Hi! I am new to this site and would like to have some help in how to lose weight. I have joined weight watchers for the 100th (lol) time. When I follow it it works but I have a disability that prevents me from doing any excersing. I have spinal issues and have had 3 major surgeries. So if anyone out therre can give me some advice on how to excerse or how to keep motivated it would be appreciated.

I would also like to get a conversation going with someone who might understand .

Thanks for listening or should I say reading.

You have disabilities so it is best to see your Dr. and ask for
a referral to a therapist that can help you with an exercise
program which would meet your personal needs. I am a type2,
with an amputation. I now have a prosthetic leg. My Dr. and
therapist help me locate an exercise machine that works well
for me. I was also taught to use stretch bands and hand weights properly. I was at that time put on a program of daily exercise which works very well for me. I am evaluated twice
a year and adjustments are made to the program that I follow.
Good luck.

Thank you for your advice, I am seeing my Dr soon and I will ask. I remember when I was doing P.T I used stretch bands and hand weights. If you have any advice about exercise or anything else please feel free to contact me.
