    • Stacey W.

For me, in MN, I am thinking ot retiring at in S. Carolina if I had a roommate-all fitness and healthy everything all year round

  • I found this article to be very helpful. I prefer a non-surgical approach. I actually don’t think my condition is severe enough to have surgery. So I’ll look into these. I’m also going to try hypnosis. A friend of mine lost over 20 pounds in six weeks using hypnosis. And the lady she went to does group sessions, which are much more affordable. My insurance won’t pay for it, but I can use funds from my HSA to reimburse myself. If anyone is interested in joining me, the next session begins June 23 in Westland. Details are on the web site


    4 Tuesdays Beginning JUNE 23; 7:00-8:00 pm
