[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]I am so ready for the craziness of my yo-yo dieting to end. I hit my highest weight 301 and that was the [/font]
[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]brick wall that made me realize that I needed more help than I could give myself. I have done every diet and [/font]
[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]it would always come back to I was not getting full enough and I would just say "screw it".[/font]
[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]I am also allergic to fresh veggies and fresh fruit. No, really , I am. I've been this way since the 6th grade. So, dieting has been very hard. I can eat cooked though. Organic sometimes makes me itch and swell as well.[/font]
[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]I've been researching [/font][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]for two years and followed two of my friends go through the sleeve process and I know now what you can and can't [/font][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]do as far as eating. Everyone has a story, and being here has also helped me get prepare. I am currently waiting on [/font][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]insurance approval and I hope to get sleeved sometime in June 2013. [/font]
