Hello, I'm a new to site and have a dilemma. I know I need and want to loose some weight for health resson. I have advanced arthritis in the spine and knees and severe 'brittle' asthma. I'm just two weeks out of hospital after yet another life threatening attack. Mobility due to pain and breathlessness make it very difficult to walk (up until about two yrs ago I was able to do 3 or 4 miles no prob. I'm on loads of medication (weight gain potential (steroid..being one) I eat very healthy. My calculations say I need 1800 Cals per to loose (13st -. 5'4 age 58) and then 10k steps lol I can barely make it prob bedroom to kitchen and use a stick out doors.
I'm feeling sooooo frustrated and wondering do I just ignore it all for now...but my recent brush with resus in a & e in last 2wks all I want to do is live a full a live as possible and enjoy my grand children. I'm being sent for pulmonary rehab at the hospital shortly.
Do I just wait or has anyone any suggestions? Sorry it's bit long but everyone seems so supportive here witH no judgements being made.
