So yesterday was my final NUT appt... This week i completed my cardiologist, pulmonologist, and surgeon clearance... On Monday my 6 months worth of pre-op will be submitted to my insurance for approval (or gasp, denial)... I'm just saying a prayer that it goes through and is approved because I start my pre-op diet next week! Can't believe how fast these 6 months have gone!!! Hoping to be living the banded life starting 8/5/13!!

Yes - date has been set for 3 months... I should find out this week if I'm approved and I'm terrified!! After all the prep I've done since January! Good luck next week!!! Can't wait to hear how you do!!

Congrats on that accomplishment...it is a lot of work getting the pre-op stuff done! Im finishing up my psych this tues and nutritionist next and then they will submit. It is nerve wracking hoping they approve it and quickly!

Oh I may have wrote that wrong then - it's always been 8/5 (3 weeks from tomorrow)... I'm so excited but I know this excitement bubble will be severely deflated if I get denied by insurance :-/ I'll keep you posted!!!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
