I have tried isagenix, I have done tons of diets in the past. But how do I really loose weight. At the end of the day everything hurts and my feet and ankles are swollen. I just don't seem to know the right way to get this damn weight off. I am frustrated and upset and at a loss. What do I do?????
I just read your blog, I hope you haven't given up on yourself1 It is hard & something we have to work at everyday of our lives. You can do it, this is the place to be for support & knowledge!
there is no "right way" to lose weight. you have to figure out what works for you--what you can live with. for some people that looks like completely changing the way they eat and adding in exercise. for others, it might look like exercising like mad but not changing the way they eat. for others, it might be a different combination. for me, it looks like: tracking every single thing that goes in my mouth and working out. and never thinking of this as a temporary fix. i try to live how i want to live at my goal weight.
i began at 284 pounds..... i am 156 yesterday. it can be done. it is just a matter of finding what works for you. 2358 days ago
Although I'm not sure that you are in a plateau, a lot of the tips that I've given in my "Stickie" on the Plateau Busters thread ( http://www.sparkpeople.com/my spark/groups_individual.asp?gid =11578 ) would work just for getting you started at losing weight.
Don't feel like you need to do everything, or to do everything at once. Over the months, I've added one or two new things to my strategy as I become comfortable with other things, and, I am, now, doing many of them on the list.
I'm not much for exercising, so that's one of my suggestions that I don't do much with.
Turn on sparks and follow the structure of their meals.. You don't have to use their suggestions but get each food group in recommended to each meal in a form from the same food family you do like...
I never used to be a big planner at 306lbs but when I found out I could have success coping suggestions and changing stuff I didn't like life got more interesting..
I also hurt all over my body and have a spinal injury that doesn't tolerate excess weight anymore.. I am now off pain pills..
Hang in there and don't give up..
