    Hey there! How have you been? I see you've lost 35lbs! That's wonderful. Are you working out?

    Wow, I thought I had a lot of children. I have 3 girls and my little gentleman. I see your starting weight is the same as mine. How has life been since surgery? How are you feeling now? I meet with my surgeon on Thursday and then it all gets sumitted to my insurance. I am crossing my fingers they approve it? Did you have any co-morbids to assist in your approval process??

So, I was 3 months out officially a week ago and this morning I woke up to discover I had finally hit 50 pounds lost! From 230 down to 180. I am so thrilled with my progress thus far as I am more than half way to my goal.
