I'm holding at just over 65# lost.
Jane, if SLeW would like a Nutrisystem referral, let me know. I have some hookups for getting the program pretty cheaply, and the convenience food helps kickstart things sometimes.
Sounds like you are doing great though! It's especially hard to keep going when your support buddy derails.
I officially have a little over 2lbs to go to get to my original target weight. I might go a bit lower as I seem to put it back on very quickly.
I'm back into the swing of going to the gym in the mornings after having last week off for health reasons. I'm not losing weight, but I can feel and see the changes in my body. I now have the stationary bike seat a notch higher. When I stretch my arms I no longer feel the resistance in my right forearm and hand that years of mouse use tightened up. I've learned how to lower my heart rate quickly through breathing. And my clothes fit better.
Vicki - maybe. The gym didn't ask. I'm not restricting calories but going from unhealthy to healthier eating. Still getting required calories for being pregnant etc. Exercise isn't too full on. I'm not jumping or anything, just low impact stuff. I think I'm ok but will mention it next time I see my GP. I don't think I'm going to stop though, unless my body is saying no. Feeling pretty positive.
I apologize if I came off as discouraging- that was not my intention. I just am a worrier. I am sure you'll be able to figure out what is appropriate for you. Not your first rodeo, after all!
