[size=4]I am going to make this kind of quick because I really should be studying for school. I have had co-workers who have done well with the procedure which inspired me to do this, I have been battling with my weight for about 12 years now. I am a nurse and I am currently in school working on a master's degree to become a physician assistant which is basically like doing med school in two years. I just finished midterms and need to start studying for final exams which I will take just days prior to my surgery - my friends are going to Africa on a medical mission trip but I decided to do this instead on my Christmas break. I am doing this to improve my own health so I can help others to be healthy in the future. [/size]
