Little bit late to start exercising now that you're 300 lbs.. You really let that one go for a while. Why didn't you start looking for help at 200lbs? Or 250? 300 is a whole new level and you probably are gonna have to go through hell and back to be normal again. The trick is to catch yourself before you go overboard, but I guess it wasn't important to you while you were younger.

Start working out AT LEAST every other day. Do SPRINTS. Long distance is alright, but will also eat away at your muscle as well as fat. Sprints are the best for just losing fat, but keep muscle (if you have any to keep).

And about your anxiety, try meditation to calm you down - it will help increase your focus as well as your overall awareness. To live a truly happy life, you will need a healthy body.

You didn't give your height. You should see your Dr. He will set you up with a diet. You also need to exercise regularly. When you hit the gym, don't over work, just enough for you to "feel the burn" in your muscles. After your workout, spend some time in the steam room. By the end of summer, you should have converted most of the body fat to muscle, and some of the remaining weight will dissolve. Your commitment will be about three hours every other day in the gym and on the other days, a walk or jogging will help. Don't forget to stick to the diet.

Hi, I have been suffering with severe anxiety panic attacks for 6 weeks, it has made me physical sick, my stomach stays upset, cannot sleep, diarhea , can t eat, have night sweats and heart palpitation with heart rate of over 100 beats per minute, also have since February an awful roaring in my brain that will not go away and made me so agitated and nervous and I cannot concentrate and do anything, I also had Rheumatoid Arthritis since 1970 and am in great pain since then. I been under care of an Rheumatologist since . I have seen an Psychiatrist for 8 month, has me on 2 depression pills Britellix and Mirazepam, My depression is not the real problem , my problem is more of the anxiety. He prescribed lorazepam .05 mg one at night and 1 for daytime . I told him it does nothing for my constant anxiety, I get so nervous and so very scared all the time. My anxiety got so bad so I took 1 extra lorazepam and I felt much better. So I told him that and he got furious with me. I asked him to increase the dosage but he refused. He always increases the depression medication to the strongest dose, but will not help me with the anxiety or is not willin to try some other med for severe anxiety. I was on Valium about 40 years ago for anxiety caused by my constant homesickness. I am from Germany and met my husband while he was in the Army stationed in my hometown Oberammergau and then moved to virginia in 1963 when I became so homesick I had a nervous breakdown , was in hospital for a week and put on. Valium 5 mg for a short time. But since then my anxiet stopped. Until just recently. My question is why this doctor won t give me the right meds for anxiety. All he does is treats me for depression which is not really the big problem right now. Yes while in constant severe pain in my back and neck and joints for so long I feel sometimes depressed, which comes with RA. When I got depressed sometimes because of severe pain I still coul do things like going to work, raising 2 sons and everyday living. Now with the anxiety I cannot function at all and cannot concentrate on anything. I am 71 years old. My husband of 51 years is very ill for the last 5 years kidney cancer. COPD, on oxygen 24/7 for 4 years, heart failure, insulin dependent . His prognosis is not good, I used to be able to take care of him (he has been in the hospital 11 times in the last 4 years. But since I have this terrible anxiety attacks he is taking care of me instead, which is too much for him and we live alone. There is nobody that can help us.. Sorry to give me my life story . Can you please give me some advise if it s time to get a second opinium about my problem, since my doctor does not want to help me with my anxiety, he seems to ignore it. I am in desperate need for help to overcome the fear everyday. Hope to hear from you soon and please excuse my handwriting mistakes. My English is not that good as it used to be. Please help me and God bless. Hilda

Hi, every morning I get a nervous stomach no matter what I eat or don t eat. Something I eat to prevent it and other times I try not to eat because I wonder if they food I m picking are causing my nervous stomach. But my nervous stomach comes when i m in class or at a large gathering so it makes me wonder maybe because I m nervous myself and my stomach is just reacting to my mind or body. I even try using the bathroom before school to see if it will help but it doesn t, I need help asap with this because it s really embarrassing to sit in class and hear my stomach roaring no matter what I do or eat. School just started and I would really appreciate anything that would help me stay focus in class and not worry about my roaring tummy. Thxs.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
