Shout it from the mountain tops!

After a very long a stressful month, the doctors gave me the OK to put some weight on my foot. Just have to be super careful and use the aide of the knee walker and wheelchair when needed.


Like if that wasn't exciting enough, I also went to my WW meeting last night too. I was concerned about my weigh in since I have not been mobile for the last 4 weeks. And unable to go weigh in.

Well the scales were very nice to me. I lost 6.8 pounds during those 4 weeks.


Just goes to show ya that you can lose weight without exercise. I am so disciplined in what I eat, so I am convinced that is the secret to my success.

I love being thin and only wished I had done this years ago. I love the way my clothes fit, and that I can wear anything I see in the stores. I even have noticed people treat me different now that I am smaller. (they are nicer). Go figure!

Getting excited for the BIG football game Saturday. I bought a black wig to wear since it is going to be a BLACKOUT game against TCU. I can't wait to go and cheer on my mighty UTAH UTES! We are still un-defeated so I am a little nervous about this one. We beat TCU in 2008 so I know it can be done. And who knew that we would beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, not Alabama that's for sure! LOL

I will post pictures of how silly I look at the game. Until then I AM SMILING BIG!


  1. Woo hoo!!!! I am so smiling after reading this:)

  2. yippee!!! I am so happy for you!!! come on over and visit me.. I miss you!!

  3. Wow girl. What an amazing loss. Its great how you stayed focused during that time. It could have been very easy to lose control. You should be proud of yourself.

  4. Yeah, way to go! Walking is so wonderful - so happy your Dr. gave you the OK to get back at it!

  5. Hooray for being mobile!! And wow - what a great weight loss!! Enjoy yourself at the game!
    diane :)

  6. That weight loss is really great!! I'd love to have a good weight loss sometime! Mine are usually just a pound or less at a time..

    Glad to hear that you are allowed to put some weight on your foot now..

    Have a great time at the game!


  7. People do seem to treat me nicer...... except for a few nurse friends who are still struggling...... I guess they should blog, eh?
    Glad you are better!

  8. woo hoo!!! up and running... or walking carefully, whichever works

    wow that loss was amazing, see you were all worried for nothing!!!

  9. I've thought about you and your challenged foot many this week as I have sustained a foot injury myself. Six weeks of cramming my flat feet into hells--I mean "heels"--has taken its toll on my right foot. OUCH, OUCH, OUCH in anything but house slippers.

    Don't wear heels, you say? I don't have your long, lovely legs!

    A six-pound w/l while being off your feet is truly a testimony to your determination of mind over matter. That is one for the record book.

    And, I hope your UTEs make the record book today, too. GO UTES!! GO LESIA!!! Two big winners!

  10. That's many "times" this week, in the first sentence. My brain saw it, but my fingers didn't type it the first time around....

  11. Of course you can lose weight without exercise! I've been claiming that for ages now! ha! :-)

  12. Lesia, You are such an inspiration!!! You are doing awesome!!! So glad you are feeling better!!

    Keep up the great work!!!

  13. Hey girlie....just checking in with you...hope everything is ok.

  14. Checking in - sayin "Hi!" and
    *smile* !!

  15. Congrats on the weight loss! I always say that weight loss has nothing to do with's all about the food. Way to knock it outta the park!

  16. Okay you haven't updated in nearly a month. What's going on? How are you?

  17. I came across your blog from a mutual blogger. I am on a Journey to lose 60 Pounds and have been blogging about it and I also have MS! The excersise is tough but I am trying now to get in what days I can. I am encouraged by your success. Keep it up!
