It has truly been the best thing that I have ever done for myself. I am more aware of my true self now. I am also more aware... READ MORE

I went through the program with Kaiser, and I had a $500 copayment, I don't know what it would cost if I paid for it. I went through the required classes, but everything is so focused on surgery day that everything else goes in one ear and out the other. I lost 150# and had tons of extra hanging... READ MORE

My goal is to be down 100# in 2 years. Not going to be as easy as people think but ready to not feel like I'm waiting for a horrible medical issue to start from being so overweight. Ready to feel good about myself. Ready for the help that the Gastric Sleeve will give me to kickstart my new life! READ MORE
