Thanks so much for the vote of confidence. I have battled obesity all of my adult life. I am from a family of "little people". The APAD causes the top of the stomach to produce hormones which cause obesity. At one point, I had dropped to 120 lbs. I did a 45 min, circuit training routine daily, walked at least 3 miles daily, and danced 4 - 5 hours a night EVERY Friday and every Saturday night, fast and non-stop, and in a short space of time had already gone back up to 160 lbs. even while maintaining extremely healthy eating habits. My doctor tells me that short of having the top of my stomach surgically removed, I will never be able to keep from being obese. It is a bit daunting. I do not want to go through surgery. Since the injury, I am unable to work out, or dance, or even go for a short walk, because I cannot trust my legs. I already eat healthy, I'm just not sure if anyone else might be in a similar situation, and have some other idea?

First off, Welcome aboard.

Second, Not sure what I can do to help. The challenges you face seem daunting, but this can be done. I don't know if you can get to a gym, but perhaps something like a recumbent bike can be an answer.

I have recently been told I have Antiphospholipid Antibody Disorder. Anyone who has this condition understands it results in major weight challenges. I do have four live children (ALL "Miracle babies" as it turns out) I battle with excruciatingly painful neoropathy in all extremities from a neck injury suffered in 2003. Have since also been diagnosed with Type II diabetes which I control with diet. I have three conditions which cause neuropathy, and I am unable to trust my legs since I cannot "feel" them except for the 24/7 pain.
Hopefully, someone here will have some great suggestions on dealing with the weight gain I am experiencing from the combination of conditions.
I already eat a very strict, healthy diet to keep the diabetes under control without meds, and when first diagnosed, I lost 50 lbs. All of which and then some has returned despite the healthy eating habits.
I appreciate help from experienced members.
