I had to buy jeans sometime in June. I get my jeans a bit loose and made of the semi-stretch stuff because I have edema (swelling) issues. On June 28th, I was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia and they gave me a muscle relaxer to help me sleep- which is the first line of battle in coping with fibro. In the course of sleeping more (not perfect, but way better than before), I’ve started to feel better, having more good days than bad days. And in sleeping better, I’ve started to lose weight. I’m still not exercising in any real sense, but I’m doing more day-to-day stuff and this is a start!
I noticed my stats showed that my photo is on a Japanese site as an explanation for edema. This photo is NOT a representation of what edema IS or what it DOES. This is just showing the weight I seemed to have lost since late May/early June.

Today we’re celebrating reaching 500 members in the We’re Here! group by copycatting the iPhoneography shots of our 500th member, kimbermudez. Since it’s iPhoneography, the image was shot and processed entirely on my iPhone 5. Also, since i’m doing Dr. Oz’s two-week rapid weight-loss plan right now, copying the image below using a cracker that i can’t eat right now seemed especially appropriate.
Damn Triscuit. I do love hummus, i do love hummus, i do love hummus…
