    What's wrong? Are you having complications? If not, get excited! I thought the first 6 weeks were fun. I was losing weight, walking more, and knowing I was on my way to being healthy and normal-sized. What's more fun that that? By now you are probably cleared for all foods, so you can start experimenting with your protein and veggie combinations. Imagine a year from now how different your life will be. It's all in the attitude, and a positive one will make all the difference in the world.

    Welcome.
    Yep, time to get excited if you are not already. You are well on your way to a new healthier life.
    Your clothes will be getting loose, you will feel more energetic and people are going to start noticing your weight loss.

    Just a word about clothes - buy little amounts and cheap while you are in this big loosing phase. You will be amazed at how quickly to out grow clothes.

    It only gets better and better :-)

    Yup, this is true. When buying clothes, you should consider buying in small quantities because this was my experience too. I had to watch my best clothes from https://athleta.pissedconsumer.com/c...r-service.html becoming bigger every day and unable to fit me. It's painful to see, honestly. But that's just, by the way. The main point is to lose noticeable weight to make you live healthy and happier. But it's been about three years, so how has life changed?
