    boy were you guys right. sugar definitely affects FMS.

    a while back i posted and mentioned i was going to cut sugar out of my diet. the result: i lost 3lbs. the first week, 2 lbs. the second week, and 1 lb the third week. no loss the 4th week but i also had pms. i had more energy than I knew what to do with, and had absolutely no "little black rain cloud" following me around.

    december rolled around, with all of the holiday goodies, and i fell back into old habits. i'm totally exhausted and can't seem to accomplish anything, and I've gained 2 pounds back. Ughhhh!!!!

    it's a new year, and i'm back to no sugar starting tomorrow. also made a resolution to take better care of myself and be more proactive with my FM. my endocrinologist recommended a new rheumy for me to check out. she's a woman and has many, many FM patients. hopefully will see her within the month.

    i feel so blessed to have all of you here to share with and learn from. thank you for listening.
    happy 2003,
