I refuse to give up, and you shouldn't either. I'm just trying to watch what I eat and try not to snack through the Christmas, then I plan to go back on Liquids and shrink my stomach back down. My doc says it works, so what have i got to lose but the weight again. Luckly I only have about 30-40 lbs to lose, but i'm gonna do it 5 lbs at a time.I also hope to get back to excercising. I have 2 artifical knees and the older of the two is starting to act unstable so I'm gonna try water aerobics. Have a nice holiday and lets try to help each other get back to where we were.
