Welcome on board Dolly.
If you're looking for motivation, you've come to the right place.
Weight loss is a challenge for most of us and we each have our own unique circumstances to cope with.
Having a medical condition is among the hardest of those circumstances to work around, but even those are not usually insurmountable - just unique and a little more difficult.
The key is to manipulate what we eat, how much we eat and how much and what type of exercise we do to suit our individual circumstances. For example, if we can't exercise enough, we need to cut down on how much we eat or the types of foods we eat. If we can't modify our diets, we need to exercise more.
It's about finding the right balance for us.
The hardest thing, but one of the most important things is to be consistent and keep going, which is where the motivation comes into it.
By sharing our ups and downs with others, by reminding ourselves that we are not alone and by relying on others for advice and support we can all achieve our weight loss goals.
To help with my motivation, I've found it useful making a pledge to do something positive in the pledge section of this forum and I find it motivational when others have lost some weight and register it in the weekly weigh in section.
Perhaps you'll find these motivational too!
Whatever works for you, I look forward to hearing about all your triumphs and helping where possible.
