Need adivce for a workout plan for the mother...

Ok, My mom is really fucked up. Not mentally, just physically. I hope she doesn't see this post but she weighs over 300. She's 43 and has so many things wrong with her. She has diabetes, she just had surgery to get her skin cancer and a tumor removed. They say she is only going to live for another 8 years at the rate she is going. And come on... this is my mom. I don't want that to happen. So I am wanting any advice from anyone to get her healthy and TRY (LOL) to get her skinny like she was when she was 18. Please, leave all the smart ass comments and stupid shit out. I'm not really in the mood for any of it. Thank you in advance!

make sure her diet is well balanced and try to get her on an exercise bicycle. Low impact and she can do it while she's hanging around the house watching tv.

What about a Treadmill? Or is that to much?

it depends on her. Walking on a treadmill is fine IF she will do it, but being older and heavy, her knees / ankles/feet are likely to bother her. The chances are better on a bicycle that it won't bother her as much. Either way there will be an adjustment period.

So, just sticking with eating right and doing the bicycle thing every day is good. But for how long?

depends on what she can do. Let her do it for 15 minutes to see how she feels. If she can go farther, then do so. As her body acclimates itself to being active, she will be able to go farther.

Eventually, I'd look for 45min-1hour of low intensity exercise.

Diet is key right now. Just walking around the block everday is probably more than she does right now. Diet and increase her activity as her body will tolerate.

Don't starve her but remove the sugars and reduce the fat intake.

The latest discoveries in diet are far beyond what we have known in the past. For your mom, getting her diabetes under excellent control is the first step. Learning about the "nano technology" recently discovered in food is KEY! Buy the book Super Foods RX. Learn the material. Become expert on what healthy nutrition is and you will be able to rehabilitate your mom into a person running on "race gas"! She will feel great, she will be fighting disease. You never know, she may get her diabetes under control so well that she may be able to care for herself with diet alone and be free from any meds or insulin!

Walking is also KEY! She should start wherever she is, even if that is to the mailbox out on the property or something, working up to 30 minutes a day.

Walking will not only have great physical results, but it helps in the secretion of endorphins or "happy juice" that makes people feel great. She will begin building muscle and her metabolism will increase. Walking is also FREE!

Best of luck to your mom and remember, A Journey Begins with a Single Step!

Dude, I'm being very serious here...

Given your mom's situation DO NOT take any advice off this board. Motivate her to seek professional help with people experienced with obesity and diabetes.

Yes, everything I wrote is under the assumption that your mom is supervised by a doctor....that was what you wrote in your original inquiry.

mom

Does your mother have health insurance? If yes, she should schedule a conference for a doctor to discuss a a lap band or gastric bypass surgery. My wife went through the same thing. She had type II diabetes and was way overweight. She has now been declared cured of the diabetes and no longer has to take any medication for it. She has also lost about 165 lbs. She had the bypass. The lap band is much less invasive and will give the same results. One of her co-workers had the lap band done and has had similar results. If you want more info. PM me. I will get you some contact information.

If she's allowed herself to get to be 300lbs, the most imortant thing she will need is the internal desire to change. You can want what's best for her all that oyu can, but she is the one who will hav to be willing to change her dietary habits and stick to an exercise program. Much like conquering a drug addiction, she has to really want chenge for anyone to effectively be able to help her.
