    Default What would you recommend? Re- Exercise..

    Hi all, just after some suggestions/advice really...

    I have always been heavy, have PCOS and a few injuries that hinder me.. I have bursitis in both shoulders, discs that bulge to the sides in my lower back. I have broken my foot and done my ligaments in, my achilles on my left foot is extremely painful (thanks to my double storey place, this isn't improving).. Doing stuff hurts.

    I have put on some weight since my Mum passed away 6 months ago. This needs to come off but I just don't know where to start. Depression and anxiety don't help.

    My diet is good, could be better though I guess. I am a huge vegetable fan and eat mainly them along with lean meats, eggs, low carb type foods...

    Walking long distances kills my foot, swimming is hard with my 2 year old. I don't want to ask the kids Dad for help either..

    I welcome any suggestions, I am so over who I am, over feeling tired and basically looking hideous.

    In all honesty, you're best off asking a physio. They are experts in human movement and can tell you what you should avoid and what is ok to do. When you're armed with that information you could join a gym (if possible) and seek further assistance from a personal trainer on technique.

    Well, now that is very sensible! I never actually thought of asking a physio.. Thanks for that, I will definitely see one!

    Goto a physio! I got a pt and they were pushing me way too hard. Yes I need lose weight but after two close pregnancies I didn't realise how much I damaged my body!

    He said rest, light exercise not even walking!!! I have a bung foot. Stuffed knee and buggered knee muscle 😂 I goto physio every week! Love it I do Pilates too. Do you have phi? Xx

    No phi here unfortunately.. Have considered it, but being on my own with the kids leaves me with no $$$ ever to pay for it.. I have damaged myself so much. 4 c-sections have left me a mess. Particularly the last one that is still giving me grief 2 years on... Am liking the physio suggestions..

    I also have bulging discs in my lower back, had to have surgery when DS was only 1 month old in which they have damaged the nerve which causes constant pain in my legs & feet, it was recommended to me to use a Sun Ancon chi machine which I have found helps.

    Good luck

    Gp for advice and maybe medications, physio for physical advice and dietician for nutritional advice more specific for pcos. Do you see an endocrinologist for your pcos?

    Wow, I'd never heard of those machines before, just looked it up. They look really good!! Might see if I can hire one closeby, it says I can hire in Hobart but there's no harm in trying to find one in Sydney Thanks!

    I am going to make an appointment with my GP for next tuesday so I can see about possibly getting started on anti-d's or anxiety meds to see if that helps.. A dietician would be good, I know I eat healthily but it may not be the right stuff.. I saw an endo years ago. Since having the kids I have let my health slip so bad. I just never seem to have time and then I cannot stand taking all my kids to appointments, especially if it's to do with sensitive issues..

    Thank you, there is some good advice there
