I lost a lot of weight but not because of exercise - I don't do anywhere near as much as is normally recommended because of skeletal issues - and fatigue.
I did this basically with nutrition. I weigh all of my food and enter it into the Nutrition Tracker. This is an amazing little tool because it gives us sooo much power. It gives us the power to tweak our intake as and when needed to ensure that we get a healthy balance of fats/carbs/protein - it gives us the power to tweak to ensure that we stay within our range MOST of the time - and it gives us the power to get to our weight goal!
Because of your health issues it is vitally important that you eat well - poor nutrition choices does NOT give us the energy and often causes us to be more hungry, therefore eating more - usually garbage.
As far as exercise is concerned, I just got a 22 minute walk in by putting some of my groceries and my laundry away one at a time! This is actually the BULK of my exercise - It is great because if pain or fatigue set in I can sit and do the rest later. t is great because I don't suffer the jolting/jarring that I would get from walking outside, or suffer the environmental issues that cause me to have an asthma attack. I don't have to suffer the sun - I can't take it :-( It is also great because it not only doesn't SEEM like exercise, it also doesn't seem like work, so for me that is a win/win situation.
You can do this but you must have faith in yourself! The rest will follow!
