You are going to do great! And I am sure that you will find that the stronger you get, the more energy you will have and that will relate into moving more and just feeling better!

RE: Newbie with health concerns
Update...two weeks and down 5 pounds. Seems like a lot. I also notice on my MFP that i have teouble now with the calorie intake. I run a deficit. Working on the protein too and getting better. I think just because i am making healthier choices that have less calories. I am not going hungry. I have three meals and at least two snacks.
Also strugfle with getting my regular workout in due to headaches. Hard to get a routine going when you miss a few days each week.

Great job! Remember, that initial weight loss is mostly water, so don't expect it to keep up at the same rate. You should continue to see a loss, but perhaps not as rapid a drop in the future. Great job working on getting in that protein. That is what will help to keep you feeling fuller longer and also help you to maintain your muscle mass while eating at a deficit.

RE: Newbie with health concerns
Startedto add my stationary bike today. Just ten minutes to start. Slowly building up more reps on bands too.
Question..anything to help with the digestion slowing down from increased protein intake? Or could it be the whey protein shakes! Probiotics are so expensive!

Your body will get used to that (it's the protein shakes) - I used to have issues but my body is now more used to them.

Yep^^ The body will acclimate with time, but in the meantime, also make sure you are getting in plenty of fiber and water. Fruits, veggies, beans, lentils.... all will help things move along.

Oh, and great job building up the exercise!

I am a 55 yr old stay at home wife. I have not worked in over ten years due to health problems. Nothing diagnosed specifically but just a crappy quality of life! Started in the 80's with a case of mono followed by the then new disease of chronic fatigue syndrome. Add to that migraines, insomnia, muscle weakness and a few other things and you have a not very active life. I have maintained weight (230lb..5'8") for about 3 yrs now after a loss of 15lbs from counting calories.
I started MFP a few days ago and thats where i learned of your group.
I have not seen much info on the strength training part of this. My concern is i need to start slow. I have a resistance chair that i began using again and doing some simple exercises for my back.
I really could use some guidance getting started. Reset or not? Thank you.

Hi there "Mama!" When I read your intro, I had to reply as our stories are SO similar. Me: Aged 56, 5'10, 230 lbs., chronic fatique and pain issues (adrenal burnout), had mono in the 80s, stay at homer... kinda freaky isn't it? happy

I'm just getting back into trying to get some of this weight off as well and, like you again, just KNEW that there had to be a better way than life-long starvation to get and keep the weight off. (I just can't do the restrictive dieting anymore. Maybe because I've done that for 4 decades and am my fattest??) I too am starting off slowly - hopefully we can both pull ourselves out of this pit.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you're not alone in your struggle. This seems like a wonderful place to be and I'm rooting for you!
