Hi incredible people
Loving all the inspiration this forum holds - truly beautiful! I've been on a weight loss journey for a while but never seem to progress on the scales.
I've always been quite active, always involved in sport - did representative athletics for 15 years so fitness was always a priority! Because of this i assume i have a fair bit of muscle. I'm only 22 so still have youth on my side
My problem is since about march i got pretty ill and thought it would pass but it didn't
as time went on the doctors started to look into whatever my condition was and just found a few weeks ago that i have a heart condition (way to complex for me to explain). But firstly my resting pulse is super high at 111 bpm, when i do minimal activity (even small things like brush my hair) i faint - I've never experienced anything so debilitating before
Anyway in addition to this the doctor asked me to weigh in and height and all that and i'm 165cm and weigh 85kg (Clothing size 12) i've always known I'm overweight but i don't really feel it? Medically they want me to lose 20kg which i don't mind but i don't really know how - normally i'd just up my exercise but with my current condition i have no clue what to do!!
I don't eat the best but since june i've definitely upped my healthy eating and started on vitamins to assist... still (i know i havn't been exercising) but my weight never seems to move! I drop centimeters rather easily but the measurements don't help when the doctor weighs me? If you know what i mean?
Do i ignore what they are asking of me and keep my thoughts focused on the measurements over the scales? And if anyone has any suggestions for exercise (i try to push myself to do a 20 minute walk daily accompanied by someone for safety incase of fainting) i am alll eyes
Thanks in advance!
