I will start out by saying that web MD is one of the best websites I have found for weight loss. And i have been to quite a few.
I am at the heaviest I have ever been right now in my life and if i could do it over I think i would pick a way younger age to be over weight then now at my life when things are slowing down and my health is at a rapid downward spiral. I have not been heavy all my life and was very active up until 8 years ago when i had to retire from nursing do to a herniated disk in my back and 2 back surgery's. I have had some major health issues the last 2 years that have really been a bummer. I have had some upper and lower back problems bulging disks and stenois and arthritis in my back and knee.
I have chronic pain and a very bad back and knee. Its hard to get motivated to do any walking or exercising. I am 293 lbs and 59 years old. My doc wants me to start out slow and work up. Which is why I am here to get your support and help. Because most of you if not all of you know what i am going though just to take one day at a time. I really need to lose the weight for my health to feel better.
I am going to give this my all and try to succeed with some weight loss this time. So I will say please have patients with be and just be in my corner when i need help and motivation. And i will do the same for you:) View Thread
