to the team! We're glad to have you here. We do our general chit chatting in the Narced Lounge, so we hope to see you drop in there. We also have a monthly weight loss challenge, so please feel free to jump in the beginning of April. Our group is very friendly and fun and willing to give advice (isn't everyone?!?!?)! Hope you enjoy our group.
On a side note, just from me, since you are having surgeries and probably finding it difficult to exercise for weight loss, can I suggest you look into the Fast Metabolism Diet (book written by Haylie Pomroy). It's an awesome diet, and you can lose weight without much exercise at all. You eat lots of food (when I started on it, I couldn't eat all that she said to eat and it took me a while to work up to it). Lots of fresh veggies, fruits, lean meats and fish, healthy fats. It works by eating certain foods on certain days, and she lays it all out for you. There are lots of choices of fruits and veggies for each phase (groups of days) so anyone should be able to find something they like from the list. Check it out if you would like. I started the diet the end of June and the weight came off rather quickly. I've changed my way of eating to more like the diet for every day...so it's not so hard to keep the weight off and still have a nice treat now and then.
I am a person of infinite possibilities and dreams.
