Been over weight for 14 years plus. Tried all types of diets they would work at first then I would gain all my weight back. I was losing hope and getting sicker by the day. I knew I needed to do something. I found out about the Gastric sleeve through a friend who had it done and she looked awesome. I started to research about it, I looked up videos pros and cons. Untill I finally made up my mind. My next step was finding a doctor and seeing if my insurance would pay for it. My journey began in September of 2011 and I was sleeved in January of 2012. I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life...
