Linda, what your Insurance CO wants is to see what your family DR has had you do to try to lose weight.Examples are "LOW FAT DIET, DIET PILLS,EXERCISE PROGRAM,NO SUGAR DIETS, HIGH PROTEIN, LOW CARBS ETC. and they would want to know what your success was for these. Sounds stupid but I had to do the same thing even though I had a 20 yr history of wt programs I had tried and failed!! Good Luck Nancy Poe
