    Uhhh-ohhhhh!!

    Thank you all for your words!... GraciesMom~I especially thank you!...You're right!...all of those "one times"...and "only a littles" got me to where I am!...It's easy to loose perspective!!...I have to admit this Lap-Band is alot more work than I had anticipated!!....and when I first started browsing the boards (pre-band) I would get SO frustrated with people like myself!!!:thumbup:....It's time for me to pull up my big girl panties and suck it up!!....it's liquid for 4 weeks...not a life time!!!....I deeply appreciate your honesty!!! Aileen
  2. I'm praying that I'm not the only one who dummied up today!!! (not that I wish anyone bad) :thumbup:...I am 8 days post op...I am supposed to be on "Full Liquids"..."anything pourable".....However, I took it upon myself to decide it would be okay to partake in a little Thanksgiving dinner (no...I'm not a Dr....just lost my mind..haha)...I had probably less than half cup of food...(stuffing, cranberries and the inside only of pumpkin pie).... My question to those of you who have been doing this is do you think I hurt anything???....I feel so guilty right now!!!!..... Aileen

    Do you drink soda?

    I WAS a total Diet Coke addict...however, I managed to cut that out a good 1 1/2 months before surgery. Now, I like to just let Diet 7-Up go flat and drink it that way!...Not sure why but it tastes really refreshing to me!!

    protein shakes

    My Dr. created a shake with Medagentix...it's called Bariatriax Essentials....and it's wonderful!!!...little spendy at $57.00 per container.....if anyone wants the info let me know!
  5. That's just it...the two doing it...ARE NOT the skinny ones!...They are heavy themselves....my thin friends are estatic for me!!!
  6. So, I told my coworkers about my decision to have the lap band...the ones I thought would support me the most have been making jabs like "I brought in cupcakes today,they're really good. Can you just eat the frosting?"..."Just one won't hurt"...and constant remark like "how was your shake?"....and at Halloween the one gal even came and ate a candy bar in front of me and said "ummm...doesn't this look good?...do you miss it?" Seriously...I don't even have the band until 9-18-2009....what gives???:thumbup:

  9. I had mine on Thursday...I work in the health care field so I was eligible right away....initially I didn't want the vaccine as I felt in had not been researched enough...then one of our Dr's talked me into it.

    Going to start my new life 11/19!

    Hi there!...I am being banded on November 18.....right before the holiday season for us!!!....Can't wait for the challenge!!
  13. I have been going back and forth with my insurance after my "denial" in August....after giving up for a little while and deciding to go South of the Border and "self pay".....I put down deposits, bought airline tickets and was prepared to do WHATEVER I had to do!!.... Then...it hit me....I AM SICK.....I have had a heart attack (at 30yrs due to migraine medication), I have high blood pressure, and horrible pitting edema and was being looked at for possible congestive heart failure...I am 35 years old..... I decided I WOULD NOT let my insurance NOT help me....I called....dealt with a wonderful woman at my insurance company directly....had all 86 pages of my med hx resubmitted and ......I WAS APPROVED.....IN LESS THAN A DAY!!! So...in short.....don't give up...fight your insurance...you pay for it....you deserve it!!!!

    Crushed

    Hey guys!!...I just got told this afternoon that I have been "denied" due to no "supervised weight loss" for 3 years with my PCP....talked to my surgeons office and they said that denial after first submission is very common....and they will gather everything needed.... My question is....has anyone else been denied and later been approved and what was the approximate duration between denial and acceptance?? Many Thanks
