Eacersize advise needed.
I need to walk. I want to walk so that I can loose this massive weight for me. There's one problem. I have heel spurs and Artheritis in my spine that makes it really difficult to walk sometimes. I'm on pain medication because the pain is so bad sometimes I can't even hold myself up. Any suggestions what I can do so I can loose this weight?

Weight training will give you better results than walking. You'll burn calories, build muscle, and increase your resting metabolic rate.

eat healthier
excersize and healthy eating goes together. You really cannot do one without the other. I know. I used to be 222 pounds, and it is hard when you have medical conditions, like mine, Thyroid and heart palpitaions, ... to excersize.... lose weight.. and keep it off.

I lost 60 pounds in a year by occassional excersize and eating healthy.

I have some tips..

The thing is... if your overweight and you find excersize difficult, the first key is to lose weight before you try to do any kind of excersize.

What I mean by this is, when I was heavier, It was hard for me to excersize at all. So I tried a different method. I began to lose weight by simply eating a healthier one.

Cut out fast food! Big no no. That may be harsh, but Fast food is my enemy. I had lost 60 pounds, 15 of it, was from stopping the fast food. It's hard. But I found that if I did it "slowly" it ended up working to my advantage.

Let me say this first... after I lost the weight, I went back to eating fast food to test my therory... for a year.. Only occassional .occassional... i mean 1 or 2 times a month..... I ate fast food... BAD IDEA... just during the first 6 months I gained 15 pounds back. then I gained another 15 pounds by the second end of the year... That is HALF of what I lost to begin with.

Now I am back on my regular diet, because I cannot stand what happend...

Anyways... I finally cut out fast food completely... It it seems hard.. here is how I did it..

May help.

I started out, by eating only chicken sandwhich meals... then I cut out the fries. Then I cut out the Caffien... and only drank sprite.... After a while I was able to cut out Fast food completely. I even got to where if I "smelled" it.. it was no longer "appealing". Then I cut out "cokes."

That is the next step. Cut out caffeinated drinks period. This alone.. could help you lose 10 more pounds.

After you have done all of this.... you might have lost 25 pounds. Which is a good start. Eat home cooked meals and fruits and vegetables.

After that, You should be able to move a lot better. IF your able to do so, you can slowly work your way into walking off that excess weight.

But whatever you chose to do, as far as excersize, changing your diet to this or something simular, will definately tremendously help in the long run.

And never lose faith in yourself!..

Hope this helps. :)
