Well, my surgery is scheduled for Jan 19th 2012. I am starting this journey at 344 lbs! Ive already lost 12 lbs on this wonderful and tasty liquid diet =/ can you sense my sarcasm. LOL. Im hoping to reach a goal weight around 165. Or whatever makes me happy!! Ive been overweight since I was little. Although I thinned out in high school I was still the "bigger" one. Most of my weight gain occurred during my two pregnancies. I gained about 80lbs each time! I tried to lose the weight on my own but they never lasted. So here I am, hoping to be a loser!!!
