  1. I'm contemplating having the gastric sleeve.  Pretty sure I'm going to do it.  But I started this process twice before for the full gastric bypass and after I lost about 35 lbs felt I could do it without surgery.  That was almost 8 years ago.  I NEED to lose weight and have failed to complete the weight loss SO many times in my life.  Looking to see what others have gone through and get some more incentive.

      I first looked at doing the surgery back in 2004-End of year.. My job asked me to wait till spring 2005 and i did only to find out that effective Jan the insurance no longer covered it. I just left that job a year ago, so i had not thought about it at all till i had a new job and was more financially stable.. that i paid out of pocket for it.. Best decision i have made.. You will know in your heart when it is the right time for you.. it will feel natural and you will not have any worries at all... Good Luck on your decision.

      Why did you switch from the gastric bypass option to a sleeve? Just curious.
