Like many of us, I have struggled to control my weight for almost half my life, and although I won a few battles, I recently realized that I cannot win the war without help. I was one of those people who thought that I could control my weight on my own. I have tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, NutriSystem, Dr. Fuhrman, the mediterranean diet, diet pills and supplements. And after spending thousands of dollars on these programs, I am not heavier than I have every been.

The problem is that now I am scared. I am pre-diabetic, I have high blood pressure and with my continual increase in weight, I am now taking three different medications to control my hypertension. My biggest fear is that the insurance will not approve me because my bmi is only 34.64.
