Yeah, and they also require a 10 % weight loss, and I'm really struggling with it, the scale doesn't seem to be moving. I'm trying not to be discouraged. I have to continue with my appts until I reach 10 %.

I had my surgery on July 5th 2012. It was the best thing I ever did. I have gone from a size 22 to a 14 so far and I feel great! We can support each other:). Btw if you're a book reader I have started a book club that will be starting on the 13. You should join us! Let me know and I can send you the details

I'm in Cleveland and just starting the process. I met with the Surgeon at St Vincent and have started my 6 month supervised diet that my insurance company wants me to do. This just seems like its going to be forever now that I have made the decision to have the surgery.

Hi No I did not have surgery yet nor did they even set a surgery date. I am in early stages but I am sure Ben-Meir

is my Dr. I went to the seminar at Holiday Inn by Belden Village Mall in North Canton on Apr 8. My patient Advocate Diane called and set me up to see Dr Ben-Meir, Dr Solomon, and Nutritional appts all on same day since I live further away. So on May 3 (this upcoming Friday) I'll be at their Cleveland office. She said it will be a long day since I'll be having 3 different appts. I decided to go with their PCP for 6 month medically supervised diet since Ben-Meir said at seminar that when you go with your own primary care physician for the 6 month diet the offices can send in to insurance either incomplete info or wrong info and insurance rejects it. Then you have to 6 months over again but their Dr knows how to fill it all out right. Its going to take long enough to wait for complete insurance

requirements to go through so I chose to go with their house PCP.

Have you had your surgery? If so how far out are you? How did you like Ben-Meir? His staff etc. Iwill send this to your private messages to be sure you get my reply.

Hope all is well with you

Laura
