I had to go to the bathroom and shed a few tears OF JOY at work a few minutes ago. I have been approved according to my insurance company for my lap band! My bariatric center has not received the approval yet but they will.
What a life changing experience this has been and will continue to be... I have completed my 6 months of supervised monitoring and weight loss and have made significant changes that will support me along my new path to a healthier life. I must say I feel like I am hatching out of an egg and the best it yet to come. Please don't think that I am not being objective about what the future holds because I have researched this for literally years. I know that I have challeges to face in the future but I also know that I am strong and will survive the slippery slopes!
Only one person knows about this at my work but I will come out once I have a date scheduled. It could be in three weeks.
Just needed to share with others moving down the same path that I am.
