  1. Anyone here has surgery may 30th? Post your stats. mines is HW: 274 SW: 252 CW: 228 GW: 160 May 30th. 2017
  2. I started this process on Jan 18th of this year. 3 month weight management for the insurance requirements is ALLLLLL DONE!!! I am scheduled for surgery on May 30th. Im scared yet excited at the same time!!! do I have any surgery twins out there???
  3. I'm glad to say I'm completely finished with everything that was on my checklist required from the insurance and the surgeon! I just have 1 last weigh in to do on April 28th and everything will get submitted to the insurance after that. The good thing is, my insurance approval turnaround time is 72hrs!! I am overly excited. My doctor only wanted me to lose 5lbs before surgery and I lost 7 so far. (3 month program) but I am willing to lose as much more as I can to be healthy! anyone have any tips for me?

    That is amazing!!!! I plan to have my surgery done in the early part of May. im basically done with the required things to do, I have 1 more weigh in but I do still want to lose as much as I can before surgery. my surgeon only wanted me to lose 5 lbs. but I lost 7 so far. I was just wondering how to kick start and lose more. and I see people doing low carb high protein and I kind of wanted ideas on the meal plans because I see that it does work for you all!

    hopefully mines will be in may. I will be finished with my last weigh in at the end of april. my doc wants me to lose 5 pounds by the last weigh in or he wont approve me..
  7. I Also thought this was a lot of appointments. I started the process on Jan 18th! Met with the surgeon and patient advocate. Patient advocate gave me a check list of things that has to be done by April 18th. My insurance require a 3 month weight management program (weigh in every 30 days for 90 days), 1 psychological visit, 1 nutritional visit. Surgeon requirements are Blood work, Endoscopy & cardiac clearance & to lose 5lbs by the end of the 90 days. I only completed the Egd on the 3rd & labs on 1/20. April 20th will make my 90 days & then they can submit everything to the insurance. Im hoping to get sleeved in May. That'll be a nice mothers day present. But Geeeshh this is a lot when your working a full time 9-5☺

  9. My first appointment with the surgeon was great! I have to do a 90 day weight management & what's even more surprising is that he only wants me to lose 5lbs in 90 days!! My requirements list isn't that bad either. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
