:emoticons-line-dance: If I could dance all day I would!!! It's a very very slow process, But
I'm doing it! Love it when I get on the scale and it says 1 lbs lower! Average only 5 lbs a month...maybe..
But it's sooooooooooooooooooooooo worth it!! When I started I was so doubtful that I would be able to lose 5lbs
much less 25. 35 to go...or more I can hope for more!!!! Would be wonderful to be back to where I was when
I got married :) 25 1/2 years ago!! Ladies, all it takes is to move a little every day. If I can do
it anyone can!!! It's hard, especially since I'm on oxygen 24/7. I just turn it up and do the best I can.
I love all of you!! SUPER HUGS!!!

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

:emoticon-congratulations: susie

:you-rock: a VERY BIG WELL DONE

Im so glad things are heading in the right direction as I know it cannot be easy when mobility and your chest hampers your excercise, you never know as the weight comes off the strain on your heart and lungs may well decrease and things may improve in that department!! hope so.

You keep going for it girl :woohoo:

hugs and good wishes
Lynn

Hi SusieQ,

That it is terrific news! I am so very very pleased for you! :emoticon-congratulations:

I was told that it is much better to just lose just 1 or 2 lbs a week because it's more likely to stay off.

:thank-you: :thank-you: :thank-you:

It feels so good to get some of the weight off! I'm now stalled for a bit...but only because I think
I ate some birthday cake...but had to celebrate :) Working out is the key. Thanks so much for all
your well wishes, really makes me feel good, and makes me want to keep up the good work.
Never thought I'd feel guilty for NOT exercising...LOL :rolleyes: no not me!! LOL
Thanks again everyone HUGS HUGS HUGS
