    Default Widow to Weight Loss

    Hello all,
    I lost my husband 2 years ago, due to lower back pain, I was told the only help I could get was to lose weight. My insurance would not cover the sleeve. So I decided to pay for my surgery, and start a new way of life freeing pain both body and soul. This is a new journey for me, and would like to share with others who have lost a love one, and decided to work on themselves. Maybe we could help each other, of just share stories to inspire a healthy NEW life.

    So sorry about the loss of your husband, I can't even imagine. As far as your weight, the sleeve is a lifesaver. I was also self pay, but I figured it was only about half the price of a new car. My health is worth half a car! You will be thrilled. Best of luck to you.

    Plus when you are self-pay you are super careful not to regain. You remember what you invested, and don't want to lose it.
