I am a 69 year old great grandma to a 1 year old. I am having this surgery to help with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, reflux, and kidney issues. Wow, thats a lot of reasons. I want to live a healthy lifestyle. I have been on the plus side my whole life and I wish I could have done this a long time ago. My daughter and granddaughter have both had this done. My daughter over 5 years ago and granddaughter 6 weeks ago, so I know it works. I can't imagine what it will be like to fit into normal size clothes. I am walking now, which is a miracle for me who hates exercise. Still have to force myself. At present, I am doing it every other day for sure. I am also trying protein replacement for one of my meals in anticipation of my week before surgery,
