I am a 41 year female married 4 years. I have struggled my ENTIRE life with my weight. My highest weight was 318lbs (15 years ago) I lost 120lbs 15 years ago and currenty weigh 243. I have made the decision to get the gastric sleeve because I do not want to contiune to yo-yo for the rest of my life. I have gained and lost the same 20-50lbs at least a dozen times. It's time to turn the page. Jan 6th 2011 my new life begins! I BELIEVE IN THE SLEEVE! I pray that ALL are sucessful!
