A very blunt relative of mine once told me , "Somoca, you didn't GAIN that weight in a month-why do you think it will vanish in a month..lol" I say that to say, Be patient and stick with it. If you stay with it, you will see the results.

My dr. to set realistic goals dont say I need to lose 100 pounds,say I need to lose 10 pounds,It makes it so much easier to do it that way.After that 10 is gone then you work on the next 10 until you have reached your goal.I no it works because I have had to do it.Now have to start over because of problems that caused me to gain most of it back.

You might want to check your local PBS TV station. Many
PBS stations off a program called Sit And Be Fit. Its basically
chair exercises. PBS also offers the programs for home use.

I have decreased mobility and cannot do weight bearing exercise right now (a bum knee). I use an exercise cycle that is just the foot part of the cycle. You can do armchair exercises (google that), and you can walk around in the house. If you watch tv, walk around inside the house: use a walker is you have trouble standing for long. I thought there was nothing I could do, but there is!

weight loss is a very difficult thing at times. you mustn't get discouraged. Since you have limited mobility I would check out websites that talk about exercise for people with your type of problem. in order to lose weight you have to burn more than you take in. at least this is what they tell me. I am having a problem with weight rightnow myself. and can olny say that it is possible to lose the weight. i may never obtain my goal of 180 lbs but I'll keep trying. recently i gained 21 lbs so i know how much of a pain in the butt this can be.
best of luck

Keep a daily log of what foods you eat. Write down everything you eat and drink.
Keep a physical activity log recording how many minutes you exercise a day.
Exercise in moderation if you are just beginning.
Make an effort to discuss your feelings, challenges, and successes at your support group or with your doctor.
Learn relaxation techniques.
Drink at least six 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Drink low-calorie beverages.
Avoid alcohol.
Stop smoking.
