Been seeing a lot of posts to do with exercise and for those of us that can't it doesn't mean you can't lose weight if it isn't in your weight loss plan. I can't walk more that a few paces without pain and use a mobility scooter to get around. Stairs are impossible, so swimming, running, walking and gym are definitely out of the question. I need a right knee and left hip replacement so I literally don't have a leg to stand on. Ha ha. We don't have a shower and I can't get in the bath so it's wash downs in the kitchen. Two years ago I was working and walked everywhere, I had a lovely garden and enjoyed life and the exercise definitely kept some of the weight off although I was still overweight. Being disabled changes your life and for those that are in the same or similar position as me, don't give up! In the last 65 days I have lost 11/2 stones so even though it seems an impossible task it really isn't. I can't burn calories with exercise so I make up for that by eating less than someone who can. Simples.
