I finally got my posts to stay up. I don't know what the issue was when I started. It just kept bumping it back to drafts but it seemed to work itself out. I just gave it a day to think about it.
As for the weight loss thing, I was going to get the surgery, then I backed out. I'd rather lose it myself. I'm down 47 pounds now. I know people who have had the surgery, but it only lasts if you make the lifelong choices you have to make just to lose the weight without the surgery. It's a short-term solution like most fad diets, just a more dangerous way of going about it, especially if you get the one where it cuts out part of your intestine and you can't absorb all the nutrients you need naturally anymore. You have to make sure you take a huge amount of vitamins every day.
I don't mean to sound pessimistic about it because this could be a good option for some people, and I'm happy to hear it worked for your daughter. I hope she keeps up with it! The surgery just isn't for me.
As for Biggest Loser, I really don't watch TV. I've caught an episode here and there at a friend's house, but I'd rather be the one doing the exercise rather than watching someone else do it. :P Walking is my biggest thing right now. Walk, walk, walk.

In fact, I would be walking right now if there wasn't a monsoon that just rolled through.
