[font=georgia,serif][size=3]I am in the beginning stages of my sleeve journey. I visited this surgeon almost 2 years ago when I furst considered the surgery. Listening to my family, that was strongly opposed and that little voice of doubt inside I did not follow thru. But fast forward and now there has been more medications added, a few more pounds and a steely determination to follow thru to a better life. I look forward to no longer taking 10-13 pills a day and still not feeling healthy. I want to sat goodbye todiabetes, hypertension, joint aches, feet aches, and high cholesterol. I think more about the diseases that can be cured than the actual weight loss.[/size][/font]

[font=georgia,serif][size=3]I know that I will need ongoing supprt thru-out the entire journey. I have done my nutrtion counseling, I have my EGD next week and my Psych consult is in a few weeks and then we submit it all to the insurance company. I am hoping for a Spring Break Sleeve.[/size][/font]
