Well i guess not all my info from the last profile came thru....so i will start a new one......

And it begins...........
5 feet 0 inches
BMI 48.5

i have done all the blood work pap's and nutri visits however the waiting list for PNMC is 2 years or more.....and i cant wait that long. being on this site i have seen the ways around this. i will go to a PCM and see if i can get a referal outside. if not i guess tricare stand here i come! i really hate being inthe middle of HMO's i think that your body your choice. but i will play the game for the moment....so...here we go...


good news and bad...well tricare prime told me that they do not refer outside for WLS so....i called the doc office i choose Dr. Glen Moore. i spoke with Tammy at the clinic she was so so nice...
and informed me on my new !st apointment. YEAH YEAH

May 16th. and then after that i will go to diet lady and then off to more aplointments.

i am a little worried about the cost.....but i am feeling good about changing my life and bettering myself for my kids and family...i know that being able to run with my kids will be a great deal. and you cant put a price on that.....
so tomar i am going to the tricare offices and changing to stand. and will get the low down on cost. and what 20% is...i was told by Tammy that i would pay about 50$ on the 250 visit and i have a cap of $1000 so hey i can pay that i mean really i would pay for everything all of it to have the chance to be great!


well....i know i have not updated so i am....this is the deal i have a doc. Dr.Glenn Moore. at the Bon Secourse Health Center At Harbour View. he seems nice thier staff is great..i was going to go may 20th but my husband had to leave out of town...and i had no sitter....but...i have a new apointment..june 1st so next thursday i am really siked...

i was told by the apointment lady that due to the fact that i have done everything but physc...and xray i will be closer then i think...so...i am off to get the letter script so i can get an xray and when i have it in hand i will swap to tricare standard...and then i will go to phsyc. and poof she said i'll have a date.. i am shooting for aug.....i know that is far but i am ok with the LAST FAT SUMMER

cant wait how cool is it for me to know that i will RUN with my kids and chase them instead of sitting down cause i am to fat...love it

ok so 2 days tech 3 i was out and home...feeling no so bad....the first week but then the second week i was tired, but the 4h week i was in pain....thought something was wrong bugged the nurses and Dr Moores office lol, again and they said HUNI THAT IS YOUR AB WALL HEALING lol silly me
