I have to get healthy

Sunday, February 10, 2013

About a month ago I went to the hospital with low blood pressure . I stayed 2 days and got a ekg, echo, and a cardio done. I still havent got any answers I cant get the hospital to send my test results to the doctor I choose to go to or to give it to me.

I weight 251 lbs almost my highest weight ever. I have to figure out how to lose weight without doing exercise until I can get cleared from my doctor. When I much moving my blood pressure goes way down.

I have to figure out how to have enough will power to not let my family sabotage my eating habits . My husband is horrible about trying to force me to eat food that isnt the best for me . So starting today I'm going to do what I need to to get health even if it doesnt make him happy.

    You can do it! It will be harder without your family supporting you but you can get support from us here on SP!

BTW, I have the same problem as you - low blood pressure - very low resting pulse. Go to the hospital and sign a release form or ask for a physical copy of your test results. This is what I had to do. They cannot refuse to give you a copy.

For most people losing weight is about 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. I remember my first WW instructor telling us that you'll still lose weight and reach your goal without exercise, however with exercise you'll feel better and be more toned, and lose more quickly.

Maybe try doing small things like short walks if you can, or some chair exercises...just a little something until you can find out what's going on medically and be cleared to do more.

Good luck!

    I understand the challenge that lack of support for eating changes in the home create. Almost like the other doesn't want any changes. You can work through it, just harder.
