Tehya Posted October 4, 2018 Report Share Posted October 4, 2018 I have always been the type of person so says "I got this" even when I have no clue as to how to do it or even start. I am not the type of person to ask for help - in an circumstance. Lately in life - like the last 3 years - I have really been needing to swallow my pride.... eh not quite the right word... stubbornness (there we go!) and have been asking for help with matters going on in my personal life. So now here I am, on this site AGAIN - I keep losing my way but keep coming back - trying to lose weight. Every time I come back I say "This time will be different. This time I am going to...." I can't do that any more. I have to make this time my final time. I have to stop looking at the end goal and getting frustrated that I am not getting there. I have to learn to nibble. I have come to realize that if I can't get my weight down by changing everything about me, then my next logical step will to be have surgery. I really don't want to go through that surgery alone, which is what it would be. That's a whole different thing I need to work on also. BUT anywho.... I am here in this thread to ask for help on the easiest ways to learn to change a diet and start exercising to lose weight. Simple most people say cut out the carbs, right? So no bread or pasta? lol I already have. It was a few years ago, the first time I joined this site actually, that I figured out - and I do mean I, not a doctor or any sort of medical testing - that I have a gluten intolerance. I can have one item per day that consists of anything with gluten or else 3 days later, I end up with a headache that lasts 3 days and nothing will touch. I have been tested for Celiac's but the test came back negative. I have no money for a gym membership or to buy weights of any sort so any time of workout has to be cardio or with body weight. So now the fun part - time to talk about me. Can't you hear the sarcasm in my writing? I am almost 41 - end of the month actually. I have pretty much .... no not pretty much, I have no one around me to support me on doing this so it will all be sure will power to get me to where I want to be. That's not something I am actually very good at so maybe someone can find it in their heart to help me accountable? I work in fast food - Not to ashamed to say that its not my dream job but I do love it. (Taco Bell) So I am around not really healthy food 5 days a week 10 hours per day. I have patella-femoral syndrome - something I call banana knee - in both knees. I have plantar fasciitis in both feet, but worse in my left one. I have had foot and knee surgeries. I most of my weight is carried around my stomach. I have "manly" legs because I have large thigh and calf muscles. (At one point I tried maxing out on a leg press and it was 400 pounds). ummmmmmmm .... yeah so that is me. Any one have thougths, suggestions, questions?
