      I am 10 weeks and have lost 80% of hunger, having to force myself to eat. Honestly, I will be glad when hunger returns.

      Coach, I am a shrink and would consider it unprofessional to handwrite a letter like that.

      Agree with Shannon. Also, I have had RNY and only one major dumping episode in 9 weeks, these are controlled with good eating habits.
