I was stick thin up until middle school, then my activity level came to a brake slamming hault because of school stress, losing friends, and all the normal changes a pre-teen goes through and apparently my parents weren't concerned enough to care that I no longer went out to play or for hikes or anything like that. So I'm 24 now have struggled with my weight for roughly 13 years - I have two daughters and while my 5 year old is stick thin and very active like I was my 6 year old has more of an average body frame and curves and she is paranoid about getting fat. I want to look better for my kids, and myself, and be able to work myself up to be able to keep up with them. As I mentioned in the question I am asthmatic, I have been all my life but its worse because of the weight. I can't run or jog without having an attack but I walk 2 1/2 miles a week to pick my 5 year old up from school, we play lots of games that include being active and for the most part I can handle that but eventually it does trigger my asthma. We also take the dogs for walks when its not too cold and I did lose weight but now I'm stuck at the same weight. I need to boost my activity level to continue losing the weight but I don't have many options and I don't want to push myself into a major attack (I was in the hospital twice in the last 6 months with shallow breathing and dangerously low oxygen levels).Answer Question
