Frustrated about weight loss
Monday, March 10, 2008
I don't know what to do next. First priority, I think, is an overhaul of my eating. I am going to try having fruits and veggies being my main nutrition. No salt, sauces, additions.
I am exercising, doing my bike and weights. I am thinking of adding Gilad. I have Tai Chi. That does nothing for weight loss. I am doing it for two reasons. It is supposed to be the best exercise for preventing falls in older people. I don't want to end up like my mom, who falls, and is now in a wheel chair not because she cannot walk, but because she falls. She even fell and was trapped for 24 hours, wedged between the tub and toilet. I don't want to get to that point. I also do it for the stress reduction. With school and my ex, who actually lives in the garage (!!!), and a daughter with schizophrenia, and an income of $300 a month, I have more stress than the average person.
Sleep is still a huge problem. Because of my congestion I cannot use my mask for sleep apnea enough, and I am more than exhausted. I seriously cannot even remember what it feels like to not be so tired that I am dragging.
So lots of changes, trying to get my health right and my weight going consistently down.
