If I were kate...I would move the hell over and let you get up on the door, too.

And the Pie-Hole crack? That's for when YOU made that crack and had tea out my nose.

I think I look like Ursula the sea witch (from the Little Mermaid) without the good boobs. [emoji16]

@FluffyChix It's so crazy how you can think you look one way, and then be horrified at the reality of a photo, happens to me all the time. I keep hoping it's the photo that is all jacked up, lol.

In my defense, I'm not photogenic at all, I have never taken good photos even at my smallest size. I am so thankful for the digital age and editing capabilities on phone cameras! I've had a lot of anxiety lately because I have to take a new drivers license photo, and those folks are worse than me at taking decent pictures. On the plus side, the new one can't possibly be worse than the one I have now where my fat face fills just about the whole picture area.

And I'm changing jobs at work, which means a new badge ID, which people look at all the time. I have to wear it above waist level for Pete's sake! I drove the HR lady crazy several years ago when we last took my picture, I kept making her do it over, and it wasn't helping me look any better. I've been procrastinating on getting the new badge, but tomorrow is the day I have to do it by, so please send me good photo vibes! And send the HR lady mega-patience vibes, I'm sure she'll need it!

First time I heard a recording of my voice I realized I sounded just like Marjorie, the bratty,older sister of Chuck up the street.

OMG, voice records are no better than photographs, LOL. :lol:

Oh wow! Saying prayers for you tomorrow that the HR woman gets your perfect piccy on the first take!!! I get it. I think I've never been photogenic, except when I was super little. But have never been able to smile naturally.

      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.
