Donno what to do
Fri, 08-31-2012 - 1:12pm

I am a 33 year old mom of 3. I am 210lbs at 5'5". I've been trying to loose 70lbs for 2 years now. I have tried eating healthy, I've tried portion control, counting calories, I've joined a gym. I have to force myself to eat most days, because I just don't get hungry and often I forget to eat at all. More often then not, I only eat one meal a day and it isn't much to eat, only a dessert plate of food that I usually don't finish. At the moment I can't do much in the way of exercise because I am in a cast, my Achilles tendon is tearing away from my heel bone, so I am limited in what I can do.  I am becoming very depressed about the whole thing, not being able to exercise the way I want to, and the fact that I'm not eating much but still can't loose weight. I've talked to friends, family and my doctor about it, but nothing seems to work as of yet. My doctor says that once I get my foot back to good, and am able to go for walks and move more that it shouldn't be a problem, but even before I got injured I wasn't seeing much progress when I was walking 4km everyday. I donno what to do anymore..

Talk to your dr. again about exercises you can do around your injury. Or ask for a recommendation for a physical therapist that can help.
If you find youself not eating much, make sure that you are eating the right things!
Most important, don't give up! You can do it.

Hey, you kind of sounds like same problem I have in so many words. I weigh 181 and I have a chronic back problem and don't want to make it worst, I am one that has to watch what I eat and exercise but how can I do that if I hurt?? I have a sit down job so doesn't help.. I know how you feel it sucks, makes you feel sad, disgusting, and so miserable not sure if you feel these things? I have been with my man 3 years and know I should feel comfortable getting naked but the jokes that he thinks are funny makes me wanna keep my clothes on.. You would think that moms that take care of 3 kids would be fit and skinny but NOT!! I am at lost too!!!
