Good for you for losing the 20 pounds and making a great choice with regards to the lapband! You are so right to want to continue towards your goal without the surgery since you were so successful thus far! What a jerk of a dr to try to discourage you - it's all about his bottom line :( Good luck with all your goals. Hope the bike becomes your new best friend! :) 2452 days ago

Happy Monday!! I would like to officially welcome you to SPARKpeople!
One piece of advice: Don't forget that the scale doesn't always tell the whole story.
Have you taken your starting measurements and logged them in your tracker?? (Found in my TOOLS under Weigh-in and other measurements)
Then, measure once a month. You may just be amazed at what you discover! Especially if the scale isn't reflecting your effort.
