Hi there... I am completing the process to get approved by my insurance company. Believe it or not, I weigh 274 lbs right now. If I am approved, my insurance will pay 100% of the surgery cost.
Right now, I am really dealing with my and trying to get in a positive state of mind. Apart of me says that I should be able to do this on my own. I was 320lbs at my highest weight, so I have lost about 50lbs on my own but I am stuck where I am. I have PCOS, which makes everything ten times harder.  I still have a lot more weight to loose. Im just ready for a new life. I worry about loose skin, if I will look good, if the surgery will work for me. I am at the end of my rope, as many of you understand I am sure. Each day I get a little more informed, a little more positive, and a little bit stronger. I feel excitd and hopefull and I really think this surgery will change my life. I am ready for my cinderella moment.
