The class was very informative and exciting, but I wa troubled hearing some people speaking of how they could just cut up burgers and pizza small enough to consume.I was thinking, with that mindset they wont loose any weight. Thats something to think about atleast a year or so down the line once your life gets back to normal not before you even loose a pound.
My next appointment is June 25, 08 and then one to go . During this time (june) I hae to make several other appointments and get those esults. With BCBS I have a $50 co-pay with a specialist so, by me spacing them out I can do one appointment per month and be finished in August. This is because I already have a Pulminologist.
Ohh the best part is I lost 4 lbs without even trying. She also gave me samples of UNJURY so I will be trying it over the course of a week or so. When I used to body build I used to use Body Fortress so I am pretty experienced in Protiens, but I am interested in the bullets and the already made versions found on this site. well may the best be with you on your journeys.

Well I went to my consult yesturday with Dr. Strom, and it was amazing. I already had the paperwork filled out because I went to their site and printed it so it cut down on wait time. But if I didnt fill it out prior or needed help the office manager will fill it out for you and she will just ask the questions.
I went into the room and got weighed and BP taken, then the doc came in and asked what type of surgery (bypass or band) did I want I said bypass. He began to go get his giant chart and explain everything to me. (as if I hadnt already did my research, lol) but it was nice to see.
He then took me into his office and we began to fill out my paperwork for the insurance company, he also had his head nurse there to expidite the process. They filled out everything out and helped me to understand the whole process.
i got my date right then and there, he said because of my co occuring he said i should get an approval.
He began to set dates for my other required appoints. I need 3months of nutritionist classes, my first one is this Saturday. I already have my Pulminologist so I met that requirement already and the others are scheduled throughout this 3 month waiting period.

This place is awesome. Also they say complete all the necessary appointments and you can havfe the surgery for as quick as 3 months. They also have been working with my particular insurance (BCBS of NJ) and they get 98% approval on the first try. So never the less I can not wait til next month.
