  1. Happy 26th Birthday brownie012!

  2. WHATS WRONG WITH THE CHAT????????

  3. Thats so sweet to be so supportive. I know what helped me through the breakdown was that my hubby sat down and started thinking of things we could have together...like soup. We went to the store together and shopped for things to share, and it really took the stress away because he was sort of adapting to me. Its hard at first when you have people scarfing down foods that you love (in my case my kids). But remind him he can always chew and spit! Took a long time for that go get figured out, but just know that with the band, after the first week or so, you get use to what you can have and crave what you can have more than what you cant. And i know that he will have amazing support with a wife like you, who will undoubtedly compliment his weight loss and be by his side!
  4. First NSV! My 6 year old told me im starting to look skinny! :D my baby sure can make my day

    2 Lbs Shy Of 100 Lbs Lost!

    WAY TO GO!!!!!! =) Im proud of you!
  7. I thought it was a little too easy as well. I pulled up BCBS requirements. Went down the list, did psych eval, nutritionist to make sure i understood the after-diet. Typed letters of emotional support from family, got mwdical records proving weight 2 years back, made a list of diets for the nutritionist. got pcp (who is actually internal medicine specializing in respiratory) to sign a letter of necessity. Sent bcbs a copy of blood panel showing no thyroid problems. Got approved same day it was sent in. Had surgery 2 weeks ago. down 15.5lbs!
