[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4]My name is Faye. I reside in Jackson, Mississippi. I've been battling my weightloss battle for years. Bootcamps, Weight Watchers, Atkins, NutriSystem, SlimFast, low-fat, no carbs, no sugars, no sodas.....You name it, I've tried it. Exercising on and off; off and on; spin classes, step aerobics, walking, jogging, no eating after 8-unbelievable. No problems with hypertension, diabetes-just a short chubby person. [/size][/font]

[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4]I decided to attend several seminars over a two year period and made up my mind from there. Literally cried at one meeting when seeing people saying insurance had approved them to have surgery. Listening to people with similar problems to me with the same goal. Initially, I wanted the gastric sleeve but insurance would only cover the gastric lapband or gastric bypass. [/size][/font]
