Weight loss also?

Now that I have ILD interstitial lung disease from the SS my lung dr. wants me to lose 20 lbs as soon as possible. I also am supposed to have knee replacement therapy but need to lose 50 lbs before that can take place. Losing weight has become my main obsession and I have had to resort to getting 1000 calorie meals from a group that makes the food and offers weight loss exercise. The meals are great and I have lost 8 lbs in 1 and 1/2 weeks.

I can't cook and can't shop due to degenerative disc disease so this has been my last resort to get the meals I need. SS can wreck you in so many ways. I am dismayed to find myself in this state and I feel upset with myself for letting things get to this point. I am still doing the imaginary thinking that tells me that things will magically get better when I feel better - tomorrow maybe... I need to concentrate on this weight loss thing because otherwise I ignore the realities and live in the land of nod, hoping I won't REALLY have to deal with all of this. Reality is scary and things can get away from you so fast.


Well done so far! It's great that even though you can't exercise, and can't get out for shopping regularly, you're still making this effort and losing weight! Hopefully that first 8lbs will give you the incentive to keep going. Keep us posted...
