Hi there, would anyone like to make this a place where we can share ideas and our ups and downs with our weight control problems. I have been using the old 2012 version but I think we need to pull together and have some pretty good ideas when it comes to weight loss and various ways to exercise to help out one of our PD friends to give ideas on nutrition and different ideas to give enthusiasm and support so we all can be healthier.
I figure that I had better start it off. Around six months ago my doctor and I met and he refused to look at my knee because of my weight and limitations for an MRI and he gave me some tough love. He gave me three months of Adipex. I did well for a while then I plateaued. I went in about a month ago at weighed 347 lbs, only 6 pounds lighter. He told me that if I did not make some changes to my diet and exercise that he would not give me another prescription he gave me 90 days worth and said that if I didn't come back at least 30 pounds under that he would not write me a new script. I joined a gym and made changes to my diet. After 2 weeks I was down in the 330's. Then bad luck hit me in the form of pneumonia, the second time in three months. To make a long story shorter I went through rounds of testing and a hospital stay less than a month ago. I still have some kind of blockage in my right lung. Now they have me on oxygen that is supposed to be on me all of the time. I found it too hard to work with and at my place of work so I just take it off when were busy and use it when I need it. It is rough at work. Most of the time I am so tired from work that I will pass out in the chair. Monday I have to start getting serious and go to the gym if I am gonna make weight. I weighed myself in this morning and was disappointed when I had gained 2 pounds from last week. My doc did say 30 lbs but then said 40 or 50 is expected. The type of exercise is very limited with me having the lung issue. They want me to use oxygen even when I work out but that ain't happening unless I get trouble breathing. I am gonna have to go really slow so weight training will both be necessary and hopefully get me around the 300 lbs mark. I am going to try to start going 5 days a week an limiting my cardio until they figure out what is up with my lung.
Stuck in the high 320's, gotta hit the gym this month steady. Need to lose 15 pounds before seeing the doctor in April. Already taking Adipex. New psych doctor cut down my meds and said I should start dropping weight from that too.
