Welcome to the group! There are so many supportive and wonderful people here!!
Even with obstacles you can lose the weight! I suffer from depression, anxiety and fibromyalgia, just to name a few. I have commited myself to losing the weight which will hopefully help alleviate some of my troubles!
Many of use know the disgusted feeling we can get from being bigger than we want, thought we were, etc. The good news is, you can do something about it.
For starters, find an app that you can log your exercise, food and water intake in. That will greatly help you see how much you are taking in. Make sure you weight and measure everything you put in your mouth! (I use My Fitness Pal and you can access it online or on your phone.)
Coming here is also a great way to find support, get answers to questions, and just feel better about yourself and your journey!
If you can get out and walk with your son every day, that will help you feel better. I'm not sure how difficult this is with all you have going on physically, but even if it is only 10 minutes to start it is something.
On days when I am feeling really depressed, I still make myself get in at least a walk. At the end of it, I feel so much better!
Start making healthy choices in your eating habits. Switch to drinking only water or no calorie teas.
You CAN do this! And you have a great group here that will be behind you every step of the way!
So no more excuses! We look forward to seeing your successes, and supporting you through your set backs.
