    Exclamation How to lose weight

    Hello I’ve been trying to get healthy for my whole life I’m 20 years old female - 160 pounds 5ft. Last year I lost 40 pounds.I went from 190 pounds to 150. Around the time of august I got diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. I was wheelchair bound from July-November. My activity level went from 20 minutes runs and strength training to not working out at all and having to use a wheelchair to get around. It sent me down a cycle of bad habits I worked hard to get rid of and I gave up. Started binging and feel into depression. In November I was officially diagnosed and worked my way up to using a walker. My mobility still isn’t there. I can walk around my small home but going out to stores is a struggle. I was given a cardio plan to help my body adjust to postural changes. I’m now at 25 minutes on the bike at a moderate pace I have to keep my heart rate at (125 bpm). I’m walking around with the help of medication and exercise. I know weigh 160 and want to continue losing weight, given I have limited options for exercising/mobility for now. What can I do to lose weight. My biggest struggle is what I eat I’m still trying to kick the bad habit of eating of boredom, and staying consistent. I buy healthy food keep it in my house but then on the weekends I’ll either get takeout or eat ice cream and mess up. Any advice on shifting to a healthier mindset, losing weight? Thank you!

    Its really going to come down to willpower and how bad you want it. When I went through my weight loss period about 6 years ago I had to completely remove all high calorie unhealthy foods from my life completely. I didn't keep them in my house and I didn't go anywhere that I might be tempted to indulge in them. For just over 6 months I stayed on track until I finally hit my target. After that I was able to slowly introduce treats back into my diet, and now I am able to enjoy them quite frequently because of the amount of activity I get on a daily basis.

    I have a client who has now lost 80 pounds who doesn't even exercise at all outside of his daily walks, he's done it all by calorie control. So exercise is not a requirement to lose weight, sure its better if you can exercise for general health and well being, muscle retention, and for physique improvements, but as far as weight loss goes its not a requirement at all.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.
