My 30th birthday is in 6.5 weeks. I would like to lose a good amount of weight by then, but my overall weightloss goal is about 70lbs.
My biggest obstacles right now are:
--I work the night shift, so my sleep is either sparse or too much.
--I have arthritis in my lower back
so I have to stop workouts before I want to. Or it stops me from working out in the first place. My doctor has also advised me not to do certain exercises.
-- Food! I'm a single person household, so groceries go to waste ($). I have been ordering Factor, but it's expensive so I don't order a lot. I'm also kind of a picky eater so a lot of the suggested health foods/drinks I don't like.. I've been told I need to eat MORE calories throughout the day which is very hard for me. I usually only eat one meal a day (if that).
--Motivation. I have things to motivate me mentally. Like I know what my motivators are. But physically getting up and going to the gym is a struggle.. I would rather sleep. Lol.
--Also, since right before I turned 18, I have been struggling with urinary urgency (not frequency, not incontinence- just urgency) and no doctor has been able to figure out why, or what might help it. So getting outside for a walk where there are no bathrooms gets to me mentally. Or going out in public in general, when I don't know the bathroom situation.. I hate being at the gym, being sweaty and having to go to the bathroom. So when I'm having bad days with the urgency, its just another excuse to not go to the gym that day...
Any input, advice or questions, are welcome!
