Well my journey actually started 4-5 years ago. i was starting to notice i kept going up and up on sizes and it wouldnt stop, i finally had enough and started researching for weight loss pills, tricks, or surgeries.... Which lead me to the band after reading horror stories I kept looking, next was b12 shots but i saw first hand how big you get after so i stayed away from that, next was the vsg surgery... finally something that was perfect for me and i had health insurance so I would be covered right????? WRONG!!! I kept moving job to job to find the right employer that offered medical coverage and none would insurance kept denying my request for surgery even tho i suffered from club feet and asthma. Finally I found a great job that allowed me to save up easily and pay for surgery myself. To many doctors here in houston still wanted me to jump thru loops for surgery so I did additional research and found beliteweight...... Best decision I ever made, it took me 3 years to finally do it and they were so patient with me even tho I rescheduled my surgery for 3 years because i didnt feel ready..... Finally this year i was at my highest weight 390(WOAH) and I knew it was time no turning back, I finally went thru with it, started my 2 week pre op liquid diet next thing you know i was in the surgery bed getting my new pouch!!! Im happy to say it was the best decision ever and now im dropping lbs left and right and I feel amazing!!!! This new lifestyle is awesome......
