4 Weeks Update

Nov 05, 2007

Well, it's been 4 weeks and 3 days since surgery and I am doing a lot better than I was.  So far I have lost 35 pounds and I am not sure about the inches yet.  I will update that later...  I returned to work today and it is great to be out among the living again.  I must be honest... At first I regreted this surgery completely, now I am dealing.  It was a BIG shock.  I thought I prepared myself for the surgery pretty well, Boy was I DEAD wrong.  But I am happy that I have had this done.  I can't wait to lose more weight.  Right now I am stalling out but I will be working out as much as I can so I don't get myself into too much of a rut. 

It's finally happening!

Sep 28, 2007

It's finally happening.  I got the call this morning with a surgery date.  I will be starting my new life 10/5/07.  My birthday is 10/16 and this is a great birthday present, a little early, but I'm not complaining.  This has to be the best "high" ever.  I can'twait to start this journey that I hear everyone talking about.

Waiting Game

Aug 01, 2007

Well, I just finished my 6 month diet and I am now waiting for insurance approval.  They submitted 7/24 and said it will most likely take about 2 weeks before we hear anything back from the insurance company.  My NUT says everything looked good and I should have no problem getting approved.  BUT, I am the type of person who hopes for the best and prepares for the worst.  Weird thing is I have not even thought about the possibility of NOT getting approved.  I just automatically assume that I am approved and am just waiting on a date.  This is a BAD place to be.  I hate the waiting game...

Decision Made

Well... After the positive feedback and the research that I have done... I made the decision.  I am definately going to get the surgery.  If ofcourse I am approved.  Will no more later....
