I need some help and motivation! I'm currently at my heaviest weight ever in my life (173.5 kg) which is a hell of a lot. I am 48 years old soon to be 49 next month. And I can feel this extra weight in my lower back and I can just about walk a short distance to the shops but I have to stop every few minutes due to back pain and being out of breathe.
At the moment I am recovering from a knee injury (fractured patella) and I find it very difficult to do any exercise even walking which I know would be good for me. I used to play badminton three times a week to now sofa surfing literally all day. I'm very much lacking motivation to do anything apart from eating about 3 to 4 thousand calories a day. (maybe it's a lot more than that but I'm scared to check properly).
I need some words of wisdom from you good people on health unlocked. My so called friend's words of wisdom was that I was fat b.... d and grossly overweight and I need to pull myself together and get it sorted. Maybe she is right but it was not necessarily the right way to tell me to sort myself out.
Can you good folk offer me some advice to help me lose some weight and get back into a healthy way of life? I am due to walk my daughter down the aisle next month. Now I know I won't be able to get to my ideal weight by that time but I want to be able to walk her down the aisle with out gasping for breath and in steady state. Can you help me? Kind regards Rich
