what is the worst thing about being obese?2 months


sweetfattie:
Good to know! Right now I can only swim in summer, can't afford a membership to a gym with an indoor pool. But if the yoga doesn't work maybe I'll try cooking at home more and use the money I save toward pool access.


Yoga certainly won't hurt! I've just started to do very simple yoga, to get more stretching in and try to improve my flexibility. I hurt my shoulder last year and want to try and improve my flexibility. Being a big fatty, it's already pretty limited, so I need to maintain whatever I can!

Hope you can get that blood pressure down without too much trouble. Watch out for the hidden salt/sodium in asian food, cause that won't help!

Sore ankles.

I have been lucky to avoid any knee pain, but lately my ankles and feet are always sore at the end of the day.

Not much I can do about it, since I won't be losing weight any time soon.

Finding clothes in my size I actually want to wear and body pain. Other then that being fat is great!!!


I agree! Have to shop online and it is hit or miss on sizes. Feet hurt if I'm on my feet too long. Legs ache more after walking.

My blood pressure is now in the high range, ugh. I plan to do more yoga

giantjay:
I don't know about yoga, but I cut a lot of salt out of my diet and started swimming 3 times a week. Even while gaining, my blood pressure improved.

(I have a great weakness for Asian food and so far cooking it myself hasn't worked out so well. smiley )


I was mediocre at cooking Asian food until I started using Jet Tila's cookbook, "101 Asian Dishes You Need to Cook Before You Die". It's incredibly well written, and targeted at amateurs. Almost everything I have made so far, others have thought came from a restaurant. It's less expensive than take out, etc too. 400 may come much faster for you.
