Rheumy says to lose 10% of body weight - 21 pounds. He doesn't rant or rave (sitting on his skinny little stool in his skinny little self!). He doesn't say that I should be Twiggy thin. He doesn't say I'm squishy yucky.

He is nice and matter-of-fact. Try losing weight to see if the inflammation goes down. Lord knows not much else is helping at the moment.

OK. I'll take it... The advice, the attitude, the gentleness, the care. And I'll do what I can between now and my next check up in 6 months.

Please, God. Help me remember this!!!

    You can do this! It sounds like more than it is. Just take it a pound at a time. I highly recommend using the food entry and trying to meet all of the nutrients. it really helped me! Also, if you aren't exercising try the 10 minutes at a time...it works! Good luck! You can show the skinny little man just what the rest of us can do!

    YOU CAN DO THIS...one pound at a time. Listen to Dorothy about the processed foods and sugars. Set small goals and don't try to do it all at once. 4-5 pounds a month is plenty to try to lose.
    Start by cutting out processed foods first...it's so worth it!If you can do some organic foods too that's even better. Even if you only lose 10-15 pounds in 6 months...you've still gotten a long ways to your goal! Don't give up...we're here for you!

    Have you tried removing sugars and all processed foods? That is what I did and found that my lupus does not act as bad when I stay away from them.
