 She's done well with it, but she really didn't need to take that dig at the DS (i.e. no re-routing of the intestines or "issues with going to the bathroom in public")

She's worked it well (although she seems to take a dig at the DS in one statement  )

Wow, I remember watching this dude on T.V.  He looked fantastic after his 180 lb. weight loss.  No mention of what he died of.  So sad to make it through the journey and still have life cut short.
