Ah, that would be lovely! Very lovely. Heh. Thank yooou! I will definitely keep this updated. With a smaller backside, oh, that's always a good goal! ;) Though, I imagine a backside is a lovely thing to have in the saddle. Ha!

[QUOTE=Pineapples;1327543]Oh, no, I was asking for you! Heh. That's the advice that comes to mind when I think 'desk job'; I remember that when my older sister was a secretary, she would take smoke breaks. So...you know, I just kind of translated it into 'walk breaks'. Is that not common these days?

...Haha! That's a really good idea. I do some editing from time to time, so at least I have that to put down. Maybe 'nanny' for being that for the younger sib's kids their whole life! Hah. Gotta say that heavy machinery experience sounds much more impressive![QUOTE]

Oh! Haha, yeah I can really, do anything I want to here! There are only 3 of us here working.

Yes! Nanny would be a great way to start. Even go as far as to put that as job experience! See if they would be willing to vouch for you. I have put down in previous jobs "Nelson Percheron Farms" lol That would be the family farm!

Losing weight is very hard to do - I struggle with it myself. I haven't read all the other posts, so I apologize if I repeat. Are there any barns near you? May I suggest finding a barn where you can volunteer at and take a walk around the pastures with the horses, or take a friend's horse for walks a couple times a week. It'll get ya movin and get motivated to hop on! You can even share some carrots and apples with them!!

Use everything that's stacked against you as motivation to be better! Good Luck - and don't give up!

Addedly, I have hypothyroidism - which makes you feel sluggish and it causes you to have a harder time losing weight - my insurance covers it, but it always says what the price of it is and the meds I am on are not expensive at all - check into it!

I lived in FL for 23 years and just moved in July. Would you be able to get medicaid? Also, how old are you are you? Over 18? Trying to think of some solutions to where you could get medical help for the asthma and weight loss =)

Because I could try running a little at a time, if it would help. One day, I really want to be able to run. Seems silly, but. But yeah, I think that once I get down a little it wouldn't be the end of the world -- it would depend on the horse, of course, but it would be great if I could! Heh. The holidays are always that way, though, from what I understand. So don't get too discouraged! 10lbs is not impossible to get off, especially if you're already down to 250 or so! I like stairs, myself. Kind of hard on the knees, but boy, it's kind of cool to get to the top of a multi-story building! Fainting or not. If I come across some money and I have dropped down under 300, I may find somebody around here who gives lessons if they want to let me on their horses/the horses can handle it. Reward every 10lb increment with a lesson, or something. Heh. Thank you so much for your response! And good luck.
I still don't run.. walking helps alot.. Im not a big runner, never was.. actually working with horse, mucking stalls, loading feed and such was a huge help in losing weight..just trying to stay active..doing what I can.. and cutting out pop altogether.. I cut out pop and didnt change my diet or much and lost 15 pounds in like 2 weeks.. seriously. Then I changed my diet and tried to lower sweets as much as possible.. Im not a fan of fruits and veggies, so I drink v8 and take a multivitamin.. I don't eat when stressed ( try not to anymore...lol) and I don't eat till Im full.. just by doing that I have dropped 8o pounds.. I don't go to the gym.. I don't work out at home regulary( except with the horses) and I walk alot probably 5 miles a day on average.. I started drinking pop over the holidays and the weight slowly started coming back on.. so im trying to cut it out again.. its harder to cut out pop than stop smoking I think

Hey, that's cool! Very awesome. Smaller workplaces are totally the best kind, haha. Oh man, though, it feels kinda like job experience ;) LOL, though! Hey, that totally works!

I've looked for barns around here; but real estate used to be crazy expensive down here and it's all built up! The closest barn is about ~45 away...not so sure. That would be really cool, though, heh. I do have a dog, though, so at least there's that!

Good luck to you, by the by! Oh man, I feel you on the hypothyroidism; thyroid issues run in my family, hypo and hyper, and it's not fun to deal with. I hope your meds work for you!

You moved a looong way away! Hah. Sunny CA as nice as 'sunny' FL? ;) I'm not sure about medicaid -- last I checked, no, but that may have changed. I'm 22, so aged out of the normal programs and somehow still young enough to be considered 'dependent' for tax purposes on my FAFSA! Yyyeah. I'm going to try and get to the clinic on Monday though, maybe they will be able to help.

Oh, I feel you! Last summer, I did the whole gardening thing, and outside work is really the most effective kind of exercise. No horses close enough, unfortunately, but I sure wouldn't even mind mucking stalls at this point. Heh. I've never been much of a soda drinker (I drink a pot of coffee a day and that's about it, haha), but when my doc told me to cut it out I did. My little sisters can down a twelve-pack in a day! THAT is scary. What kind of multivitamin do you take, if you don't mind me asking, and do you think it works for you? You sure do a lot of walking! Yipes. That's definitely good for you. Heh, though, any addiction can be really hard to quit -- you know, I don't even like little debbies, but if they're here I will destroy them -- but you can do it! Maybe try drinking cold green tea with honey? I've brewed a pitcher in a coffee pot before, added the honey (it takes a good bit) and chilled it and that was actually really refreshing.
