    Down 60 pounds today! I was very happy to see the scale drop below the 100kg mark this morning - it's such a wonderful visual reminder that things are working (slowly but surely). Once I lose 10 more pounds I will be halfway to goal, which is almost unbelievable to me!

    Last appt is next Wed.  The center won't schedule surgery until approval comes from insurance.  Booo!  Says it may take up to 10-15 business days.  Guess I'll be calling my insurance so often to make sure someone is doing his/her job.  Once received they schedule pretty fast...but if I have to have a pre-op of two weeks then it looks as if I have another two weeks after approval.  I'm guessimating mid May for my surgery; which would be just about 4 months from start.

    Yay! I am no longer morbidly obese, just obese! It feels great to get out of the "morbid" category.

    My 2-month surgiversary is today! Down over 50 pounds since I started the pre-op diet in January, down 2 clothing sizes and one shoe size (back to my normal size 8). Completely revamped my closets with "new" clothes from storage. Stalled at the moment but hoping to see the scale move soon!

    Hearing stories and seeing pics are motivating and inspiring. But actually seeing someone in the flesh a few months later really puts it in to perspective. I saw an acquaintance tonight at church. Didn't get to talk, but I had to do a double take because I honestly thought she was a different person. Wow! ...and she had a big beaming smile on. 😊 Love it!!!

    Had a nut appt yesterday. Same old thing, keep practicing on the sipping, no drinking for at least 30 mins after meals, and two bites of protein-then one bite of veggies. I've already went to decaf (the withdrawal was awful) and I replaced my breakfast with a protein shake with green bombs. (Bombs are a frozen mixture of kale, spinach, ginger root, green apples, and cucumbers blended together with some water and poured in to ice cube trays or silicone molds). Great way to get veggies in. My nut says I can continue that with my protein post op too. Yay! 
    So I've got one more nut appt left (April 19th) then I'm DONE! They'll submit my papers to insurance and then I wait. I'm suspecting my surgery to be in May instead of April now. So we'll see. Until then, I wait. Hopefully the month goes by fast. 😊

    So I posted a big thread on heartburn the other day. Not even sure if there was any traffic. Haven't checked yet. But anyway, right about now, I'd be burping before I lay down to sleep and then would have awful acid reflux. Well, I just burped and nothing. Yep, no acid reflux! All day! Even yesterday! I bought Betaine HCL, hydrochloric acid supplements. Take one before each meal. So far so good. I can go to sleep peacefully. Good night y'all. 😊

    One month out from surgery! Still stalled...(thought I wasn't - it was just a tease). Still, 15 pounds in one month is not bad, and the inches are definitely coming off. I may be able to get into a smaller size as my biggest clothes are just barely hanging onto me now.

    The scale finally moved down a little today - that makes 40 pounds lost! It's hard to believe that number even though I know it's true.

    First step (again) I bought a small daily journal. I've been writing what I eat and protein grams. It's been helpful to be mindful of what I place in my mouth. It's only been one day and a half, but it's a step in the right direction. I used to do this with calories a long time ago. Seems like this time it's less of a headache counting. Not sure why, but I'm glad it's working for me. Now, I just need to stick to it!

    My kids got me in to JUST DANCE on the PS4.  I have no idea why we didn't have this before!!!!!  I danced basically all night with my 7 year old, my husband kept telling us it was time to turn off, and then we'd pick another song and keep on going.  My knees are taking a beating today though.    She's actually playing it again as I'm updating my status.  LOL 
    So....pysch evaluation tomorrow! I'll give an update for how it goes!  I'm Pysched!!! LOL  Pun intended.
