Honest karrie, she isn't. She was way over 300 lbs when she started this. 6 weeks on a liquid diet should have cleansed her system. And when someone is that over weight most of that first weight loss is water only, not fat.
And I under estimated the time which is more like 5 months. With a lap band that is ridiculous. She is not eating the way they recommend and has stopped losing weight. It is a head problem and she needs help desperately. One to two pounds a week is a healthy weight loss if you are doing it via diet and excerse... she should at least be losing that. She isn't.
