I went home, cried it out, and decided it was time to do something—but I had already been on every diet under the sun: Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, liquid diets, low-carb diets. Nothing had ever worked for me before. So, I decided it was time to … [Read more...] about ‘I Lost 150 Pounds After I Had A Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy’
