I would like to begin by saying that I think that all bodies and body types are unique and are absolutely fabulous. But we have conditions that can cause unhealthy weights which can lead to all kinds of disease and loss. If you are comfortable in your body and have no Health issues then more power to you! You go!
After my bipolar II diagnosis I was put on Array of medicines which all caused rapid weight gain for me. Under 4-5 weeks I gained about 45lbs. or 30kg.
I couldn’t where my clothes, I was/am so ashamed, I feel like the skum off the heart, (Again just speaking from how I felt and what my body needed) So these are my feelings that I put on no one else. This is just me. I can’t live my normal life at this weight and the weight off course damages my heart more which damages my lungs more.
So it’s on Donkey Kong!! I can do this
Scale is moving in right directions ands measurements are going down. I am trying to kick butt to get healthy!!
I am no longer taking those meds as they made me to sick, I am now testing others. It’s been a battle to say the least. I am working on the mental but I want my body back too.
I love to train strength and be active and it is hard, BUT I will not give up.
Small rules that might thelp (sounds simple but very effective)
1. Don’t be hard on yourself in the beginning because yes THIS IS THE BEGINNINIG. More to come as you grow.
2. Work -out as much as you can, even a round off of the couch is something. Then later as you get stonger you can get it on with the gym or outdoor training. But break day of strolls are allowed if not abused.
Watch over – snacking and mishaps. Always plan ahead.
Smoothies and snacks are good before/and after training, or breakfast or when you are on the run.I love smoothies
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Nothing worse that getting injured.
Don’t worry about the others around you, really they don’t care and you are not at there level, nor are you there to make friends.
Some people log there work out. I do this at home but some do it at gym to make sure nothing gets missed.
Last tip – If you really don’t want to go to gym and work get dressed and go, you will be surprised to see what happens=)
LAST THING – The kitchen makes the body, NOT THE GYM alone.
Keep it simple stupid. Don’t go out too hard in the begining and expect miracles but if you stick with it over time you will see results.
Personally I am all vegan for so many reasons and you can be to. There are many documenatries I will paste a few. Just give it a watch. Very interesting.
Email or discuss with me on blog /email if you need tips.
Just a reminder I have trained all of my life but I am no professional. Take what you need and leave the rest at the door.
We can do this, we dererve this!!
Thanks for Reading my blog. Have a fabulous Tuesday!!
