Just joined the group. I'm 560 pounds, and miserable. 6 feet tall and, very poor, movement walking. Trying to find a, calorie foundation. Some say, (Phone number can only be seen by MyObesityTeam users). Heck I don't know where to, start. Have, lost, so much from this., Sex, life, bad now. Still have good blood flow,but to much mass. Hurt bad, to the sleep. Need, some support and wisdom.
Just focus on one thing at a time like only drinking water. When you are doing good on that add something else like walking around the living room several times a day. I was 475 at my heaviest. I just started with little things. I stopped drinking soda and lost about 70 pounds in about 6 months. Good luck.
Hello, I know how you feel. Have you ever tried "My fitness pal " it's a pretty good site and very easy to use. I love it. Take care & try to stay positive.
Hello. Although I don't weigh as much as you I feel your pain and frustration. I noticed that since I started drinking alkaline water some of my clothes are too lose on me. The scale is showing that I am not losing weight but my clothes are falling off. Someone told me that fat shifts as well as when we lose fat we gain muscle. Maybe that's whats happening. But I want to see the numbers on the scale go down. I have issues with mobility, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, and so many more physical issues but I am determined to get this weight off. The most important thing though is learning how to eat healthy and letting it become a permanent lifestyle change. Counting calories is not my cup of tea. I would prefer to eat foods low in calories than to try to count calories and weighing food, etc... Be sure you you drink plenty of water and leave out juices, sodas, and foods containing lots of sugar.
Be encouraged and take it one day at a time.
Hi, I just want to give you a big hug. I hope you found some good answers but what I recommend is first going and getting a true physical and workup done and asking the doctor what he or she recommends. There are some free sites like myfitness pal that after you enter your weight they tell you how many calories to eat. you can also record your food on there.
I feel bad too I'm 300 pounds and 4 feet 11 inches tall. I wish my life was as well-rounded as my body. Anyway most of us use humor to help mask the pain I decided I am going to start writing a journal I haven't started yet and today I actually bought cake at the store go figure. I pink I have to treat myself like an alcoholic. And at least say sugar will kill me. This road is not easy you and I could talk online about it if you want to we could be pen pals
