Still no call. It’s been a week since I got my approval. Also I had my EKG and blood work done already. Hopefully they don’t make me pay for that again

I don't know what the hold up is. I had to go to the outpatient area at St. Francis to do all of it. 3rd floor, I believe. They would not let me do it where I live in Mississippi. Hopefully it will not be an issue!

I really hope I hear something Monday. Otherwise I’m going to start calling. I understand she just came back from the holiday break so I’m sure she’s trying to catch up. However, the least u can do is call

I finally got a call back today. They are switching systems so she said she will call me back this week to set my appointment for me to meet the surgeon.

I am using them too. My surgery date is the 16 of January. Dr. Weaver left the practice when her contract was over so it is just Dr. Wegner. I have Betty Coble as my patient advocate. I started my journey with a surgery consultation on March 15, 2017.

Wow!!! I had rny 3/8/17. I didn't know Dr. Weaver had left to the practice. I got a letter from Cigna in September saying she was no longer in my network, not that she had left the practice. I'm coming up on 1 year. I wonder what I'm supposed to do. Should I see Dr. Wegner or try to find Weaver? Oh, the dilemma.

I believe a lot of her patients report to Dr Wegner now to prevent paying out of network cost.

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
