When is your surgery scheduled? I've found this to be much easier than I had expected, and have lost 25 lbs. this month. Be good to yourself: get the tastiest shakes and such you can find, blend everything eith ice so you don't taste sthe protein powder, and buy yourself flowers to cheer up your home. Despite your name, you won't be obese forever. You will lose weight faster than ever before, and learn a new way to live. Follow the plan religiously and you'll reach your goal!
