Default lost 10 pounds and half a question

Woo hoo..ive lost 10 pounds since Jan 2nd (I was 213 now im 203..my goal is 160) I was 219 before Christmas and got sick which took me down to 213..but I dont think I can count those pounds since I wasnt technically dieting then Im not very active, due to some medical issues(degenerative disk disease and MS).. is it possible to continue to lose weight without much form of exercise?(I have 2 friends though who had gastric bypass and are now so nice and slim and didnt do any exercise at all) I do walk a little bit when I take my kids to school, but I dont like to go to far from home..as I have balance issues and dizzy spells from the MS grrrrrrrr...any input or advice as to what I can do would be great...I can see 160 pounds in the horizon...43 lbs left to lose doesn't seem so far way

Of course you can lose weight without exercise, I do not do much exercise myself due to an injury. My main exercise is walking. Do the best you can with diet and don't worry about the exercise, you don't want to take a chance on falling. Good luck.

Congrats! I myself find that I lose more weight when I'm exercising. 95% of my exercise is walking and the other free style weight lifting.

I agree. You can lose without exercise but it might be slower and you'll have to eat less. I am trying to lose without much exercise myself. The first twelve pounds were no problem but now it has slowed right down. I am thinking of adding something light like a resistance band.

Anyhow congrats on the first ten (count those initial sick pounds too! Celebrate every bit!)

Next mini goal- below 144lbs- 144 is my magic number. I have a mental block about 144. Whenever I get there I start gaining. I got to 142 briefly but it didn't last.
