I will be 40 this year and I’ve have a pretty bad weight problem for the last 12 years or so. In the middle of November 2023 I maxed out at 323 pounds. I have finally got to a place where I can go to the gym regularly. By cutting my diet to down to less than a 1000 calories a day and doing crossfit 3 to 4 times a week I am down to 300 today. I have set a loose two pound per week goal, but I am just barely making it and I am eating almost nothing. I have a garmin watch to monitor my heart rate and it also it always telling me that I need to get moving and that I am not getting enough steps. I work from home so there is not even walking around an office. As I have to be at my computer at 8 hours a day and I live in Maine and it is winter, walking is not much of an option. Today I ordered a standing desk and a walking treadmill to go under it. My plan is to set it up next to my normal desk and then buy three new monitor and mirror the signal to my existing three monitor. So in theory I could now walk 8 hours a day. The treadmill I bought said it had a max speed of 3.8 mph I think. I guess my question is does anybody have an experience with these standing desk walking treadmill combinations? Anybody that has started in the 300 pound range like me? The fact is to loose the 20 pounds I did with crossfit was hard in the sense that I had to eat almost nothing the whole time. I actually like the exercise its self, but the numbers are not happening fast enough. I have not had a chance to ask a doctor what they think, but I do think something is wrong because this is such a slow process.
