ABOUT ME:

I just turned 50 on Jan 10 and have been diagnosed with RA.  Started taking predisone which didn't work except make me gain weight,  so the dr put me on Methotrexate (10 pills every Sunday) in which it wasn't helping either.  I then started taking Enbrel injections weekly along with 4 methotrexates.  I need to lose around 77 lbs to get to my goal weight.  I sit at work so I don't get very much movement in during the week days.  Actually, I don't exercise at all due to the pain from the RA. I'm the type that I need to have direction as far as planned menus of what I should eat daily or I go right back to eating whatever I can get my hands on fast and easy.
