It took me a long time to find something that worked for me.
I started buying DDP Yoga which helped me build some muscle but I didn’t really loose weight, plus I’ll be honest it felt like a chore most of the time. it was still good to get active again though
I then invested in an exercise bike which is what really kick started my weight loss. I ended up propping my iPad on the handle bars so I can watch stuff while I pedal away. Giant Bomb videos and anime being favourites. I had to exercise pretty much once a day though and gradually increase the intensity and time period, a few times a week wasn’t really doing it for my body apparently.
Around this time I looked at my diet too. I cut portion size (cause I’ve always been an over eater) and cut out unnecessary carbs (like not having garlic bread with pasta dishes, drinking light beer and just having veggie burgers without the buns but more salad) being vegan this was kind of tough but to loose weight it was worth it.
To date I’ve ended up loosing 3 stone over 2 and a half years (41lbs) going from 16.2st to 13.3st (227lbs to 186lbs) still got a ways to go but for the first time in my life I feel informed enough to do it.
I guess part of it is learning what works for your body through trial and error. Also having any kind of friends in similar positions to help motivate you (like this thread!) is really good to have.
