Physical activity when in pain

For those that suffer pain while walking or even just standing, what have you found that works to get exercise? I can only walk short distances before I suffer severe pain due to OA in my knees. I am not sure whether or not knee replacement is an option I want

I need help making a meal plan to lose 30-40 pounds.

I need help making a meal plan to lose 30-40 pounds.

Hi, I'm 39 years old and am having a lot of trouble losing weight. I need help making a meal plan that will help me lose 30-40 pounds, and I don't really care how boring it is, and the more specific it is the better (time to eat, exact quantities etc). I don't know if I should go to a dietician or if someone here can help me with a plan or point me in the right direction.

Also, I can prepare food while I am at home, but when I am at work I can not prepare food… read more

How do I stop emotional eating?

How do I stop emotional eating?

I eat when I am bored, I eat when I am tired, I eat when I am frustrated. I am constantly eating for reasons other than hunger. How do I stop? It's like it just slips under my radar and next thing I know, I have polished off a whole pie, or cookies or bag of potato chips.

How do you encourage/motivate yourself to try again?

How do you encourage/motivate yourself to try again?

I was doing so well with my weight loss. Actually loss 40+ pounds with nothing but the gym and food regulation. Then a series of events took place that made it impossible to continue my three day a week routine. Yes my family makes sure that I have a car available on Tuesdays and Thursdays but what they don't understand is that because those are the only days I have the car, all of my appointments etc must be scheduled on those days so I can't get back to… read more

Dismissive doctors?

Dismissive doctors?

Today was the 7th anniversary of me and my husband's first date. It would have gone really well, except for my arthritis. I've been in pain all day. Nothing seems to touch it. I've asked my doctor for help, and all I got was "Lose weight". Has anyone else been dismissed when they bring things like this up at the doctor's? What did you do?

What Can I Do to Overcome Eating Out of Boredom?

What Can I Do to Overcome Eating Out of Boredom?

I am an emotional eater. It's part of the way I was raised, and whenever I feel happy or sad, I seem to turn to food. Sometimes I feel the need to eat when I'm bored. I can have just finished a meal and then 15 minutes later, I'll feel the need to eat more.

I'm trying to lose the weight and hate feeling the strong desire/craving for food. I don't even care what I eat, lettuce or pasta, I just feel the need to be constantly eating. It's not a craving for any… read more

Hyperthyroidism and Obesity

Hyperthyroidism and Obesity

Hello,

I suffer from Hyperthyroidism (Graves Disease) and Anemia. I've also been diagnosed with a few mental illnesses about a year and a half ago and have been taking Citalopram and Lamotrigine for those issues. I've noticed a significant amount of weight gain during the first six months of taking these medications. I had thought it was because of the medications that I was gaining but decided to do a little test and got off of them. I had gone to the gym, ate a plant-based diet and… read more

I find myself not going anywhere because I'll be the fattest person in the room

I find myself not going anywhere because I'll be the fattest person in the room

It's been a long time since I have seen someone as large as me in the same room. Lots of times I will just stay at home because I'll be the only fat person in the restaurant and I feel ashamed to order food.
