If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.

That is emoticon GRANNYS5! Exercise really can do wonders for the pain and fatigue. Granted it's not that way for everyone, and not every day, but little by little it can hopefully get that way.

I gained almost three lbs. over my starting weight, and SP counts only from the starting weight, so on SP I've lost 12, but if I add the 2.75, it is 14.75. That doesn't sound like a whole lot, but it's my first weight loss in a long, long time. I never in my life dreamed that I would weigh over 300 lbs. Before I got so large, I thought that 300 was completely taboo. It was on the same level with--I would never steal, or I would never break my marriage vows. Imagine the shame I felt when I saw the scale stop at 302.75! So believe me, I am so proud of leaving that number behind.

Down about 41 pounds, what is that like a 5 or 6 yr old child. My kids were skinny when they were little.

Lyrica can do that, make one gain weight. Always amazes me that a medicine can cause one to gain weight even if they don't eat more. I sure hope you don't have to double your dosage. It's always a difficult balance between medication and weight, not to mention wanting to feel better to workout, but then end up paying a price by gaining weight.

Hanging near the 70 pound mark. Need to loose another 70 but docs keep messing with my medications. I gained 50 when I first went on the Lyrica and they are working on doubling my dose So I feel good about holding my own while my body adjusts, Still want to take another 70 off.

Lost another pound! Makes a total of 7 pounds, 15 inches, & 10% body fat. One more and I'll have reached my first goal!
Not quite an "average newborn=7.5 pounds" but close enough.

It's official! I've lost a total of 5 pounds = a Chihuahua! That stubborn 1 pound finally come off. Three more to go to reach my goal, then I'll set another one but once I reach my goal it really won't matter that much. The next one will be a "maybe I can/maybe I can't/we'll see" kind of goal.

I just don't understand why medications have to cause weight gain. I've taken some that did that, regardless of not eating more than I did, and it wasn't water retention either. I just do NOT understand why they have to make them like that.

I've lost an ostrich egg, although that Guinea Pig / 4 sticks of butter keeps sneaking back in. I'll be glad when I've lost my Chihuahua so I can get my "I'VE LOST FIVE POUNDS" trophy!
