I promise, we won't hold that typo against you
(I've been dealing with insomnia pretty constantly for a few months now, so I DEFINITELY know you won't hear anything bad about typos from me, lol!) Welcome to the site, you will love it here! There is pretty much something for everyone (I think I say that a lot... but it's true!) and you will fit right in! Welcome!
Surgery (gallbladder had to be taken out) was one of the big things that actually made me fail the first time I really tried losing weight. It took me years
before I realized I'd hit rock bottom (I weighed so much more than I thought I had :|) and HAD to do something about my weight. This place has been a welcome beacon in my life, and I appreciate its presence more than I can say.
Other than that, love your enthusiasm -- that go get em attitude will be a big help on your journey
And once more, welcome!
