Hi I'm new here and I really want to loose weight but I'm finding it so hard. I'm 23 and have been in a wheelchair for 2 years after suffering a brain injury. Before my brain injury I swam daily and went to the gym 4 times a week I was also a nurse so had an active job. Now I can't stand, walk, or self propel because I have no functional use of my legs or left arm. I'm also steroid dependent because I have chronic lung disease. So I spend all day being inactive apart from weights with my right arm. I am struggling so much to loose weight everything I do fails I'm so down about everything and I think if I lost weight I'd be happy. Has anyone else successfully lost weight while not being able to exercise? Thank you for reading
