Hi! I'm just starting my research and viewing a webinar with a local bariatric group tonight. I got my first "when are you due?" last week from someone I hadn't seen in 2 years. Honestly I think saying back to her "nope..just fat" was a big lightbulb moment for me. That same day I looked up my insurance plan to see what was covered and discovered that my BMI just qualifies me since I have co-morbidities. My PCP has been on me for years to lose weight and I've been on the same roller coaster for 10 years of trying every pill, diet, exercise fad, etc.
Will be anxious to see how you do since I'm also starting with a lower BMI.
Best of luck!!
