Still waiting on a date. This is so frustrating. Got my last clearance Tuesday, and they said the scheduler had 31 people ahead of me. I was ready to flip a table. I started this process in July. My insurance required a six month period of medically supervised weight loss. Now, I'm in month 7, almost month 8, and I'm feeling like I'm going to lose my mind. My motivation has been next to nothing and I'm eating like crap. I don't want to start sabotaging the progress I've made so far, but my anxiety is through the roof, and all this waiting has me totally in a funk. I feel like it's never going to happen at this rate. I'm frustrated and losing steam.

I started in July also. My paperwork was submitted on Thursday,but I have a surgery date on April 5th. I just hope I get approved. My willpower is dwindling. Struggling to stay on track right now. I share your anxiety.

Hang in there! I'm getting my surgery March 5th. I know it seems like it's a million miles away, but you'll be doing a pre-op diet before you know it!

I kept receiving phone calls asking for more and more. I finally went down with my weight loss folder and every signed paper I have and went through it with her. I think they handle so much paperwork things get misplaced. My surgery coordinator is great about quick responses, so it worked that I made her life easier. Good luck to you.

Yay!! I think you're feeling exactly the same as I am. I watched these youtube videos and really liked this one guy who kept it real: https://www.fighting400.com/

Watching them gave me tons of information and helped me feel more excited than scared.
