Weight loss Struggle Before Wedding 1
I had a baby not long ago, ended my pregnancy at 230 pounds Smiley sad


Wedding is in july, and I have about 11 more pounds to my goal.
Meal prepping, Diet, and Exercise.There are no magic pills, no lazy short cuts (I've tried)Spin Class, Walking, Stairs, Berberine, Low Calories, Water, Meal Replacement shakes.Discipline, Dedication. Not Giving Up Weight loss has been slow verrrry slow, literally like 0.4 loss every week to every other week. Insulin resistance is a biaaaatch and I know many brides feel my pain especially if you have kids and any other underlining issues.Weight loss Struggle Before Wedding 2

    I feel this sooooo much right now!! I鈥檓 trying to drop weight and get healthier after 2 years of surgery, being on a walker then crutches, relearning to walk, physical therapy... it鈥檚 been a long hard road. And now, unfortunately, I will never be able to run, jump, skip, or do lunges or squats, or anything weight loading on my hips. I can鈥檛 even walk more than a mile without being in pain for the next 2-3 days. It鈥檚 so frustrating trying to find ways to lose weight and tone up without ANY of the basics that trainers and doctors tell you to do. Not giving up though! Where there is a will there鈥檚 a way!! 馃挭馃徎

    3 healthy kids, blood disorder, thyroid problem, and super low blood pressure. Not to mention my love for food 馃槀. I am very short too, so the more weight I gained, the shorter I look. I gained about 20lbs in 6 weeks visiting my hometown 馃, then I lost all of it within 2-3 month with just floor exercises, intermittent diet, and now just cutting my portion smaller. Loosing weight is very challenging when there with underlying problems. Dizzy, nausea, lost balance, etc. But it won鈥檛 stop me. I strongly believe if I don鈥檛 challenge myself, my health will be only worse. It鈥檚 not the numbers on my scale that scares me, but the number on my lab work 馃ぃ

    This gives me so much hope!! I had blood clots in my leg and both my lungs after surgery- it took a long time to even be able to walk across the room without being out of breath. I鈥檝e been working on my diet, but really need some cardio! And some way to tone my lower body without screwing up my hip. My legs and tush are really starting to show the muscle loss... and it ain鈥檛 pretty!

    I'm confident you can reach your goal in time. I don't have much knowledge about insulin resistance. I do know that for the average person, weigjt losd is 75 to 80% of ehst you eat and only 20 to 25% of the exercise

    Insulin resistance, pcos, cushing's syndrome,
    Pretty much your body doesn't process insulin like it should.
    Makes it harder for the body to lose weight, metabolism is way off, hormones are all over the place.

    I鈥檓 sorry for what you鈥檝e gone through! It sounds like you鈥檙e very strong. Have you tried yoga? YouTube yoga with Adrienne for beginners is great for recovery for many injuries!

    I鈥檝e never tried yoga! I鈥檝e been interested in it for a long time, but it doesn鈥檛 look like I can do hardly any of the poses with my hip (nearly zero flexibility in the right one post surgery, and moving it past its limit will cause tears & the need for either another surgery to attempt to repair it or a complete hip replacement 馃槶). I went from a very healthy, active, fit person to a nearly motionless blob post surgery. I鈥檓 not even allowed to swim or cross my legs at this point. It鈥檚 super frustrating. I will totally check out the video though! Who knows, maybe there are a couple things I鈥檒l actually be able to do! 馃馃徎 Every little bit helps!

    Yes. Less carbs too. And less cholesterol. Reading all the nutrition facts makes me feel frustrated sometimes 馃槅 I was so much fitter when I was pregnant than now. Now I just want firmness and fitness back. Weight loss Struggle Before Wedding 4
    This was 9 years ago (31 weeks pregnant with my 3rd). 2-3x gym a week. Now, only floor exercise and bit weight lift 2x a week. I barely notice any difference on my muscle. Do you think I need more protein? I did hear about the protein shakes, but afraid if they have any side effects?
