wine and eat better. I do boot camp 3x/ week but think I need to walk daily on other days. It's very frustrating but it will happen.

I'm REALLY having a hard time with this for I have Body Dismorphia http://en.wikipedia....orphic_disorder so this has been a struggle for me even before the stroke. I understand how you feel. I've spent money I should have saved just to try anything with that easy fix. I know stroke isn't easy, If I can cope.. you got this.
Mine was caused by :
Teasing or criticism
It has been suggested that teasing or criticism regarding appearance could play a contributory role in the onset of BDD. While it is unlikely that teasing causes BDD, likewise, extreme levels of childhood abuse, bullying and psychological torture are often rationalized and dismissed as "teasing," sometimes leading to traumatic stress in vulnerable persons. Around 60% of people with BDD report frequent or chronic childhood teasing.
I was abused in my first marriage so now all those insecurities are resurfacing as a result of weight gain and is a stress in my marriage My perception not his)

I agree with Becky, and I know my almost sedentary lifestyle now, and some of my medications, have made it extremely difficult to lose. One thing I have decided is to exercise and eat properly, and if there's any weight lost, it's a bonus.
As stroke survivors, we have to adapt to so many changes; having to adapt to weight gain can be an added slap to the face.
