Hi everyone! My name is Lisa, and I live in SC. I am soon to be 52 and want to get back to my pre-hysterectomy weight. Today is Day 1 for me! I am excited, but a little nervous too. I am doing this alone, and am concerned I will cave when my partner and I are off work together. The temptation to eat junk and have a vodka & tonic is very strong right now (but fortunatley I just had roasted cabbage and grilled fish and am stuffed). It’s embarrassing for me to admit, but I haven’t gone more than 48 hours without a drink in several years. I have become so used to having a drink or two at night, whether alone or in company. Until July 2013, my weight has never been an issue. However, I gained 20lbs after having a hysterectomy. My metabolism went haywire, and my desire to workout left me. I’m disappointed in myself, but want to succeed – and this forum along with FaceBook will be great support.
