Customer Question

Hi-
I am 52 and I have having an impossible time losing weight. I have cerebral palsy, and right now I am losing the ability to walk. The main issue is exhaustion. So working out is a real challenge. I have been doing Weight Watchers for several months and I have lost 3 lbs.
I want to lose that weight, I mean it is a really important to me! I started to read Dr. Sara Gottfried book, but there are a thousand suggestions- and the amount of work to go through and sore it all out. I fear I'll have more questions than answers. ii feel like a professional can help me.
thanks- Sue
