I know some of you meant well by telling my that running and walking is the only way to lose weight. The fast is I can not jog anymore. I have multiple sclrosis. i hardly go outdoors except to go to a doctor or to get groceries. The sun here in Florida makes things worser on me. I have lost weight before when I was using a walker just by cutting back on starchs and doing exersised that I got from a book called exercises for ms. The article I wrote wasn't even asking for tips on losing weight. It was about the anger I had from what someone in a resapnse had said that I must eat dounuts all day. Any how thank you for all of your responses and I am here to stay. Shaunee

Be cool Shaun. Take it easy. I am no different from you and have been having hard time losing weight. I am grateful that I don't suffer any illnes to date. There are people who are inconsiderate and do not really care what they are saying that can be very hurting.

Thank you I do exerise everyday and I also try to eat right and I walk around my house where it is cooler since my ground is not even and even at night when it cools off I have a problem of walking outside due to the fear of falling down since my body can't walk on uneven ground.

Shaun, i admire your decision. Quitting Mylot is never an answer. Being here is being true to yourself. You have been hurt by a response,the good thing is even if you are hurt you still want to stay because of us and mylot. who cares for them, it is you that is important.I hope you can move on and lets face it no one will agree to you always, but giving a foolish response is not always the right thing, I wish those person will learn to respect other people's feelings.

I wish you find a way to get better. I can't say that I really understand how you feel, but I had a similar problem, that when I was starting to walk, after a few steps, my back, my knees and my feet would start hard and I wouldn't make it standing up. I was on bed for 4 months, not able to go out on my own, but now I am better, thanks to medicines. I suggest that you search to find a way to help yourself with your problem. I am sure there is something.

Whoa! That's horrible that someone would say that! They just have no clue. Well, I don't know you, but I'm glad you're staying. You seem like you are honestly concernced about your health and have taken some proactive steps toward correcting what you can. I am "healthy" and have got the hardest time loosing weight here lately. They've tested my thyriod and it's ok. I walk at least 2 miles every day, I watch what I eat. And, I'm currently training for a 3-day/60 mile walk in 3 weeks. I do tend to eat things that are bad for me, but not all the time. I do find that when I stick to my diet I have much better results. But sometimes I just want something that's not good for me.
