Hey everybody! It sounds like you are all doing so well. I am coming along, slowly but surely, as well, although sometimes a bit frustrated. I hit my -50lb mark (starting from my first consult on 6/8/16) sometime last week, then it went back up. I've hit quite a few stalls. My endocrinologist lowered my thyroid meds about a month after surgery, but I'm wondering if it was too premature. I also had an affair with Goldfish crackers...we finally broke up. I just don't want that kind of relationship, although we may "hook up" from time to time. I'm not really missing them though. I actually feel MORE restriction and less hunger since stopping my Goldfish habit. Interesting, right?! Still, I went from a size 24 to 16/18 pants and 3x to 1x in about 10 months, so that's nice!

It would be great to meet up again soon.
