thank you everybody for all your support...it so helps!!! I am so excited on my weight loss this week......I know that won't happen' again with the water weight loss and stuff...but still it's 20 less pounds I'm having to carry.....and I think the norm now is 2 to 5 pounds a week...which I will take that too...

Staci, I just finally listened to your video blogs because I always read your blogs at work and can't listen to them. I'm sorry to hear about the EKG news, but it looks like you are taking the right steps towards being healthy. Hang in there! Be patient and it will be worth it.
