    You have to reduce the calories in what you eat... while still eating healthy stuff. Your mobility issues reduce your caloric needs and you probibly haven't reduced what you eat by a simialr amount to adjust.

    If you have access to a dietition what can go through exactly what and how much you eat and dring all day, calculate how many calories it is... and make adjustments and recommendations that will still ensure proper nutrition.
