I need to lose weight I have a hard time with heart burn a lot of it is my stress and I cant do any thing about that because I cant stand my job but I have been looking for years and I have not been able to find a new job and it is causing me big time depression. But I need to at least lose some weight because that is the one healthy thing I can control and I am about 30 lbs over what I should be at 216 has of Jan 1. I tend to have less heart burn issues when I am at like 200ish. I got lazy around the holidays like most people and gained 3 lbs. I worked out the last like 5 days took today off to relax. I did a few days on the total gym I got a few months ago and I also got a elliptical not long ago and I used that a few times during those days to. I try to go like 40-50 minutes but because I am not in great shape + having asthma it is hard. I am able to do it but I do get pretty tired and do have to like slow down some and get a drink of water and such more so on the elliptical has my cordio is really bad. Hate that I have asthma makes things harder. I like to play basketball but I can really only do that on my days off and that is if I am not bussy with work, school, hw, job screeching. When I do play I can only play like 50 minutes because I just cant breath after that wish I could play like 2 hours. Not only the breathing but when I exercise more so with the cordio I always crap up some what mostly in the hamstring area. I dont known if part of that is because of my asthma and so like not getting enough oxygen to my muscles or what.
