    Yes please, I looked at your photos. You had plastic surgery after you lost a massive amount of weight? I've thought about doing that!

    Thanks. My daughter and I started this adventure in march. We decided to do this together. With the help of everyone on My Fitness Pal and Hungry Girl - we started counting calories and watching what we ate. I would like to say we also exercised but we we didn't do hardly any of that. Surprisingly - with all the recipes and reading labels - the dieting came easy. We sure never starved. I still have more to lose in my legs and I hope exercise will help there. Gotta try that. Losing that much weight was great and looked pretty good with my cloths on - but with clothes off - so much lose skin. From what I read, there wasn't alot I could do about the loose skin on my stomach and arms. I was fortunate to have a friend whose daughter worked for a local plastic surgereon. So I thought what the hell, I would check it out. To make a long story short, bit the bullet and had the surgery last week. I will be paying for this procedure for a few years but it will be worth it. I feel great and doing this will help me with my self esteem and make me more comfortable with my new body. I am ready to get out and date again. So I am going to start living life to the fullest and feeling better about myself. Thanks for asking and thanks to everyone for all their support. Cheryl

    Thanks for all the encouraging words. Listen, if I can do it (took me 50 years) then anybody can do it. Again, thank you guys for everything.
