Hi, my name is Jennifer and my surgery is scheduled for July 10, 2007 with Dr Sloan in Fort Wayne.  

I decided over 5 years ago that this surgery was what I wanted and I have been trying since then to get it.  My old insurance wanted me to do an 18 month diet before they would approve me, so I began optifast.  Optifast wasn't too bad, but it was not a permanent solution for me.  I lost 40lbs and gained back 60.  I didn't begin gaining it back until I was very stressed out, but it came back with a vengance.  

This time I have a new insurance and the fact that I had been in optifast, plus all more co-morbidities and such, got them to approve me.  Which is good in a way, but bad in that I am THAT bad off.  

Well that is a little of my story, I will try to elaborate later.  Anyone with any questions feel free to ask!

Happy Losing to All.
