As with any weight loss, the more you lose the more active you can be and the more active you are, the more you lose. I'm sure you feel that, too!
You have done exceedingly well then, Barb. Congratulations on your anniversary!

But there are other reasons,
I am no longer diabetic
I no longer take bp meds
My cholesterol is now good
However I am now anemic.

But yes I WOULD do it again.....

I have not had the surgery and now I'm jolly and jiggle when I laugh like a big bowl of jelly, and although it might be my contacts, I sometimes have a twinkle in my eye! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Guess I'll pass on that one, just got a new truck. Not to mention it would take me 40 acres to turn that rig around!

On another note, this Friday is Ned Perme's last day. Just a little Home News for you.
