I've always been 'muscular', 'healthy', 'sturdy'... 'thick'.  I've never been light, little... or girly.  Like so many of you, I've tried everything from pills and protein drinks to exercise plan after exercise plan... after nutrional counseling.  The list is endless.  I've even had some successes!... short-lived as they were.  And because my BMI was under 40 (for five minutes) during the past two years, my insurance company denied my pre-authorization request.  They're waiting for me to get diabetes, like everyone else (over 30) in my family.  But I'm not waiting.  I'm willing to pay for this procedure if I have to take out a loan to do it.  With degenerative disk disease, three ruptured disks, two back surgeries, and the years passing by... I can't exercise the way I used to.  I can barely hold myself up; I have to lean over when I'm standing.  I need help... and I think I've found it.  Please cross your fingers for me.  I'm hoping that someday very soon, my time will come.
