Hi Mike! Congrats on your MARVELOUS weight loss thus far! To think, 225 lbs in a year!!! I so appreciate all your support in my own journey, and know that it means so much to me. You are truly a wonderful role model for me, and I am sure others as well! Sending hugs and smiles your way, and I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Coastal meeting!!! I had a few major events going on in August, so only made 2 of the 4 or 5 meetings, but I will be sure to go this coming Monday! :) Caroline (down 80 lbs in 4 months post-op and hoping to follow your lead!)

Well , I am closing in on a year and I am shooting for 225 pound loss in one year. I am at 210 pounds lost now. (ten months) I had some trouble with my kidney's and bladder, and they still don't know what is going wrong. I think I started drinking too much diet soda, and not enough water. I went back to drinking about 100 oz of water a day, and things seem to have cleaned themselves up. I go in for another checkup soon. Life is great, and I feel better than I have in a very long time. I heard a great quote, 'nothing tastes as good as being thin feels" thanks Johnathan.b

Mike, I was reviewing the nutrition forum for the Myoplex Protein Shakes and came across your post. I went to your profile/surgery page and read about your fabulous progress. I noticed you haven't posted any new updates. Just curious to see how you're doing. Best wishes for you on your new, adventurous life (((hugs))).

To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits,that is the courage to succeed. Bernard Edmonds
