    Why Dud U Choose Vgs

    When I started this program 3 weeks ago I weighed 281. I use "My Fitness Pal" to record everything. And I plan to join a local "Weight Watchers" group this coming Thursday. Next Monday I have my 2nd appointment at the " Help Program". I am very excited and very nervous. Also at my first visit I was told that the surgeries available to me are the lap band and VGS if the choice is mine to make then I will definitely choose VGS.

    Why Dud U Choose Vgs

    Thank You everyone for your replies. My husbands insurance company say they will not do the surgery for obesity. I do see posts where BC/BS is paying for some surgeries, thank goodness. I recently found that the Native American Cherokee Tribe will help pay for my surgery. I joined a program called the "Help Program" with the Cherokee Tribe. At my first appointment I learned I have to loose 30 lbs, join a weight reduction group, start a daily exercise program, record my food, water, & exercise on a daily basis. I am 58 y/o female, 5'4", & weigh 267.

    Hi everyone, I am a 58 y/o woman, 5'3", 281 lbs, and a 50 BMI. Right now I have good BC/BS Insurance both as a primary and as a secondary, and I have been trying for about 8 months to get their support for my surgery without success. Now I have found that one of the native American tribes is willing to pay for my surgery. Their rules are: 1 join and attend a weight loss group 2. Exercise daily and keep a journal 3. Attend all appointments with the physician who will refer me to the surgeon 4. Keep a daily journal of the foods I eat 5. Loose 30 pounds There is a weight watchers group in the small rural town wherein live, I plan to join them. I have been walking 30 min on the weekend and riding the stationary bike 15 min twice a day at work. My next appointment is October 21st. I have been keeping a journal of my food using " my fitness pal.com". I have learned a lot about the number of calories I eat at this site. My goal is to loose the 30 pounds in 2 months. I know this all looks good but it is only my first week and I need friends to guide me and hold me accountable.
