Total Newbie to LCF
This is my first time finding this board, though I'm not "new" to the support of boards...fertility, mommyhood, diabetes, spinal fusion surgery, etc. You get the idea. lol And I know just how helpful the support can be. Well, I'm ready to make a life style change. I will be having breast reduction surgery on 10/23 and would like to lose 15lbs or as much as possible prior to that but plan on continuing afterwards to maintain *a* goal weight...which "calculating ideal weight" for my height says 130lb! :hyst: However, at least 10lbs are the boobs I'm planning on losing. ;) Soo, I'm not committing to an exact weight right now, I'm going to go by how I feel and look more then the scale...but I can relate to the scale obsession some of you have spoken of, so we'll see how that goes. I'm 171lbs, 5'5" and in a size 12 now and I'm on day 2 of induction. I feel pretty good and am trying to keep active. I also had a 360 decompression/spinal fusion surgery in July, so still recovering from that. I look forward to meeting all of you and supporting each other in our goals!
