You have my deepest understanding, for 5 years it has been an uphill battle for me as well.
But, stay positive and believe what your doctors say about not overdoing it, I started with chair exercises first, still cannot do some exercises, like sit ups or severe leg lifts.
I do walk every day and wear a pedometer and do 10000 steps a day even if I have to walk around the block a few times to complete them.
Moderate weights I use a spinGym for arm exercises and silly as it looks it works, like playing a kids game.
I am still under doctors care and have to stay within distance to a ladies room, but, I am not
a quitter, and I am losing, slow, but losing.
Each time I weigh myself I remind myself I did not gain it one day and cannot lose it in one, so
for today, just for today I will stay focused on diet and exercise and be proud of doing it, tomorrow will bring another day to succeed, each one bringing me closer to losing and firming, oh by the way I am 66 and proud.
Watch what you eat, log and check your log, refer to it when you are having a bad day and see what could be causing you to spend time away from what you would rather be doing.
Best of Luck!!!
