Back in 2008, you left a supportive comment on my blog. I just wanted to drop by to say thank you. I have not been the greatest SPFriend, but I'm trying to change that. It's because of SPFriends like you I was empowered to lose 152 pounds. If there is anything I can do to guide and support you, please let me know! emoticon

Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Linda
