I am a 55 year old man who has struggled for the past 25 years to lose weight.
It started when I weighed 220 lbs. I tried different weight loss systems like weight watchers, nutra systems etc... only to lose a little, stop doin it and add on another 10 to 15 pounds each time.
I now weigh 335 lbs, am a diabetic with sleep apnea, replaced a bad knee two years ago and have constant lower back pain.
I need a plan and support to lose 130lbs. I know it will take more than ajusting my food intake... it'll take a complete plan. I'm not sure where to start however.
Response from Cindy:
You absolutely do need a plan, and to make yourself a priority. This is going to sound a little self-serving, but my recommendation is to contact a few personal trainers in your area and set up interviews.
You want to find one that you can relate to who will set up a plan for you, both for your nutritional needs and for exercise.
A good personal trainer is in business to do just what you need and will become someone you are accountable to who can provide the motivation to stick to your plan. He/she will also work with your doctor to be sure your plan is safe for you.
It sounds like you are a prime candidate for a heart attack and/or many more health problems for the rest of your life. But you can change that.
Just do it!
