    It's a new year and I've hit the regular food stage finally. I gave myself a day or two to ease into 2013 but finally got my first workout in today. Hoping to keep in up through the weekend and then get into a regular schedule next week. This is my year to follow through with my resolutions!

    I don't understand this surgery I have been suffer every since I had this surgery. I can't eat always throwing and follow everything the doctor has told me. I think that they need to give more classes on how some people can end up really sick doing this surgery. That it may help you lose weight but you also lose so many others thing also.
