Talking I had my 6 month checkup today and.....

I've officially lost 92.7pds which 80% of my weight,my Dr. told he would've expected that at one year out. He was so proud of me he had the biggest smile on his face during my visit. He told me out of 4 stars he could rate me as a patient I would get 5. After he left the room I cried tears of happiness, I couldn't believe I was succeeding at this and I know it wouldn't have been this way if I hadn't had the advice and support from those of you who responded to my posts.




Oh yeah before I forget the mystery of my back pain is solved I have sludge and some gravel in my gallbadder, on medicine for 6 months and the pain that I've had should go away in 2 days

No more muscle relaxers,no more fainting and no more breaking toes

Hey Jiffy,

Come to find out they were caused by the muscle relaxers after all, the ones my family Dr. gave me for my back pain.My back pain was caused by my gallbladder. It turns out I'm overly sensitive to my gallbladder I just have sludge and gravel in it. I can't imagine the type of pain someone would have with stones in it.

My toe hopefully will be healed by Christmas, I can't wait to wear heels,the shoes this fall are so cute
