Good luck Billie on your journey, it was 2 years for me on the 13th of this month I lost 140 pounds and I now weight 140 and I would do it again in a heart beat, everything will work out just fine for you also.
May God's peace and blessings be with you during this process. I am excited for you...and for me...I am having surgery this week also!!
I know that you are anxious and excited...so am I.
Tuesday is your day! Just remember you are on the journey of a lifetime. Try to enjoy every minute. It may sound weird now, but know that you are cared for and prayed for here, and all too soon this will be but a memory and you will be an inspiration to someone else. I am waiting for you on the losers' bench! ~ JudyAnne
