Hello Everyone, I just got back from my weigh in and am an official member of the Century Club. In 14 weeks since my surgery, I have lost 102 pounds ..... What a wonderful feeling. I have actually hit two goals, I have broken below the 400 pound barrier and have lost over 100 pounds. I have not been around the boards lately as I have been traveling alot. I will be moving down to Jackson Michigan for the next two months as I have accepted an offer to help some friends. I will be heading down this coming Saturday. Hopefully I will get a chance to visit with some of you when I am there. My cell phone is 616.634.6314 give me a call. Blessings, John 7/28/03 Open RNY MicroPouch Dr. Schuhknecht 14 weeks Post Op 495 BMI 73.1 393 BMI 58.0
