The Losing Side


[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

Hi there, I'm Lesely. I'm new to the group and my goal is to lose all the weight I gained pre and post spinal surgery. One thing is certain - not moving and stuffing with comfort foods for almost a year will really pack on the padding! In any case, I'm doing very well with my "fly by the seat of your pants" healthy eating/exercise routine, and am happy to report I'm over half way to my goal weight. Go me! *does happy loser dance*

I'm lucky in that I'm so fond of sushi. It really is a great addition to any diet...if you can get past the raw fish thing, that is. ;) I'm very glad I stumbled across this group. Good luck to all of us losers!

Thanks so much! :D Just the other day I was able to fit into a pair of jeans I haven't been able to get so much as a leg into for who knows how long. Nothing motives you like fitting into some of your long lost clothes...especially jeans. I'm starting to finally feel "normal" again, and oh how sweet it is!

I'm glad you can enjoy that feeling as well, Stephanie. I'm loving it! I didn't realize if I updated my ticker (saw someone else using the TickerFactory site, I'm new to tickers too), my older weight loss information would be replaced. In any case, I don't remember the exact weight I was when I posted, but in 8 more lbs, I'll FINALLY be under 200lbs again!! So close I can almost taste it! I hope this positive news can give a little boost to those in here that may need it. We can do this!

Good luck with your diets/exercise routines!
