balance is way off



Recommended Posts

does any one else have balance issues seems when i had a big ol belly i could balance a lot better

maybe my brain and body need to catch up when i put my 60lb pack pack on i feel way more balanced walking on trails and uneven ground

it could just be me seems weird as im a lot lighter balance should be easier almost like i need to reset my center of gravity lol

looking forward to your responses

Yep. This is it exactly hon! Your body will catch up but doing balance exercises will help. Tai Chi is supposed to be amazing for us as is yoga!!

My balance was whacked from chemo, but it's much worse now that I'm 131.

Ha on falling in yoga! We were doing balance exercises in support group at the last meeting and I kept falling out/over! LOL. Forget about closing my eyes!

No so ha on the hiking on the trail and falling! ((hugs)) Hope your vertigo corrects itself. Do you do the exercises for it?

So weird about the backpack balancing you! But cool you figured that out.

Oh no, I fall enough as it is! I have been falling for a couple years, when I was in for my surgery the nurses kept asking me how I got the injury to my leg, seemed like they didn't believe me. As for Vertigo, I get it a few times a year for the past 10 years. It is no fun!

I suffer from balance issues related to an aging hip replacement. I was in no shape to do yoga and I knew I wouldn't stick with something that I struggled to perform. So, when I finally got off my duff to lose the weight, I was very selective with the type of exercise I incorporated. About 10 years ago, I had a friend/trainer who taught us some basic Qigong exercises and I knew the benefits but had trouble following videos. I found a new teacher about 2 years ago and signed up.

I've been doing Qigong for 2 years now and have noticed a significant improvement in my balance and my body's overall organization. I walk with ease and don't have any pain. I'm more flexible without all those pretzel-like yoga poses. I would also say that I'm in a better place, mentally. Qigong has made a huge difference in my life and I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of physical fitness.

Qigong: (pronounced chee-gong) is a basic Chinese physical and breathing practice that some consider the foundation of TaiChi. It has roots in Chinese medicine and is for healing and well-being.

Thanks so much for this! I'm gonna see if I can find a school here! I'd know about Tai Chi, but thought Qigong was the same thing! Glad you're balance and pain is better!!!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
