So, I've just started my second round of antibiotics and they've added prednizon; I've got the type of flu virus that is morphong into upper-respirory infection. I've been banned from cardio till we get this under control. Accourding to the doctor, it's necessary that I can breath. So all I can do is weight training.

Sorry to hear... question is, do we really need to breathe? I'd get a second opinion of that. (I'm kidding, in case you're in doubt)

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Hi me better - I am recovering from the morph also. I went through three rounds of antibiotics, prednisone, steroid inhaler and strong cough medicine. My doctor did not ban cardio per se, but I did not feel like walking or much else until afer I started the third round of antibiotics and just did what I could handle. I am not back to where I was a month ago but am getting there slowly but surely. Keep in mind any movement is movement and it is a step in the right direction. I hope you recover quickly just hang in there!
