  1. So here are the stats: 75 lbs down 73 inches lost BP from 160/98 to 114/88. Sugars from 102 to 83 No aches or pains. From no exercise to walking 5 hours a week and taking 5-1 hour classes a week. Size 24 to a 12 No diet coke for over a year. No alcohol for over a year. Kicked caffeine in the last 4 months. Still working on the sugar thing... I also submitted a "Wow" moment to OH and have been informed that my story and picture have been accepted for a future issue. Very Cool. Best of all, I feel normal. Most of you will know what I mean by this. I don't worry about the size and strength of chairs. I don't measure myself against others to see if I am the biggest person in the room. I just...feel...normal. But the funny thing is, I still feel like the same me inside, just in different packaging. Best of Luck to Everyone on this Journey, Susan
  2. Thank you so much! I hurt for days after kicking that high! Susan
  3. Congratulations and best of luck on your surgery! It is the scariest and exciting time! I still remember them wheeling me into surgery and getting the blankets put over me in the OR. It has been a great Journey! Please contact me if you need an Angel or any advice> Susan
  4. I never got to the point of any meds. Just the diet and exercise. Thanks for the note!

    For those with a 10cc Band

    10cc band not filled during surgery. 6 weeks after placement received 6cc's. Going for 2nd fill on 12/28 since I can eat more than a cup of food at a time. Down 55 lbs since August. Susan
