Laura- I hope you don't mind if I ask a question or two
You seem to be doing great losing weight on your own- 20lbs in 4 months is awesome! This is absolutely NONE of my business and you don't have to answer me but why are you considering weight loss surgery? It is apparent that you can do it on your own! I have known so many people that have had MAJOR complications during and after having weight loss surgery. It honestly scares me when I hear of someone else who wants to have it done.
My other question would be- Will you lose more weight or lose it any faster if you have the surgery? It just seems so invasive when you are doing so well on your own.
