I was one of the kids born heavy. I was on my first of several diets before even starting school. I lost a lot of weight as a young man as a result of severe calorie restrictions and a crazy amount of exercise. That did not last too long. By 35 I was gaining again, kept riding my bike and walking everywhere, the weight just came back on. By the time Of the surgery I had gained back 130 pounds and was incapable of losing weight anymore, even though I was walking 7-9 kms to work and back everyday. I knew to myself the next milestone would be 350. So I opted for a sleeve. In Canada they are covered by our state medical system. There are no insurance letters etc. Once a bariatric surgeon or Obesity fellow decides you meet the criteria, you are in. Jul 7th, 2020 it happened. Never thought it would ever be so hard to drink four glasses of water in a day!
