Did/do any of you have a min requirement of weight to lose before submitting to insurance?

•Beginning W/378
•Surgery date is still unknown
•From CT

I was required to lose 10lbs. This is not a lot, especially considering I weighed 325lbs at the time! For my care team, it wasn't really about the number of pounds, it was about showing them that I would do exactly what they asked of me and trusting them that the outcome would be a loss of at least 10lbs. We used it to establish a trusting relationship. I followed their guidelines, stay engaged by tracking, asking questions, and even bringing in food packaging for their review! We worked together and I did lose the 10lbs (and a little more). Some people are required to lose weight before surgery to improve the safety of their surgery. For me that was not the case but it was still a very worthwhile process. Sometimes it's the mental work that is the hardest! Best wishes to you!
