Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all the kind words and support I am so excited! I cannot believe that I have lost 25lbs already. I think my weight loss will slow slightly in the next month because I am scheduled to have surgery, but I will be doing my best to get back on my feet soon after!

Great effort brings great results!

Fighting a similar battle, I know how you feel lowering your blood pressure back to normal again.

Keep it up! emoticon

So today is my one month anniversary of my lifestyle change. I just came back from the drs and I have lost 25lbs, 2.5 inches from my waist, and my blood pressure is now back in the normal ranges.

I am so excited! Even though I am still recovering from a spinal fusion and disc replacement surgery, and suffering with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), with the help and support of the awesome tools and members of Sparkpeople, I am well on my way to being healthier! Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement! Would not be able to do it without this awesome website and community!

All the best,
Brett (I can now see the tip of my toes) Day
