Mine! 6 months. I started in August, so I'm late Jan/Feb timeframe, too.





I started the end of December last year & some things came up so I had to stop and I’m restarting but they’re letting me start where I left off. So February.
And if I would’ve just finished back then, my insurance only required 3 months. But it changed. [emoji19]

Hey February sleevers, My date is Feb 6, 2018 and I'm looking for buddies with close dates. I'm really wanting to start a support chat group on LINE, which is a messaging app I use, because I'm in Taiwan and I little isolated from support. Anyone interested? <3

Hi everyone. Started in April but couldn’t officially start till July. Having my last nutrition appointment this Saturday. Then next mouth is my surgeons appointment to conclude my 6 months requirement. However the Bariatric center told me it will most likely be end of January or February because the surgeon is teaching and lecturing. Also switching insurance carriers in January. Hope this won’t stall things up.🤞
37yrs 5”11 SW 296 CW 291.

My insurance wants me to have 6 months of supervised dieting, however, since I'm on Weight Watchers, they have accepted that. I still have to abide by the surgeon's guidelines and find out how many months of supervision they require from me. I've completed approximately 90% of the prerequisite testing. In 2 weeks I'll complete the rest (psych evaluation, meet and greet with the surgeon, nutrition/dietician) I've been doing this for a month now, and I'm getting pretty impatient waiting for the next appointment, or even getting any information. But that is something I have to deal with. I'm hoping to have surgery In January/February (Fingers crossed!). I can't wait to have some sleeve buddies! :)

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
