I need to lose 25 pounds for bariatric surgery by Jan. 9, but I am in a chair. Can you help me? I've lost 26 pounds already but it took me three months.
Congratulations on your weight loss. Losing weight can be a challenge, so you should be commended for your hard work! I’d strongly recommend that you meet with a dietitian. He or she can work with you – and coordinate with your physician – to help you lose weight quickly, but safely. In addition, you might ask your physician for a referral to an exercise physiologist or physical therapist who can help you with exercises that you can do sitting in a chair, or perhaps tell you about other options that could work, too, such as water exercises.
