Weight gain since being disabled
Hi every one I used to be a size 12/14 and weighed 12 stone now I weigh just over 16 stone and I’m like a size 18/20 . My medication is a huge reason to my massive weight gain . I have such a hunger I never had before plus I don’t get any exercise because of my illness . I know there must be other people like my self who have had a weight gain due to disability I put all this weight on since being on quatiapine so since feb this year .
I recently down loaded a app called nutra check where I can monitor how many Calories are in what I’m eating so has my partner so he can help me monitor what I eat as I mainly eat snacks he prepares my main meals as I can’t prepare meals I snack so I will put snacks into Daily calorie Snack boxes to monitor what I’m eating . My memory isn’t so good so I will need help so my partner will help me with it . I’m determined to loose some weight and manage my weight. I was wondering if any one else has any weight loss ideas . As going to a gym is not some thing I can do And I have this massive hunger for snacks .
Who else has found a increase in weight since having a disability ?
