I have a new follower named April! Hi April, I just noticed that you have started to follow my blog, & I wanted to say welcome! You will be banded one month before I do, so I will definitely be following your blog to check on your progress. Especially since we are about the same weight going in to surgery. I am 5ft 3in tall, how tall are you? I attempted to comment on your blog, but was unable to. I will try again later. Anyway, congratulations on getting approved!
