This is my first time posting and I'm not really sure if I am doing it right, but wanted to give it a try. I have been encouraged by reading the journal entries of others. Last week was a big wake-up call for me. I received a call with the results of my bone density and was told that at age 50 I now have osteoporosis. My goal now is to definately incorporate more weight bearing exercises into my daily lifestyle.
When they told me that I should start taking Fosamax for my bones, I started to panic. I have been told that I should not eat chocolate, caffeine or cinnamon when on this drug. Well, you guessed it - I immediately wanted to eat chocolate!! Challenge or not, I had to go to the store and buy my favorite peanut butter M&M's, consuming much more than I should have!! This was not a very good start to the week - hopefully next week will be better.
