You can do this...and I disagree with your doctor. Anyone, medical issues or not, can lose weight if they want it bad enough. But ya gotta want it REAL BAD and ya gotta do it the right way. Get rid of a diet mindset that says "less is more"...not necessarily true. It is all about choices and how you cook, the ingredients you use etc;
Glad to hear you are ready to get on that bike and get some exercise in. That is key also! I will be 61 this month and I was 55 lbs over weight when I began my journey back in 2005. If I can do it so can you.
You've gots lots of stuff going on, but you must believe in yourself and get rid of any excuses! I will support and help any way that I can. Now I'm off to a funeral for a friend that didn't take care of himself...died at 64.

But doing well after a rough year. Dr.'s improved me with Rx and a pacemaker or sorts. I'm 70#s overweight.... just turned 60 and now ready to face the truth. Since I'm on Injectable insulin, my Dr says it will be very hard to loose weight... which is very true. I got a bike for Christmas and live in a riding friendly neighborhood. So excited about that... but if feels like starting over. I eat a healthy diet... but not good enough to loose the weight. One of the problems is that I live in New Orleans where food is King.... but I'm a great cook and would like to modify my dishes... my Dr says that I have "way" too many carbs... I tried Adkins... up and down 5 lbs x 2 months... gave up on that... but I did feel a lot better without carbs and my sugars were great. So... stuck there... I am looking for some support in a new direction... that is why I joined SparkPeople. Thanks for listening. :)
