Here is a study I ran across. I'm not sure if I agree with it because I'm not sure if the weigh gain and lack of exercise is a cause or result of the fibro. In my own case I know for a fact that I was much more active and weighed a lot less before the diagnosis than after.

The description in this research doesn't fit me. Before FM I walked anywhere from 2 to 14 miles at least five times a week. Just about 6 months before FM hit me like a ton of bricks I had hiked across the Grand Canyon. For those of you who don't know, my hiking trip included an approximate 14 mile hike the first day (North Rim to Phantom Ranch near the Colorado River), a short hike the second day, and a 10 mile hike (from Phantom Ranch out to South Rim). I also did a bit of weight training. I won't try to tell anyone I was the most fit person in the world prior to FM and I had a bit of extra weight but I don't think I'd have been considered obese then and I was quite active. So I don't know about this one..................

I agree with you guys. I had some extra weight but not a lot and I was sooooo much more active way back when. Since then, I hardly have any activity at all.

I was super active, and in the military prior. I was not overweight. I gained 75 pounds in two months in 2008 because of meds... Since then, I have lost it, and I'm less than ten pounds over weight now. I feel worse now, than I did when I was obese!

I, too, was always active and had maybe a bit more weight but I'd had a baby. I was always thin and very active. I gained more weight from meds since having fibro than I did with any of my pregnancies. I lost a lot but now being switched to another medication, I'm on my way up again. Oh how I hate this! I did leave my opinion at that website about the study. Maybe you all should, too.

Leave opinions on the study itself that we werent part of or just what you think about the article? I guess I should read it to see what you are talking about.

Personally, I think that if you are going to research something like fibro, then all the researchers should have it, so they have personal experience. I say forget the study> JoElaine
