hi everyone i hope you are all okay!
been struggling with my appearance lately in terms of weight wise. i tried on some jeans that fit me at the start of the year but now cant get them past my thighs. felt pretty deflated because when they did fit they were baggy!!
i know we’ve all put on a little weight because of lockdown etc but i’d been exercising near enough every day during lockdown and going on lots of walks and i just feel that it’s all been for nothing
i try to do exercises on the floor and in my own house as i cant afford to go to the gym regularly and my joints can’t handle running or cycling outside etc. i focus on legs, arms and abs but sometimes have to adjust the exercises to my ability so that i can do them, as some are quite difficult and i don’t want to put strain on my joints.
i was thinking i may have gained weight due to my medication but i’ve been on my current medication for a while and it’s been fine. no changes or increases of dosages etc etc.
i was wondering what i could do to lose weight as i find it so difficult to get motivated when i’m having a flare up or feeling fatigued. it’s so annoying wanting to be slimmer yet your body doesn’t want you to exercise, and even when it does it’s not for long. i want to start going back swimming (i have just had some tattoos done so i am waiting for them to heal) and i’ve started doing 30-40 mins exercise on my fitness mat every other day.
i don’t have the best diet as i’m a fussy eater however i am trying to cut down on the fast food. i drink lots of water and have a lot of fruit.
does anyone have any tips on how to lose some weight? i wouldn’t say i have put on a lot however it’s just upsetting for me knowing i could fit into those jeans at one point and now i can’t. i feel so insecure and ugly
