Hi All, I am 5'9" weighing in at 17 stone. I was finding it really hard to walk (suspected sciatica) arthritis in my knees, hips 2 discs slightly bulged but not pressing on the sciatic nerve which is a good result. The doctors told me to take part in Aqua fit (well any exercise in the water) as this takes the pressure off my joints. I started this over a year ago and have built myself up. Now I speed walk for 3 miles which takes me 50mins, Monday consists of 16 lengths breaststroke, Aqua fit 45mins and Pilates 45mins. Tuesday currently a rest day although sometimes I do the speed walk. Wednesday back to the pool. Thursday consists of 45mins Legs, Bums and Tums an hour break and return for another 45mins for light to medium aerobic exercise called smooth movers. I try and fit in 2 long walks between 8-10 miles a week.
I know it may seem a lot of exercise and I do my best but I am struggling with getting the weight off, I have lost some inches but the weight is the same???
In need of some inspiration!!!
