Does anyone else find they can't keep their weight under control. I gained 40 pounds in the first years of diagnosis, I have a lot of pain in my legs, but since have lost 20. Everyone says, "but you look so good" yea (for the ladies) anyone can shower and put makeup on and "look" normal, but is the weight thing just me or do other people gain as well. Is it from some of the meds Im on, I tried Atkins and after 3 days almost went down in the middle of the Pharmacy with light head etc. With fatigue, I need energy. Im not junk eater, drink losts of water, was swimming 3 times a week but ended up at the end of those days with more pain than not. Any suggestions on how to lose the last 20 and work my heart at the same time (remember my legs are in lots of pain) Any suggestions?

I'm interested to know how others...
