I’d like to join a team. I have been putting on weight for years. I did lose some in an earlier challenge, so I want to try again. I’d give almost anything to get below 200 pounds! My daughter recently had the lap band surgery – omg – she is suffering. Yes, she’s losing weight, but she can’t eat anything. She heaves all the time. I feel so bad for her especially when last year she lost 35 pounds “just” by eating healthy! Let’s do it!
