I just turned 28 years old and I decided to make a 30 before 30 list.  On my list was "losing 100 lbs" becuase I'm tired of the roller coaster of up and down, up and down and recently it's been up and up and up... Then, NEWSFLASH there is something out there to help people like me to succeed at weight loss without the roller coaster! I met with Dr. Bell on Feb. 1st and had my consultation, the next week I did my psych evaluation and blood work.  The following week I did my EKG and then Feb. 21st I had my surgery.  My insurance does not cover WLS and since I was a cash payment it was VERY fast from start to finish.. Now, here I am!
