I've had weight issues since I was in college.The "freshman fifteen" tuned into forty, fifty, and it went fron there. I was normal size up until then. I wore a size 6 dress to my high school prom. Now that I've been diagnosed with MS, I would like to try to get to a healthier weight, so I can be active for as long as possible.I would like to losse about a hundred pounds.I realize I didn't gain it overnight, and I won't lose it overnight either. Anybody have advice that has tried a specialized "MS" diet? I can't have nutrasweet, and have had digestive issues with splenda., so I can't eliminate sugar, but am trying to cut down on it.My two downfalls are sweets and anything containing cream cheese.I'm also not much of a meat eater.Not sure I could financially do the "no meat at all"thing.,plus I really LIKE bacon!:)! I can excercise, but vertigo and gait problems are my main symptoms, and I've had knee surgery/knee dislocation issues since I was a kid. So, brisk walking/running or anything requiring really great balance is out of the question.Can do exercise bike,though.Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks-Amy
