Did anyone see the show last night about the nurse? It really hit home with me, especially the part that we tend to take care of everyone else and put ourselves last (as so many of us do). I would love to see if any of those ppl have kept their weight off.

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

I use to work in a Nursing Home so . . . NURSES ARE MY HEROS' in any setting, but it was inspirational to see them lose. Yes Rose - this means you! And all other nurses on this forum.

I saw that one too. It is so true that the nursing profession isn't very good at taking care of themselves. Y'all deserve the same TLC you give your patients!!!!
