New here and needing support!

Hi my name is Cierra. I am a 27 year old mom of 2. I just had knee surgery in October and am really wanting to loose weight. It's hard because I just started therapy and can't exercise yet so I have to do it by diet alone for now. I really am in need of a support system.:smile:

  • It's hard to hold yourself accountable. Being off work because of surgery I'm home all day and it's so easy to just get up walk into the kitchen and grab something. I found myself doing this and I know I'm not even hungry!

    I had major abdominal surgery in October and am limited in what I can do physically...not much lifting. I know what it's like to be unable to work out. I am doing my wt. loss with diet alone. Please feel free to add me.

    Hey, welcome to the site! I just want to say that you CAN do this by counting calories alone. I've lost 75 pounds and I haven't been to the gym this year. I'm not proud of that, but it's true. And I didn't starve myself either!

    Of course the ideal is to eat the right amount of calories and exercise, but don't wait for some perfect moment — jump in!

    For all the newbies:

    I keep up with terms and acronyms here as there is not a dictionary or glossary provided by the staff.

    If any of you haven't measured yet do it ASAP! It's all those small cm's that add up to amazing inches that keep me on track. I have only lost 20 lbs but, 38 inches total body measurements.
