performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

Hi - I'm orginally from Ohio and currently live in Huntsville, AL with my husband. I have four children and four grandchildren. I quit smoking in Jan of 2005 when i found out i was going to have my first grandchild. Although i had always struggled with my weight - after that it just piled on and on and on and on. Now it want it off so i can enjoy these grandchildren. I had lapband surgery in Feb '11 - since then i've lost 25 pounds. Just got my 4th fill 2 weeks ago and i think i've finally hit my sweet spot. So i'm ready to buckle down and get the rest of this weight off.
