I'm gonna start posting here for some support, cos I can't really get it anywhere else.
Anyway, just to fill in everyone here. I am 15, and paralyzed from the waist down. So losing weight is a little bit harder for me, because I cannot exercise properly like most able-bodied people can. But I am really trying.
Back in June(can't really remember the exact date), I was weight at my doctor's office(the only place i can be weighed), and I weight 203 lbs. Which I guess is ok, because I had been dieting like a nutter in hopes of reduced weight. Last time I was weighed it was 199, but I'm sure I had gained atleast 10-20 pounds afterwards, so 203 isn't so bad is it?
Anyway, I've really changed my lifestyles, because I am determined to become more healthy, and lose weight. One problem I really have is junk food. I thought that becoming vegetarian, would help me lose weight, and it has, but vegetarianism, doesn't rule out junk. And that's what I am having a hard time with. I've always had a hard time with that. I eat for emotional reasons, but haven't lately. I've been doing really well.
I've been exercising as well. Crunches(my version anyway), and I've bought 10 and 20 lb dumbells to work on my upperbody. I already really strong arms, because wheeling is my only form of transportation, but there's still some jiggle. It's not arm flab, it's kinda like firm flab. haha So I really wanna get rid of that, and become stronger, so that I can become more self-sufficient, and do more for myself.
Anyway, my goals for this week:
Crunches before I go to bed or while waiting - 5 days a week atleast
Dumbell workout - 6 days a week, and If I want, 7 days.
I really wanna workout with both of these all 7 days of the week, but those are the minimums.
Anyway, I apologize for my long post, but it was my first, and wanted to get all my info out there so you guys can help me hopefully.
