Well I have some bittersweet news here! I recently started my weight-loss journey (January 13th to be exact!) I went in for my first of 6 visits that my insurance requires before surgery. My Insurance will only pay if I have a BMI above 40 and one Co-Morbity. Apparently, I went to the Dr and I was healthy as a horse. Great News LOL I know buuuuuuut Where is my dang Co-Morbity. I can't afford to be self pay! So they ordered a Home sleep study I had to take for 2 nights. I did it February 28th and 29th. Just got the phone call today them telling me I actually do have Sleep Apnea. It was literally the only thing left I had to be able to have this surgery. Just have to pass the PSych Exam on the 15th and I'll be good to go :D I know it seems weird to be excited but sleep apnea will get better with my weight-loss. I couldn't wait to get off the phone with that guy so I could scream. I know all of y'all can understand...For someone who has been over weight just about their whole life to be able to have a chance at losing weight is just amazing!Just few months ago I thought this was impossible........ Anyway, I am so Thankful for this website and the people on here. :D

Good for you Sammydeez!!! Hey whatever it takes. I would have a hard time doing it without insurance, my BMI is the only thing that helped me, I'm short so of course it is high as is my weight. lol Other than that I'm healthy as a horse too! Good luck on your journey! Hope all goes well!

Thank you Ladybug! I honestly had to try so hard to contain my excitement when he told me I had it. i didn't want to weird the guy out by being excited as he told me I had sleep apnea. LOL. As soon as I hung up I freaked out! Did a little dance had my Doberman Pincher barking at me. It was funny. Glad I was home alone!

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
