Help funding surgery
Apr 27, 2023
Wow, it's been 12 years since my DS. My life has changed so much and for the better in many ways. Finally I've decide I need to have some body modifying procedures. Truly I wanted to avoid it at all costs but my beats drive me crazy. They are so uncomfortable and give me so much grief with pain and rashes and sore shoulders from straps. I have a referral for a plastic surgeon and I am very nervous. Has anyone had luck getting their insurance to cover breast lifts or any of the contouring procedures? I am hopeful but realistic, my mother recommended I start one of those gofundme pages. I'm not great with the social sites and stuff. I'm not so sure how that will go or what to expect but I won't know if I don't try. Any advice or experience with a similar situation will be appreciated.
WOOT For DS!!!

As for food discomfort about the only thing gets me is milk/milk shakes. In which case it is quite tolerable. I partake in ANY food I want. I have had wheat bread, wheat thin chips, cake, ice cream, dark chocolate, even half a glazed donut! LOL, my point is I feel very lucky about how I am progressing. I DO NOT partake in candy or soda/carbonated beverages of any kind diet or not.
Vitamins have not been a problem since about a month out. I take the full Viatlady DS schedule, with Mag Oxide added at bedtime. I have very normal bowel movements. Usually one a day in the early day 7-11 am. Protein was a struggle trying to find a yummy one. I prefer pink grapefruit by Nectar Syntrax. I will try Lori's recipes very soon! I hear they are fabulous!!!
My hair is falling out now, but lightly so far...hope it doesn't get worse I have VERY thin hair LOL. I'll have to get a buzz-cut!!! WOWS: Fitting in the jeans I was wearing before my first pregnancy. SIze 18 down from 24-26 pant size. Lots of clothes I had stashed are fitting me now!!! I am way more active now, running and bouncing around with my family at the park. Without getting winded! My intimate relationship with my husband is much more FULLFILLING now, LOL! My life is just easier and better than ever with this weightloss. I am slowely becoming healthier everyday!
Thank You Dr. Inman for my fab DS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She'll be coming round the __ when she comes!

I wanted to let you in on what my diet consists of and how much exercise I do! Feel free to comment or throw me some advice!!!
As for the food:
chicken, tuna salad, cheese, boiled egg whites, pork, some beef, limited veggies, and lots of water and crystal lite!! I supplement with vitamins and Benefiber.
I attempt to keep my carbs under 100 grams a day, and my protein 100% or higher, fat also at 100%!
Calories range from 650 to 1600. on average though about 1000. As for exercise when ever it is nice out I go strolling with my Babe Tommy. The walk is 4 miles, some times a bit more! Takes me between 90 and 120 minutes, depending if we need to make stops!
Once a week usually on Fridays, I have a cheat meal, or specialty item, like a desert or something...I do not reward myself with food, instead I am going to get tattoos when I reach my weight loss goals!! My first goal is set at 75 lbs lost, or 225 lbs weight!
Not too far away huh???
Well there you have it, I am going to keep this up for a while and hopefully will be at supreme-ultra goal by then....140 lbs!!
Here I go again!
