Here are a couple of my recent progress pics. I feel like I've still got so much to lose but I can see the difference in what I've lost already!

Just wanted to let you all know, you all are awesome people ! You all are so beautiful ! Keep up the good work and some day I might take a picture of myself it's not comfortable for me, I feel like I'm still in the old body even though I have reached a 91 pound loss to date.

Again, all of you congrats on your weight loss journey !

I'm really inspired by all these before and after pics. My surgery was Nov 13. I'm only down 34 pounds since surgery but 61 pounds since highest weight and I've gone from size 22 pants to 16 and from 3x shirt to just xl.

That’s a great weight loss! Do not allow yourself to get discouraged! You will get to a point where you will notice every pound you lose, it just takes time to get there! [emoji846]. Thank you for your compliments!

Just had my six month follow up visit, and everything is going great. I was sleeved on 11/15/17 and was 333 lbs and a size 28, and weighed in today at 239 and am down to a size 16. What an amazing journey this has been. I can’t wait to hit that goal weight! Keep on posting people!!! I LOVE SEEING THE UPDATES! So proud of all of us!

I had my 6 month post-op meeting yesterday and also made it to 239!!! I've only lost 40 lb since my sleeve surgery (11/22/17) but I'm okay with that. It's a marathon, not a sprint! Doctors say I'm exactly on track for my weight loss goals.

For all my Muslim folks out there that are fasting during Ramadan, just wanted to check-in to see how you guys are doing?

I have had great success since my November sleeve as I have incorporated a lot of lifting and cardio in my everyday life. However, with Ramadan, it's harder to go to the gym because of timing and energy issues. Fasting 18 hours (no Water and food) and trying to lift can get dangerous as I have been feeling weak and dizzy at times. But it's getting easier and easier as the days progress. Looking forward to lifting again. It's life changing.

Let's keep this journey going!!!!

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

      2. GradyCat

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
