I am a 44 year old woman that struggles with losing weight because of health issues. I am missing a bone in my lower back and I have a bad heart...therefore I can't do a lot of exercising. If my heart rate goes up...my heart stops. Plus with my back, it could go out at any time. 8 years ago I was put on a lot of different medication that caused me to gain quite a bit of weight. When the scales hit 230 pounds...I threw them away. Got disgusted with myself and continued to gain. Slowly I started exercising, but started passing out. The doctors thought at first it was diabetes and changed my diet, but that still didn't help. I did lose weight, but just a small amount. Later I would find out about my heart. I can do light exercising and I watch what I eat...I count calories and that seems to work for me. Over the past 8 years I've dropped down to 145 pounds, but would still like to drop 20-25 more. I've hit a plateau and can't seem to get past it. I thought this would be a great place to come to get the support to keep trying and not give up.
