I have struggled with my weight my whole life.  Tried all of the diets, even the killers like Phen-Phen.  I lave lost weight many times only to put on more.  I got married to a wonderful woman in Jamaica last October.  I lost 65 pounds before my wedding only to put on all of it and 10 more since then, been unemployed for lst 5 months, so that has not helped.  I have been scared to do this, and always put it off. My wife has great insurance, so one day I submitted my insurance information online and my journey has begun.  My insurance pays 100%, so I am lucky in that regard.  I have been to first appointment, and had psych eval and nutrition consult yesterday.  I am so ready to do this.  I want my life back.
