Help/Suggestions/Support on losing weight as a couple
It has been months since my last post. The last time I was here, I had just had my tonsils out and was recovering from surgery. Here is where I am at now:
Instead of getting back into exercise, I have done nothing. Well, nothing but gain another 6kgs :'( I feel like a total failure, as now I am the good part of 116kg. I don't know what I expected, like you eat too much and do no exercise, you gain weight, its a no brainer. I know I shouldnt make excuses, but I have had further ill health, especially where my lady parts are concerned, the doctor thought I had a miscarriage and the jury is still out on that, I have had tonnes of tests, etc. Basically stress, poor diet, poor time management as a result of being over worked, ill health and no time to exercise has led me to this. I am so utterly ashamed.
So my doctor came to me and told me that I have elevated cholesterol. I know this is a pre-cursor to cardiovascualr disease. He wanted to put me on medication, but is giving me a chance to lower it through diet and lifestyle choices, however my lifestyle isnt going to change until the new year, when I wont be so strapped for time. I am currently doing University and Vocational Training full time, I am in my final year of both. I dont even have time to work, I have so much work to do that I cant even squeeze in time to get a job, hence the lack of money. To say I am living below the poverty line would be an understatement.
Next year, things are going to change for me and my partner. We will be finished our education and will be out earning serious money. He too, has a weight problem. He weighs about 150kg, and we both have a lot of weight to lose. I am so excited, because he wants to lose weight with me, he wants to do this journey together. We can do it!
I know there is no time like the present, but at this point in time, we cannot dedicate time every day to a fitness routine, however that will all change next year. What I am asking for is some suggestions on how we can do this together, given how much weight we have to lose. We dont really drink soft drink, we limit our takeaway to once a week, and we try to eat fairly well; I think we just eat too much and dont exercise, plus both of us have high stress situations at the moment.
