Hey everyone,
I go by "Rhinoh" , longingly given to me by my Husband. 

I don't really know where to start so I'll just start from the beginning.

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in April 2020 , due to this I am on medication that puts on weight as well as making me feel super hungry. Only thing is, I crave the bad stuff & we live a chilled lifestyle so most often we'd have take out 3x weekly (or more, yes really). Obviously this has added to my weight issues. 

I have physiotherapy for my knees currently but I do need to strengthen my shoulders & arms too. 

I find it hard to fit time in because I'm at work from 9:00am - 5:30pm , with 2 15 min breaks and a 30 min lunch.
After I tidy & wash up, rest for a few hours because I am exhausted then bed. I feel like I have no energy even though I work (from home) in a call centre (it's mentally draining) . 

I wish to loose weight but I have no motivation due to pain & Depression (most often because of my Fibro - I start thinking badly about it) . So I am hoping someway of loosing weight that is 
Manageable, 'Easy', simple to follow and fun.

A good first step might be to work on eating foods that are going to fill you up more, lean protein and veggies, and some  whole carbs (baked potato vs. fries)
