Default Weight loss after transplant

I have never struggled with my weight. But in May 2009 I had a liver transplant due to a genetic disease. After the transplant I gained about 40 lbs and weighed as much as I had nine months pregnant with my each of my kids. It is frustrating! They took me off of prednisone (which causes weight gain) last summer and since then I have lost about 10 of the lbs I gained, but I have now plateaued and I want to lose the rest of it. So I thought this site would be a good tool. I purchased a treadmill 2 weeks ago which I have been using every day. exercising helps me to be more disciplined with my eating as well.

Anyway, I want to get out of my size 14 pants and be back into my 10's! Maybe even by this summer so I can feel good in a swimsuit!
