I certainly will pray for you, I will ask the Lord to touch and strengthen you, also to give you peace and contentment in your heart.

May God richly bless you in your time of need.

As you know in a little,more than 2 weeks I will,be having my Bariatric surgery after 3 years of planning , trying, and continuing to try for I believe this is something the Lord has planned for me.

You are right, it is an amazing thing to see how God works in the lives of those that come together in unity, in one mind and one accord.

He said were two or three are gathered in my name I shall be in the midst. What a promise!

God bless!

Now this is what I consider a POSITIVE, ENCOURAGING, SUPPORTIVE post!...what I would expect to find on here in the first place and for the most part is...like others said, if a post does not pertain to you or if what is said is not something you believe in...just ignore or skip ahead! Someone else might really need to hear those words at that moment

I just want to let everyone know that I have read every post that has been made thus far, and will continue to do so.

I truly appreciate all of the kind words that you have posted, I truly and sincerely am praying for each and every one of you on here because I know that's what the Lord wants me to do, even I myself always stands in the need of prayer, after all the Bible does say pray ye one for another.

Even though I don't know any of you personally, I do love and care about you, that's what it takes to be Christ like.

My prayers are that God will richly bless each and every one of you!

In Jesus name..I think this was a heartfelt beautiful gesture unto others. The labor is plenty the workers are few. Prayers in spirit and truth are needed sooo much today now more than ever. Praying for those specifically regarding this procedure is comforting...we put so much faith in the Drs surgeons etc but the Lord is the true SOURCE...with all that being said....I pray your continued strength and covering in the Lord as you go forth doing the greater work. LET THE LORD USE YOU MY BROTHER IN CHRIST....stay obedient to the Holy Spirit.

God bless you, and thank you for your prayers and kind words, it's good to know that I have a sister in the Lord like you. I believe that you are genuine, because as I read your post I could feel the Holy Spirit bear witness of it.

As I read your post the Lord brought a certain Scripture to my mind, I will share it with you.

Matthew 25:31-40
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

May the love of God richly bless you my sister.

This morning I ask that we lift up in prayer my BARI bud Ellie123. She will be undergoing RnY surgery at 1 PM. CST in Dallas Texas. She is the mama of 2 little ones,,6 and 7 years. Pray for peace for her 7 year son, he is very worried that things won't go well for Mama. She is a beliver trying to live a life of victory daily, her fearbe witness day by day in her life. She is just 40, yeah young enough to be your kid or mine. So Lord Jesus guide her today. Sooth all her fears, let her go to sleep secure in the knowledge she is GODS CHILD, let her surgeon's hands be strong steady and sure as he performs this surgery, may she awake refreshed and calm, may her pain and discomfort be small, may her recovery be smooth, may she be granted a l9nger life to love and serve you daily. I humbly ask this believing in the promise where 2 or more believers are gathered, there YOU also will be. Watch over this Lamb, Gentle Shephard, for she truly is of your Flock. And to you all honor, glory and praise given Amen and Amen.

      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? 
      · 2 replies

        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.
