Thank you for your comment on my blog. I think if you stick with this site you will see that a lot of people are able to lose weight. But you must take baby steps, take it one day at a time, and it will take awhile. This new journey is how you will live the rest of your life. A friend of mine researched the weight loss surgery and found out that after it is over you still have to eat healthy and exercise. So there are no quick fixes. Glad you joined Spark People, I added you as a friend.
