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.

Two answers to this.

1) Not, not really. People may tell you you're losing too much and look sickly only because they've never seen you under a certain weight, and you've exceeded that, even if you've still a ways to go till goal. Consider this as a kind of "optical illusion" so you don't have to worry about it, and can ignore other people's comments.

2) Yes, you've overdone yourself by losing too much weight through being afraid to increase your intake when it's appropriate to, during your journey, and your BMI gets too low--below 18.5. This is medically unsafe, and an anorexia issue which wasn't apparent before, and is the reverse side of the binge eating issue, has surfaced. These two are often the two faces of the same coin. You may need professional assistance in resolving this.

Good question! My upper chest to the top of my head look too thin ~ almost anorexic but from my waist down I look average. I wish we could lose where we want to lose from
