    Top Weight? Goal Weight?

    I have learned so much in the past 6 weeks. I have quickly noticed I can sabotage my weightloss with cheesecake!!!! And other soft sweet treats! As soon as I cut them out mentally the downward journey began. I am über excited with progress thus far!

    Its Offical Im In A Stall

    I'm 2 weeks out and lost a rapid 20lbs and I'm at a stall!!! So I'm ok for now... It's been 3 days and no drop but I know their is no way this eating 500 calories a day will not equal weightloss. It just can't be mathematically correct... So I'm being patient.

    Over Eating

    You never regret eating healthy, you always regret eating unhealthy. I actually ate better before surgery to get my mind right. Salads and more salads. The weight will still take effort to come off and you will think back had I been this weight the day of surgery I would be this weight post op had I not went od.

    2 Weeks Post And Scale Going Up Slightly!

    Our bodies adjust to what we are now eating and it will continue to drop if you continue the proper food stages from your surgeon.
  20. My preop appt consisted of weight 269, height 5-6.5", urine sample, blood work, EKG, and a chest X-ray. Anesthesia woman came in and asked a bunch of questions from what medications do i currentlytake, when was the last time i took them. She asked if i took any drugs or marijuana. They ask because smoking cigarettes effects healing and so can marijuana use. She asked if i bruised easily or have been sick recently. Everything took maybe a couple hours. I was told the estimated amount of this vsg surgery is $65k and the insurance allowable portion is 10% so out of pocket I have paid to the hospital $2,142.00 (not including meds and prep foods) not bad considering the surgery is so expensive. I just hope no other bills are sent to me... Now on to patiently waiting for surgery day.
  21. I wasn't offered a payment plan at the hospital, I sure wish I was offered that because the $2k+ was a chunky amount I didn't have just lying around but it's done and hope I don't get more bills...
