I saw the surgeon who did my spinal fusion last year for my 1 year check up and he was absolutely amazed at my weight loss. Said it was the best thing I could have done for myself.

He also told me that for every pound of extra weight, it puts an additional 9 lbs of pressure on your ankles and feet. So I just had to do the math, of course, 9x95=855 lbs of pressure no longer on my feet. Wow.
