Not that I condone that, but my coworker used ankle weights under her jeans to qualify.

Note to self: I don't have to take this day all at once but rather one step, one breath and one moment at a time. I am only one person.

@@kimberb Congrats on hitting ur bmi goal!!!!I was told that as long as you are being treated for the anxiety and depression u should be fine. They are looking for ppl that want to commit suicide and don't understand the process of wls and how it will affect them.

Putting weights in your bra can work, too. These insurance rules are so arbitrary, for people who have yo-yo'd forever. And we all know how easy it is to can gain or lose 7 lbs in a week, since we've all done it 100 times. (Worry that writing about this online will tip off the insurance companies, and they'll start requiring naked weighins!)

Are you in Kaiser northern CA or southern? Your psychiatric history won't preclude you from surgery, but if you are actively involved in treatment then the bariatric psychologist will likely want to check-in with your providers. They just want to make sure that you are stable for surgery, understand the risks, have good support, etc.

Never have thought of suicide. I'm very thankful for that cause I know people that have that issue with their depression.

I've been in one on one therapy for almost 4 yrs. I also participated in a group therapy for about 8 months.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
