You are not being honest. You are being mean to yourself. And it sounds like your mother's voice is still in your head. A loving mom doesn't call her daughter fat. It sounds like you have had a lot of problems. Have you considered counseling or been screened for depression?

thanks for the nice words. I just put down the words that other people was thinking. I know what they are thinking for I have been around this kind of thing all my life. I was told this all the time from the time I was 6 yrs old to 35 yrs old. Now my new husband he doesn't say anything unless I ask him so I know he just doesn't care. About Family, Honey, I don't have any, so I don't know what they would say except when my mom was alive and she would tell me that I am fat! She was always honest with me about the way I looked. that was the way my mom was so I now look in the mirror and can see that I am FAT! OLD! & USELESS! for I can't work anymore due to all of my illness the doctors and government put me out to pasture 4 yrs ago. So I am honest with myself. Someone has to be!

Thanks everyone for the advise. I did go to my primary doctor and he gave me a script that stated that I can exercise as long as I have some one with me that is watching me. I gave that to the organization and they are happy. So I have a friend that is going with me & enjoying free exercising except these last 2 weeks I have been fighting Acute bronchitis. I can't seem to win when it comes to my health. Oh! About that other doctor, I am going to a specialist in St. Louis that does nothing but research on sleeping sickness so I am hoping he can help me. I know that some thing has to give for I am about to get to the end of my rope. I am trying my best to not get depressed & that is hard. I can't seem to win. I am always being diagnosis with something new when I think I am getting better. I wish I could go back when I was healthy and able to be fit and slim and not worry about my weight. Not the way I am now. OLD -- FAT -- USELESS!!

A doctor would not tell you not to exercise unless it is serious. I would take his advice. If it's a life an death situation i would pick life.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I would get a second opinion. Exercise, especially walking, is one of the best things you can do when you have COPD. Is this a family doctor or a pulmonologist? Pulmonary rehabilitation is strongly suggested for people with COPD. This is a program that combines education and exercise. The exercise portion is overseen by a respiratory therapist who is there to help you learn how to exercise and how to breathe. Please be proactive is persuing this. I also have severe COPD and am fortunate to have a great pulmonary doctor. He is the one who referred me to the rehab program and continues to help me be as "healthy" as I can be. After a lot of hard work, I no longer qualify for a lung transplant as my COPD has improved. Still severe, but better. Good luck with this. Feel free to message me if you'd like more information.

This is just a shot in the dark, but I think what I would do in this situation is something like this:

Find a personal trainer (or something like that) who is up to speed on full-spectrum health: mind, body, and nutrition. Do a consultation and ask for a recommendation of either a physician or what kind of physician to look for.

Then, going to the new physician, there would be a proposed plan of action from the trainer. Basically, "this is what I want to do, how do I get from here to there?"

I think a typical fitness program would be out of the question. I would expect a really gentle start would be in order, with lots of specific watching for how problems might change.

Then please get a 2nd opinion. It is very very rare for a doctor to not give the thumbs up for at least SOME activity, especially for vague reasons like "you'll get too tired."

Thanks but I can't do it by not eating. I am a person that gains weight when I just sit around. I was 130 lbs in 2008 then I had to have 4 major surgeries and gain BIG! Now I need to move and Doc doesn't want me to.

Get a second opinion and focus on your eating habits.

You could get a 2nd opinion. I can't believe that a doctor wouldn't clear you for ANY kind of exercise whatsoever.

Fortunately, weight loss is primarily achieved through diet, so you don't need to exercise at all to lose weight.

Help! I have a chance to exercise with a trainer for free but my doctor is totally against me doing any kind of exercise. He just wants me to sit at home and sleep. I have COPD, Arthritis, & Idiopathic Hypersomia (Sleep a lot). He is afraid that I will make myself to tired and might have a COPD attack and not be able to live through it. I think he is wrong but what can I do. I need to loose weight for sitting around is what got me up to this obese weight. What can I do? HELP!
