I agree, and I hope my comment didn't come off as being negative! I have a friend who has lost close to 100lbs with WLS and she does work very hard, and sometimes still gets her butt kicked in weight loss challenges that run on another forum by people who haven't had it. Definitely still requires work and determination!
