  1. Hi! My name is Toya, nice to meet you. I would love to be your buddy. You are right I am new to this, but I am doing a lot of research and trying to change my eating to more healthier diet. It is so hard....I crave everything that I should not be eating. To be eligible for UHC to pay for my surgery I had to see a dietician for 6 months and they want you to lose 10 lbs. When I saw the surgeon 2 wks ago he said I lost 19 pounds. Yippeee! I was so happy. Now im just waiting for UHC to send approval to surgeon, then I can get an actual surgery date. Im sorry to hear that you have to pay for your own surgery. Is it less expensive in Chile? Talk to you soon :-)
