I haven't been able to post or exercise or cook meals or...I'm sick. I have lupus and fibromyalgia and the fibromyalgia has flared up. I am in so much pain; it feels like every muscle in body is on fire. My sternum is so sore until it hurts to breathe. The thing is that I am supposed to move my body, but it hurts so bad. Not moving makes it hurt worse, but I'm exhausted. No one seems to understand, but I know I'm not the only one who suffers from these dreadful diseases.
I want my mommy - lol!!!
I plan to post as much as I am able. I will still weigh in on Monday even though I feel like I weigh a ton.

I am a vegetarian which usually surprises people, especially my family and friends, because I don't like veggies - can't eat most of them without gagging. But I can juice them and I do. I've been eating vegetarian for almost 2 years. When I started I lost 32 pounds in 6 weeks and I wasn't "dieting." I was eating vegan really. Then I re-introduced cheese, salt, and processed baked goods and the weight piled on.
Now I am going back to eating vegan, but slowly and eating according to Dr. Furhman's "Eat To Live" plan. I also suffer with fibromyalgia (the reason I stopped eating meat was to help me deal with my chronic pain) and am insulin resistent.
My grocery list for the week:
red kidney beans
brown rice pasta
fruit (whatever is in season)
various veggies for juicing
Kashi GoLean cereal
I eat locally grown produce and organic. I also drink alkaline pH balanced water so I like Fiji and SpringMountain in glass bottles. I have a very difficult time digesting wheat so if I eat pasta (when I eating right for me) I eat brown rice pasta or quinoa pasta.
I'll post later with my menu plan for the week.
