recently i've looked at some before/after pics and it is pretty demoralizing to me. when i was in shape i would say i was a good looking guy, but now i almost wanna say i look like a slob.
before i gained all this weight(i went from about 170 to 260-270) i didnt really eat healthy but i would play DDR ALL THE TIME and i also joined the military, but in military i got hurt and started to gain some weight. im now out and trying to lose all this weight i've gained since i been out for 3+ years. i am getting 40% disability and really have no idea how much that hinders me for working out. i had surgery on my right wrist to get a cyst out, i got it out but im pretty sure they messed up something because i have this nice scar and a recurring cyst along with noticable pain in the wrist. i have onsgood slaughters in my left knee, and problems with ankles.
NOW with all that said, i dont want that to be some kind of cop out, i just wanted to state that for maybe some guidance on what should be good for ME to do.
now i never liked running but i used to be able to at least do it if i had to. but now running just feels impossible for me it hurts in more than 1 way, and honeslty i've never had to go through this much "pain" while excercising. i think the main thing for me is how demoralizing it is to struggle so much trying to do any kind of excercise. i recently bought ddr to try to slowly get back into shape and i get tired so quick its almost pathetic, and i used to play on the hardest difficulty while doing 2 pads at once.
sorry for all that ranting but just had to get that off my chest. so BASICALLY im just wanting some advice on how to deal with pain and frustration of feeling like i cant do anything when i work out. also some advice on dieting too would help greatly. basically i just need a "how to lose weight for dummies" since this is basically all new to me.
