Well, now it's finally time. I am officially 100 pounds over weight. There's no need to look back at all of the things I've done wrong, all of the diets I have failed, all of the tags I have chopped off in hopes that my wonderful hubby wouldn't notice the real size. There's no need to dwell on the past, I decided this week that I must do something about this. I have been hovering around this 240+ range for over two years (almost three). Judging from the research i have done , this procedure seems to be the "tool" I need to finally get my life , health & body back. My cousin works for the surgeon that I will probably choose to do my surgery. She speaks highly of him and of course the practice which is Norfolk Surgical Group, in Norfolk, VA. I am ready , I have Tricare - praying for favor that it will be approved! I'vealready been diagnosed with hypertension and PCOS...no need to wait and add anymore. I will be attending my first info session with the surgeon Monday evening 8/16/2010...I am SOOOOO READY ! Blessings, Chops wife- T
