What Happens When You Lose 100 Pounds? Perhaps you are in pre-gastric bypass surgery mode and deliberating what the new you might look like and feel like. You might have an image of a slimmed down version of the current you, happily shredding your physician’s prescription pad. Those blue slips that had been traded for meds to control high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes are no longer needed, and your vendetta with poor health is put to rest at last. The doctor’s pad has been quartered and disabled and a stake driven through its’ little blue heart. You are healthy now.

Better yet, you may vision yourself applying your toe to your employer’s forehead as he begs you to reconsider your resignation.
