I am. I could kick myself for not having kept detailed records of all the diets I have attempted in the past few years. That would have helped big time. I am going ahead as planned anyways. I did the nutrition class Thursday. I can't believe they charge $100 for that. I have gotten WAY MORE info from all you guys here. Geesh!! LOL. I am gonna push for Dr. Umbach to submit for approval. I have major back problems. I am not sure, physically, if I can go another 2 years. And WLS is cheaper than spinal surgery.
