Too fat to climb...

So, I suffer from low motivation. It sucks. But, I have always wished to be in shape enough for rock climbing. Sadly, I have tried to lose weight but my enthusiasm wanes quickly. I was hoping to come here to find people like me who would love to climb if they could. Maybe we could support each other? Also, are there any ideas (nothing in public please, I am 300 lbs and don't want the insults) to start not only working out, but working out while developing my skills? I'm hoping that maybe that, instead of a boring jog or lifting weights, I can do something that will keep me motivated. I thought about attaching handholds to the wall and just hanging there periodically to help :) anyway, any advice is appreciated.

I love how many of you responded Laugh TY so much! I have read everything. But, I find it strange you all assumed I was male. I am female. Wink

I have already started eating less. I do know about good nutrition and serving sizes. I just get too lazy to cook Unsure but I am going to work on it rigorously. You all have inspired me so much. I am definitely going to go outside and see if there are any areas where I can climb (safely) without being vertical. That is an excellent idea!!

A personal trainer... I have considered this. There is a gym thisclose to me but again, the looks I get. I don't know if males have the same experience or not, but ugh I have had people laugh at me before when I tried to work out. And this is an LA Fitness. I just imagine the gaggle of beautiful people in there and feel like I just can't do it.

Again, thank you all for the information. I am definitely going to get moving! As for the name, I suppose I could request a name change. You are right that it is too negative. Maybe I will finally get enough motivation to actually follow through.

You are an awesome community. Thank you for your help Smile
