  1. Less than 2 weeks till surgery!

    Man I can't believe it is so soon now when it seemed so very far and almost was refused. I am on the liquid diet and will be happy when it is done and know I will never have to feel this hungry again. There is so much on my mind and so much I am looking forward to. I can't wait to just feel good and healthy, to not feel so hungry, to lose the weight, to not be restricted from doing things because I am to heavy, to wear shorts and a bathing suit and not want to hide and to shop wherever the heck ...
  2. "Successful Weight Loss with the Gastric Sleeve" by Dr. Guillermo Alverez

  5. 3 Month requirement done

    Hi Everyone
    Ok so hit my 3 month requirement for my insurance company on July 29th. The nurse said that my paperwork was ready for submission and I should hopefully have an answer by my next appointment 8/23/11. I am so nervous and afraid. I have all these questions going through my head like, what if I get denied, or what if I missed something. I pray that I get approved. I need this so badly. One more week.
