This is my 5th day of being on this forum. I know it's early on in my journey but I feel I've hit a real low point.
Yesterday I found out I have some sort of problem with my lungs - not sure what yet as I have to go for some more tests. This explains the breathlessness and dizzy spells I have had over the past 2 years that I had put down to being lazy and unfit! This news came as a big shock as I have never smoked a cigarette in my life and have no family history of any lung conditions. So I'm feeling quite worried and down about this.
I've been advised not to do any vigorous exercise for the time being and as I usually like to hit exercise hard and go for it with my workouts I'm now not sure what to do. Just climbing the stairs leaves me struggling for breath and I now realise this is down to my health problems, not just because I'm unfit
Anyway I'm loving reading all the helpful posts on here! Especially the daily diary, it has given me loads of ideas and inspiration! I'd love to take part in posting on the daily diary but I struggle to plan what I'm eating. I feel like this is limiting how well I can do as I spend so much time looking in my fridge and grabbing the quickest (certainly not the healthiest) meal I can find.
Any tips or advice anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
