    Hopefully I get the info my surgery soon. But 40 pounds total is still know things to be ashamed of. I can't wait to share my weight loss stories with everyone.
  13. Well, it wasn't that good. I actually lose 10 pounds prior to surgery and 31 pounds since surgery. I am happy to help though in any way that I can. Keep in touch with any questions.

  15. Thanks. I'm looking forward to the next steps for sure. I'm glad you are doing well. I am off work for about a week and a half, so hopefully that is enough.
