I'm sure my story is very similar to most people who have struggled with their weight for most of there lives.
I have been overweight on and off for years but I have come to a place in my life where I want to start living life as a smaller healthier person.
I seem to be one of the luckier ones as my insurance approval went fairly smooth. From the time I decided to move forward, it has only been about 4 months and my surgery is scheduled for December 08. Only a couple small hitches, but for the most part every thing somehow lined up and and has gone smoothly to date. I have learned a lot from my journey thus far and I know my new life will begin shortly.
