Way to go, you keep up the good work. I am happy for your loss. I can't wait till I am on the losing side. Seems as though I can no longer remember being a healthy normal sized person. Soon my time will come and I can join the wonderful world of post op losers. Take care.

You go girl! You've inspired me to purchase a bike. I hope I still remember how to ride (ha ha). Keep up the good work, you are making excellent progress.

Linda Bates,I read your post today about riding your bike. It brung tears to my eyes and memories flooded my mine. This is one of the things I just can't wait to do. I think the last time I rode a bike was when I was 13 yrs old. I loved my bike so much. I rode and rode all day long. I felt like I was free and like you said it felt like you are flying in the wind. Oh! how I want to do this so badly. I tell you as soon as I get were I want to be. I will be going to wal-mart or someplace to purchase my bike. I'll be just like a little kid trying to get the best and prettiest one. I just can't wait for this to happen. Oh well hon, you take care and keep pushing those pedals. ~*~Hugs~*~

ANGEL UPDATE! Just got off the phone with Linda! She is HOME!! Yipee! Hooray! She was discharged from the hospital today. She is set up in bed with her diet snapple, water and ice and is all ready to get on with healing and losing! She sounded terrific!
