I'm not really new here, been a member for awhile but haven't been on.
Here is my 'story'. I'll be 45 in a couple weeks. I weigh between 195-200, 5'8"
I have several 'obstacles' that I have/I am dealing with. I have mild scoliosis, arthritis in my neck, several 'sublexations' in my back, hip problems, I have fibro and underactive thyroid, had a TAH with vag. cuff mesh/bladder sling surgery this past Sept., which has thrown my body into chaos becuase of the fibro.
I've been going to the chiro for over a yr, am currently going to pt for pelvic floor issues. My pt says my muscles are angry.
I been on WW about 6x, SB several times, lose 5- 10, then for some reason, I either get scared or something, I'm not sure but I end up gaining it back. I've hovered around this weight for many yrs.
I joined a fitness center the beg. of this month but can't do any real exercise right now-pt's orders. I am doing Feldenkrais and will start a PiYo class on Monday. And I can walk.
I just tired. After the Feldenkrais class this past Thursday, my joints hurt, head to toe-no exageration.
I know that working out, taking these classes, will eventually strengthen my muscles to where my bones will be where they need to be but right now I just want to crawl in a hole and cry.
Oh, and I also work retail which means I'm on my feet 6-8 hours most days.
I don't know what 'diet' to follow. I like wholesome foods, I don't like art. sweeteners-gives me a headache.
I need advice, encouragement, a hug. yes, I'm whining, feelign sorry for myself whatever you want to call it and I know you've done that too.
so how do you deal with it all?
If you've got this far, thanks for 'listening' to me.
