TalleyHo, it sounds very drastic to go through a procedure just to lose 35 pounds, I understand it's a huge issue for you, but to those of us with a 3 figure weight issue would love to have your problem
I have to say that when I was researching into having surgery I came across Medifast
and thought, Mmmm lets try that and the results were spectacular, I lost 130 pounds in 18 months, the first few months were spectacular, but then I lost my Mum, and lost my way for a few months, then had to get back on board. With 35 pounds to lose, a couple of months full commitment would see that gone, just something to think about.
Now the down side, 18 months further on and I ma back to square one, how freaking stupid is that. Next Monday is the first day of another new start for me, and I'm still deciding what diet to go with, but it needs to work, I HAVE to get back into some of my show clothes ASAP
Rhonda, tell me more about the gastric sleeve, haven't heard of that one,
