I am Candace and I have been on this journey for the past 6 months. Initially I was just supporting my husband but when I went to the appointment with him I considered the gastric sleeve for myself. I was 10 lbs shy of bmi of 35 and I had to gain weight through out the 3 month visit. I have been on this roller coaster of Weightloss since I was 10. The smallest I have ever been is 126lbs in college and have gained and lost weight every other year. I am finally trying to end this cycle and maintain my Weightloss!!! I will be sleeved on December 30,2013 and I can't wait!!! I have been denied 3 times submitted by the provider and waited for an answer for 3 months however I persevered and appealed and wrote the letter myself and was approved in 1 week!!!
