I'm Nikki. I went from a 00- to a 10 in less than a few months when my docs put my through a ton of tests and heart meds. I'm off the heart meds now, but still taking steroids for my lungs. I'm having a hard time loosing weight because i'm having a ton- and i mean a ton of stomach issues at the moment. I started a thread about it. http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96131
Up until this past week, my doctors wouldn't allow me to exercise any at all while they were doing tests on me. It's frusterating because i gained sooo much weight in only a few months between the different meds and wasn't allowed to work out at the time. I used to be a real exercise freak (track, x-country, dance, soccer, color guard, cheerleading..you name it, i did it). Even when i graduated high school i still stuck to my exercise routines at college and ate healthy(seemingly healthy). I haven't drank soft drinks in over 8yrs...i quit when i was younger for track. I do drink tea occassionally, and as far as food goes- right now i'm trying to find stuff that doesn't make me sick (newly diagnosed as lactose intolerant w/ a glutin allergy..plus some other stomach issues). Well, now that i've been given the ok to go back to the gym, i'm finding it hard to get back in a routine. I know everything i need to do- i was addicted to the gym for years lol....but it's just a matter of getting up and going- i feel sooo fat at the moment... I guess what i'm going to do is just get up tomorrow and go to the gym. I will make myself go, because motivation comes later on when you're in a routine and feeling the benifits of your workouts. I'll put it this way- i went from a double 0 to a 10 in a matter of not even 6 months from all the meds....so i have a wee bit of weight to loose
. I'm really glad you created this thread. It's nice to have support and know i'm not the only one. Ya'll please "make" me go to the gym tomorrow. I'm going to make myself because i want to loose weight, but i also really need some support right now.
