Here I am again...I was pretty active on this site just a little over a year and a half ago. Lost 60 pounds, the lightest I have been for more than ten years! I ate 1600 calories a day and exercised-a lot. Some would consider it the old-fashioned way. I was able to get my breast reduction surgery in summer of 2008 that I wanted for years and years. However, my recovery did not go to well. I almost died twice and took a nasty fall down a flight of stairs. Broke a finger and tore up my left ankle. Now I am suffering with two herniated disc in my lower back. I gained every pound back by the holidays. I went on South Beach spring of '09 and was able to lose 50 lbs but plateaued. I gained about 20 lbs back since I went off the diet in August 2009. December 3, 2009 I started HCG. I lost 40.2 lbs in my first round. My next round started March 1, 2010.

I now have had 7 surgeries in the last six years and I am determined to have just one more, a tummy tuck-that can wait till next year though! I have no thyroid now and I am considered pre-diabetic. Only on meds now for my thyroid, thankfully! I have a lot on my plate and a lot of reasons to lose the weight-mainly my health. Looking forward to chatting with others and beating the FAT battle!!!
