I have tried dieting and exercise for a long time, it seems not much has worked for me. I have dropped the weight but it comes right back up again. I am really bothered by the way it looks on me and the way I feel. Easily winded and always tired, I don't look forward to another round with P90x or even a slow bout of yoga. I have tried dieting but it seems all the things I adore have to be cut out of my intake and I don't think that half of the ones out there are healthy. Cutting calories down to 900 a day, not ever touching carbs, fat free, sugar free, liquid only.... it all just rubs me the wrong way.
I am not a heavy smoker by any means and I rarely drink. My BMI is a whopping 35 and is only going up. I want to be able to do the things that everyone else can do and I want to look the way I feel. I have always wanted to climb a mountain or go on a hike, however with my current BMI and weight, I can't. I get tired and light headed and my whole body feels like it's on fire.
I know this may seem like a drastic step for only being 185lbs,(however I am only 5'1) but I am going to talk to my doctor about gastric bypass or Lapbands. All my friends think I'm crazy but I feel so unhealthy. I feel like something is so wrong that it cannot be corrected without other assistance. This will be a starting step towards a bigger life change.
