Seattle finally called!!! But the appointments aren't until Feb 4th. So I guess I have some time to lose some weight before my appointments.

There is an appointment with a rheumatologist that deals with Sclero and a pulmonologist that deals with ILD and is also one of the transplant doctors. So anyway, will just enjoy the holidays with my family and keep up the work on losing weight, and we'll see what happens. I hope everyone has a very Happy Holiday Season! Keep Warm! I'll keep you all posted on the weight management. HUGS to All!

Susie, that is just wonderful news! That's, um, 2 months and 15 days (or 76 days) and at 2 lbs a week you could lose about 22 pounds more which sure puts you a lot closer to your goal. Definitely doable. We'll are be here counting calories with you and cheering you on.

That's great news- even losing a portion of the weight will help with your health. And it's not all that far away.
Have a warm holiday with your family.

Glad to hear it...good for you. That little extra time might end up being perfect for you to lose the weight you need to reach your goal after all. February will be here in no time at all. Good luck with everything and I hope you have a great holiday season too!

Thanks Everyone! I'm excited about the appointment...not necessairly about the travel part.
Hoping for decent weather. Will probably be driving. Our last little driving trip, I was so exhausted.
I hope everyone had a great Holiday weekend. We're ready, just have to wrap stuff for next Holiday.
