oh Kayley - that's WONDERFUL news!!!!! now, be sure to keep them in the loop about what to expect. The better prepared they are for changes, the better off you ALL will be.
And remind them - you will have a difficult first 3 months. you'll likely have a 6-18 month period in which you'll have the best chance for losing weight, and it's really important that you stay focused to make the most of it.
and then afterwards, while you can't ever relax [because EVERYONE who succeeds in weight control has to follow some rules or other], you will be able to have small amounts of EVERYTHING, and that includes a little birthday cake, a little chocolate, a few fries.
you will NOT be suffering [well, at least not after the first few months!]
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
