Watch on YOUTUBE the four part HBO Documentary "THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION" as it has great information. The doctors show how being obese, people develop FATTY LIVERS and it is so interesting.
Consider joining the NATIONAL WEIGHT LOSS REGISTRY when you get to goal weight so you can track how to stay there. This is their link: www.nwcr.ws/
Some people have stayed at goal for over 8 yrs now.
