There are days that I feel like I got this...I am on the mend...don't really think about food...getting my water in and doing good with my choices. I have been consistently losing weight since my pre-op diet and everyone says that I am doing well.
Then I have a day like today that I slept till 10:30am, didn't get my protein or water in and felt like after two bites from dinner I was stuck. :( The days like today make me question what I have done...will this be successful or will I do something to screw this up too.
I got denied originally from insurance because they said I was non-compliant with my band...I lost 80 lbs but gained it back after I got the fluid and band taken out. Are they right? Can I not do this and days like today are just preparing me to fail at losing weight yet again??
I know that b$tch in my head that beats my self esteem up has get ahold of me today...she won't stick around but I am glad that I have a place like this to come and vent, worry and confide.
I can do this....I can do this....I can do this!!!!

In about 26 hours I will be getting prepped for surgery. I am excited and very nervous about tomorrow. I want everything to go smoothly and for my kiddos, parents and hubby not to have to worry. I am doing this so I can be with them for many years to come and I would be lying if I said that the surgery didn't scare me.
I'm tired of struggling with my weight...I know that this surgery isn't a magic answer but I know that is it is going to be a tool that I work the heck out of!!
My prayer is that things go smoothly, that my family and friends are comforted as they wait tomorrow, that my dr's hand is guided by the hand of God and that tomorrow is the start to something AMAZING in my life!!
Hugs my friends!

Found out today that my surgery will not be the end of March...it will be NEXT WEEK! I am scheduled for 4pm on 2/27 and I can't wait to get on the road to the healthier, happy, thinner me!!
My stomach has butterflies....I don't think that it has really set in yet....

I finally received my letter that my appeal had been approved and I can have surgery!! I am so stinkin' excited!!!
I am hoping that I can get a surgery date in the next month and be on the road to losing! I know my DH has been struggling since he had surgery and I didn't so I am hopeful that this will be good for both of us and we will be successful together.
So much to look forward to! Trying to be patient and not call the dr's office right this minute...but I might have to go ahead so these butterflies will slow down in my tummy!
Yea me! :)

Well I have had my second meeting with the nutritionist yesterday and he said I am doing great! After my appt with him on Dec 13th I will be resubmitted to insurance and hopefully get approval since the lapband is already out and is not a factor anymore.
Hubby's RNY surgery got moved up to 11/19 so he is doing great and working hard at doing what he should...I am so proud of him.
Hopefully I will be joining him on the loser's bench very soon!

Well I have still not been approved for my RNY surgery. I am completely frustrated and wish that I had the ability to make the insurance company just "see" why I need this and want it so bad!
I am in the process of seeing a different nutritionist to hopefully get approved in a month or so. I am getting my band taken out on Monday...I am excited and sad too. I had so hoped that this lapband would be my answer to losing weight. When I told my new nutritionist, Patrick, that I felt like a weight loss failure he said he didn't believe in weight loss failures...he said that there were only weight loss roadblocks and once you knew what worked for you then everyone could have weight loss success. From his mouth to God's ear!
My hubby is having his RNY surgery on Monday (he is on here too...IAMSHANET) :) I am so excited for him! I know he is nervous and all of us have issues with food and I think that he is worried that his relationship with food is going to change. He knows that it is a good thing but it is still a bit overwhelming for him and I pray that everything goes smoothly for him Monday.
