I WAS STRUGGLING WITH MY WEIGHT FOR MANY YEARS AND RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. FINAILLY I WAS TALKING TO MY COUSIN WHO IS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD AND SHE WAS SAYING THAT INSURANCES WILL NOW PAY FOR THE SURGERY. I WENT FOR A CONSULTATION ON 2-17-10 AND HAD MY SURGERY ON 3-25-10 SO THANKS TO MY EX-HUSBAND THAT STILL CARRIES ME ON HIS FEDERAL INSURANCE I WAS APPROVED IN NO TIME AND NOW IM ON MY 3RD DAY POST-OPT AND IM FEELING GREAT. I HAVEN'T BEEN HUNGRY AND HAVEN'T HAD A PROBLEM STICKING TO MY FULL LIQUID DIET, SO FAR SO GOOD. UNLIKE OTHER DIETS OVER THE YEARS I HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED ANY HEADACHES FROM LACK OF CALORIES. I AM A WORK OUT CHICK SO I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT GETTING BACK IN THE GYM AND HAVING A LITTLE EXTRA HELP IN LOSING THE WEIGHT THIS TIME. I DO FEEL LIKE THIS MAY BE A CHALLENGE BECAUSE IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE A CURE ALL PROCEDURE. SEEMS LIKE YOU STILL HAVE TO PUT IN LOTS OF WORK ON YOUR OWN. SO TIME WILL TELL AND I WILL KEEP EVERYONE POSTED ON MY SUCCESS. STARTING WEIGHT IS 240LBS. VACATION IS IN JUNE SO HOPE TO BE DOWN AT LEAST 20-30 BY THEN. IM TRYING TO BE REALISTIC ABOUT MY GOALS BUT WOULD LIKE TO SEE AT LEAST 8-10 POUNDS A MONTH FOR THE FIRST 50LBS, HOWEVER AS LONG AS THE SCALE IS GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION I'LL TAKE WHATEVER I CAN GET.
