Hello my name is Shelleen please feel free to follow my journey on YouTube. My starting weight was 247 pounds as of 5/29/12 I weighed in at 176 bringing my loss to 71 pounds in about 5 months. I will not be around the bush with you it was a rough start but i would do it all over again in a heartbeat because I feel so much better. You can also join me on facebook I am so open to answering any questions or helping you in any way possible.

Dr. Chae

I would have loved for him to listen and hear me out more with the complications that I had and with them being rare I always felt rushed talking to him.
