Hard not impossible: Work with your doctor on this a slowly progressive walking program while carefully disciplining your calorie intake will help the fibro and the weight don't just sit around worrying about your pain if cleared by your doctor get up and do and increase your activity very slowly.

Agree. Would also focus on getting adequate good quality sleep, which can help with weight loss as well as fibromyalgia.
