Oh I still have a ton of stuff to do, im just getting my foot in the door with the university. Havent been with any of the doctors there yet. Im not too far in too this ordeal yet. My referring doctor said I might get approved for the surgery ( and be done with all the steps during the 6 months in Dec)

I dont really have any advise, I read alot and do research online about as much as I can . Ive started keeping a log of what I eat. I dont do it every day now. I did for a month when I was being really strict on my diet. That was helpful to go back to and look at too see what I ate and how much that helped me kick start my weight loss. Ive currently lost 21 lbs since started.

I wonder if since you lost so much weight they wont approve you for stage 3 they may say you are doing well on your own. . I know you only have to lose 5 percent to qualify.

Molina told me that I just have to do the 3 twelves, 12 dietitian 12 physical therapy and 12 behavior therapy appointments

Molina is making you do 12 physical therapy and 12 behavior therapy appointments on top of 12 Nuts?

Im on Amerigroup they said 12 nut apps and 6 doc, get a pysch eval, keep an activity log, and thats all other than what all the University of Washing will be doing as far as there testings and such, my nut said I will meet with a nut over there twice and a physical therapist once I think, and then another pysch eval over there possibly?

Kim, I went from approval to surgery in 3 months. At Rockwood in Spokane, they can fast track you as long as you have half of your 12 pt/NUT/counseling visits done and half of your 6 Dr. Visits done, your 5% lost, EKG and Psych Eval completed.

I hope not, Ive lost close to 100 lbs on my own twice in my life before, but I always gained it back within a year, my referring doc said to keep going with the weight loss and my Nut said I can maintain the weight but has be doing more exerciser.

Any of you ladies know if you HAVE to have at least one comorbidity with Medicaid Molina? I spoke to a representative at Rockwood and she says you donot... I'm wondering if she thought I had regular Molina..

Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

Yes I am and I'm happy about it. I have heard rave reviews about UW and the care that people got while there. I live in Vancouver, so it's going to be a bit of a drive, but I love Seattle, so I'll probably go up a day early just relax before the big day! If all goes well it will be December! What a way to kick off 2017!!!
