Good for you Shelley. You've lost a lot of weight so far. It won't be long and you'll feel like a new person. I have one son, but he's off at college. My two dogs are my babies now. I walk them for exercise.
I noticed that you like flowers. Me too. I grow roses, rose trees, and container flowers (esp. petunias). It won't be long, and your kids wil be able to wrap their arms all the way around you. It's really great when you loose enough for your kids to notice.
Shelley, Congrats on your decision to move toward a healhier life for both you and your family, if you need an angel when you return from Mexico let me know....Come visit us on the AZ board sometime, who's your Doc over there?!! Wishing you an uneventful surgery!!!!
