I should hear this week that cigna approved it!...knock wood. 

 

I'm trying hard to get organized... I already told my job I'm off for 2 weeks. I'll work from home a couple days the 3rd week  if I have to...

 

I already

My mind went blank...what should I ask her?? I'm literally freaking out. 

I was thinking-

what results to expect?

How small will she make the sleeve?

Robot or hands?

diet to expect after?

 

I know

I'm on the path to get sleeved May 6th... I still have to meet the surgeon on Apr 26th for my consult. I guess theyre assuming insurance will approve in time for May 6th? Plus I have to tell my job and go on short term leave... anyway...

So, Cigna requires 90 days of supervised diet & 3 NUT appointments (which I called my insurance to verify) However, my surgeons office insists on booking 4 appts w/ NUT b/c they say its "impossible" to schedule 3 appts within 90 days... mmmkkk. So anyw

I love this site. So many wonderful stories and such inspirational progress. I simply can't imagine how I'll look -40, -50, -60 lbs. Let alone -100. 

 

I know I've posted before about this- but the toughest thing for me is getting over

Hi all

I'm wondering about after surgery & eating at work? I work in a small department and we have a fridge- but I'm wondering if shakes would just be the easiest? 

Also, how to you handle the various stages of food at work? Is it easy

Sorry if I'm "over posting"... just trying to get real life advice for these things!

So, my paperwork came yesterday and my "tentative" surgery will be in May! YAYYY!

 

I've pretty much already decided to tell my employer what s

Hi all

First off, ..I know we're all different- different bodies, chemistry, situations... but I've been reading really fantastic success stories and I just wonder, is this really possible for me? Can I really lose 100#s? I really would like to

I first did medifast in 2008 with great success- I lost about 80lbs in a year .5...however I found it to be my only success on that program- meaning, I wasnt every nearly as successful any other time- I'd try it again, and again- and I'd lose a few lbs

I've read my policy over and over...I dont understand it. I'm not sure if I need to use my PTO first? Or, can I save my PTO time?

 

Are all policies the same?

 

I feel so dumb...but I'm afraid to ask my HR lady- not read

Thats honestly the one thing I cant get out of my head. Does the stomach just heal over the staples or something? Do they last forever?

 

I know I need to ask my surgeon- did any of you ask? What was the answer?

I have my nurse
