Hello everyone!!
I just wanted to share my excitement for making this life changing decision. I am 38, Married to a wonderful man. I have four children ages, 19,11,8(son) and 5. Three girls and one boy. My decision to have the VSG procedure came to me late one night while searching the internet for new diet pills back in May of 2014. After about an hour of searching, I was constantly seeing pop-up videos on youtube of people that had the VSG procedure. I honestly had never heard of the VSG procedure before then. After I watched several videos and testimonials, I was sold. The next week I did further research and then began looking for the nearest surgeon in my area. The rest is history. I completed all the insurance requirements and my paperwork was submitted for approval on August 10th,  denied on August 15th and re-sumbitted on September 5th, Approved on September 12th!!!  i haven't been this happy since since my oldest graduated from high school this summer. I'm hoping for an October date. 
 My insurance will be covering the procedure 100%. I can truly say I am glad I chose this procedure and have no doubts. I am open to questions, so please feel free to follow me through my VSG journey!
