    Re: Lower BMI going in Jan 19th, any advice?

    I agree that it's not easy to find info on lower bmi folks - probably because they might get blasted when they reach out and have the guts to share their stats. I'm a bmi of 30-31 and I have 20...

    vickybeads,
    I did indeed call my sister's surgeon, but he said he's hands are tied because the hospital that he practices out of is strict about the guidelines whether you pay cash or not. I agree...
