Hi, Lynette! Yea, it's great having someone right along with me. I ended up losing 6 lbs inf 4 days last week and I am really eating a lot of calories. I don't know how this low carb thing works, but, I'm thrilled it is. This weeks challenge is learning to put our forks down between each bite. Baby steps... but getting us closer! emoticon

Hope whenever you read this, you are having a wonderful Sunday! It's a rainy day here in Lexington, KY, but, sometimes it's ok to have a rainy day so you can just relax, get some chores around the house done and maybe fit in a nice nap! Haha, that's my plan anyway!

Are you post- or pre-surgery? What are the biggest challenge you have had to overcome since your journey began and how did you best deal with them?

I am about 2 months pre-surgery and have just started with my appointments and everything. They have put us on a low carb diet and so far can't complain. I thought it would be hard, but, I have a lost a few pounds, have a ton more energy and even when I'm a little hungry I'm not famished and chewing my husband's right arm :-) What are your challenges? How do you get through them?
