[size=4][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]I have been overweight all of my adult life, actually it started in my early teens. So I've always had a desire to lose weight and tried just about every diet out there. It seems that the only time I was able to lose a significant amount of weight was when I was pregnant and that was due to severe morning sickness with both pregnancies.[/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif] I started hearing about the Gastric Bypass about 15 yrs ago and did extensive research on it and it scared me so I decided that it wasn't for me. As the years passed, as a researcher by nature, I continued to look at the bypass but still was too afraid to go thru with it, but I noticed new procedures opening up, like the lap-band. Of course I did my research on that too and went to informational meetings and thought this was something I would like to pursue. That was probably 7-8 yrs ago and I was never able to get it done for whatever reasons. Well about 2 yrs ago I was on tract to get the lap-band only to realize that the Dr. didn't accept my insurance for the lap-band, but wanted to do the gastric bypass instead and once again I did not want that so I stopped my progress. In the mean time, I was able to lose about 40 #'s and gain about 20 back. I have since heard and researched the Gastric-Sleeve and am now on my journey to receive this procedure. It has been a long journey and I'm just beginning a new me.[/font][/color][/size]
