Health issues and losing weight

Red2502Red2502 Member Posts: 9 Member Member Posts: 9 Member
Hi guys
I'm a 40 something lady with various health issues but wanting to lose the weight I gained since getting ill...
I need some motivation, I struggle with exercise because of spinal problems but have started the gym, food is sometimes an issue as I crave sweet stuff when the pain hits badly but trying to use distractions...
I was due to have gastric surgery in March but Covid!!!
So still waiting on that and trying to stay motivated in the meantime
Hit me up if you think you could help me and I will gladly help you

    What gastric surgery are you doing? I know they have started back up in my part of the country. I had a gastric sleeve 6 years ago.

    I’m here to motivate! I had gastric bypass RNY in November 2002. I started at 320 my lowest was 161 in 2017 when I regained some after all these years but hit it hard when I got married. I’ve since gained some back and am currently 188! Regain is possible especially when you’ve been lost op this long! I wish I had someone to motivate and encourage me back then. My goal again is 160. I’m 45 now and want to get rid of this lose skin and get a mommy makeover
