I haven't been able to get my exercise in yet since I have a class I have to be up for at 5:30am and then I work at night. So, I've just been working with my diet so far, and I'm already losing weight. I lost 3 lbs my first week, I'm in my 2nd (no real exercise yet) and I can already tell I've lost some more weight. So it is possible to lose with just a diet. Maybe after you've lost some and are eating healthier you can go back to your Dr. and they might tell you its ok to exercise then.

Don't let the DR. prescribed diet get you down! Think of it as insurance for your children to have many more years of their Mommy! You will do great! I have been a member of another weight loss site for a while and it really helps to blog and get your frustrations out so others who are in the same boat as you can relate and give you encouragement. I know you will succeed on this new journey to a healthy you! you are worth it and your kids deserve to have the very best Mommy you can offer! keep up the great work!
I joined SP because I was getting chest pains and all the test the dr. was running all came back normal. After having 3 kids, my weight is the highest its been my entire life..... I was going to talk to the dr. today about the possibility that my chest pains could be due to my extra weight, but she beat me to it... She is putting me on a diet. She thinks I might have an ulcer (which she is testing for) and said that even if it is or isn't either way I need to diet. The extra weight makes the ulcer symptoms worse and if NOT an ulcer then its very likely because of the weight... She doesn't want me to start any exercise program until I have a stress test. They are supposed to call me with an appointment. Who knows how long that will be before i can get in... I just feel like I am stuck... I can't exercise because of my pains. Pains that I NEED to diet because of, and dieting alone isn't gonna let me lose weight....
Plus I am worried because before I was dieting for myself, and now I am dieting because I HAVE to...
