I recently asked on Facebook what my friends best weight loss tip was. Most of the responses were serious (though some said things like DQ)! On response has really gotten me thinking.... Weights.
Ok, here is the deal. I love weights but first of all.... can I do things like squats, lunges, Pilate's instead?
Second, they are nearly impossible for me. As explained at the bottom of my blog I have serious health problems and disabilities. I could lift with my right arm but not my left... will that help anything? Really, to do weights I need to join a gym and get a trainer. There is one about 45 minutes away but no babysitting (I think they have it for older kids....) . So, I would have to get a separate babysitter. That is a huge commitment. Especially when $ is tight.
I know the benefit of weights. I lifted a lot in HS and loved the muscle tone and definition I had then. I am sure I could get some of that back, but it is hard to realise that no matter what I do, I will never really be able to get that fully functional body back!
I have thoughts that I could trade babysitting with a friend to go to the gym... maybe I could win the lottery and get my own weightroom and a personal trainer to come every day or two and help me do the weights....
Any suggestions would be grately appreciated!
