[color=rgb(51,51,51)][font='Trebuchet MS'][size=3][background=rgb(250,250,250)]Hola![/background][/size][/font][/color]
[color=rgb(51,51,51)][font='Trebuchet MS'][size=3][background=rgb(250,250,250)]Just a quick introduction. Like many of you, Ive struggled with my weight; yoyo dieting, diet pills (off the shelf and prescription) numerous weight loss clinics, etc. Now that I am a little older, I find it even harder to lose weight, and stay healthy (my knees hurt, I'm tired all of the time). Im tired of losing 40, gaining 60. I honestly believe I have totally screwed up my metabolism from all of the torture i have put my body through. [/background][/size][/font][/color]

[color=rgb(51,51,51)][font='Trebuchet MS'][size=3][background=rgb(250,250,250)]I contacted the my local bariatric physican, attended the seminars, did all of the insurance requirements, and ended up paying 100s of dollar in copays and uncovered medical expenses just for the insurance company to deny me. (BCBSIl - no proof of trying to manage high blood pressure.)[/background][/size][/font][/color]

[color=rgb(51,51,51)][font='Trebuchet MS'][size=3][background=rgb(250,250,250)]Anyway, i received a quote yesterday to get a VSG locally for $19,000. Self pay option. I can't swing that.[/background][/size][/font][/color]
