    I was at 5.9ml and lost another 2 kg (sitting at 103.9 kg) but this morning I got .2 ml out, making a healthy decision not to be too tight as I was scared of eating salad and trying most solid foods, i started looking for only sloppy foods and soups and thought thats all I could/ should eat. Just ate 1 and half carrot and god i loved chewing it and knowing it went down without a worry. Feeling alive and eating healthy and walking.
