Weight loss with the 21 Day Fix

Losing weight while battling chronic pain seems nearly impossible. I’m so limited in what I can do. Even walking… I can only walk 1/2 mile because of arthritis in my knee and bursitis in my hip. Then the SI joint pain from Ankylosing Spondylitis. And on top of all that there’s the muscle pain and fatigue from Fibromyalgia. I’ve gained 70 lbs in 3 years. BUT I’m fighting back. Just completed week 2 of the 21 Day Fix. I’ve lost 9 lbs and 11 inches. I’m so proud of myself. It’s sure not easy…



the thing i don’t get about the supposed argument against fibromyalgia being seen as a physical illness is that, even if it somehow was a mental illness - like, even if the massive amount of research showing it’s physical was discredited - how does that somehow make it less…

Never thought of it that way before

It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.
