I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

    Thanks for your kind message re DH Bday but truly . . . I've received more than I've given. Quite an exceptional person (I'd think so even if NOT married to him!)

    I have very few limitations. The biggest one is no lifting over 15-20 pounds. I can't do that anyway! LOL. Also, try not to get the eye area of your face wet because plain water is very irritating to the eyes. I use two different drops 4 times a day for each. Yesterday, I spent most of the day sleeping and/or laying down. Today I am up and around. I am even driving but nothing too strenuous. I will continue in the same vein until next Wednesday. Then the doctor will give me a new and different prescription for new glasses. I can't wait!
