Hello, My name is Peg.  I just found out Friday that I have been pre-approved by the insurance company which for me is Blue Cross/Blue Shield  in NE.  I started late last year and it has been a process.

The thing that pushed me over was having double mastectomies and as I am heavy they do not really even show up.  I was a full figured woman before.  The surgeon told me that if I lose weight they will magically appear.  I am not sure about the magic part I just want to find them again.  I feel like I am playing where is

So, that is how I got here.  I will see the surgeon on July 20, 2011 to set a date for the surgery.  It will be a few weeks out.  I realized that I have been in a hurry up and wait mode and now I don't have a lot of time before it will actually happen.  I am really excited.   I have fears but I have more fears of what will happen if I do not do anything.

I have been depressed since the mastectomies and am finally coming out of that fog but am more afraid that I will continue to gain weight.  I am starting to have issues with my knees etc. and a year ago started using a sleep apnea machine.  I am excited and want to do what it takes to not live like this anymore.
