Any way you can move will burn calories. The old "trick" is burning more than you eat (or drink). Because your exercise would be uncommon, it will be hard to tell how many calories you are burning. However if your weight is stable and you measure your intake at your current activity level you are burning about as mush as you are eating. So if you can increase your activity level and decrease a little on calories you should start loosing weight.

As you loose weight you may reach a plateau where you stop loosing. That is good. If you are not down to the weight you want to be, you need to tweak you activity to intake ratio again and see where that takes you.

Wishing you the best!

I'm 47 and live in Illinois! I'm about 50 lbs overweight and I need to lose not only for myself but for those who have to transfer me to the bathtub, car, and so on. You see, I was born without arms and only partial legs. Therefore, exercise is difficult for me. I quit drinking pop a month ago. I'm trying to drink more water, but I don't think Im losing much weight. My disability, has made it difficult to get a blood pressure reading, but I'm almost positive it is high. Looking for suggestions and support!

Stay Positive!
