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 got to watch this on TV last night. It was very informative indeed. He was a brave sole to do what he did. It takes a real person to talk about this in front of millions of people. Its something we have seen here before and its sad. Not many will admit to it but when they do it shows how human we all are.

Thank you Craig again for making this site available to us to support each other and for last nights broadcast to let us all know.... about your struggle. I do hope this will help others before they fall into the same path.

I watched it also and give Craig a great big kudos. Like Vickie said it takes a lot of courage to share our personal struggles especially to a large audience! Thank you Craig for not only giving us this forum but for also giving us a part of yourself!

Hugs

Folks it was absolutely my pleasure. I consider it to be a gift to be as far along as I am, yet never want to forget the painful parts of the journey.

I am not sure about most of you, but i have an incredibly gifted "forget-er". I MUST remember the potholes I went though or I am certain to drive right through them again.

On a much lighter note, I have started doing some Video group chatting with many folks both in and out of the WLS community.

Please stop by and say hi sometime. I would love to meet you. You can "circle" me on Google+ by clicking on www.gplus.to/CraigThompson

Mega Blessings.
