Hi MeaganMB! I'm in Louisville. Just got on here today. Went to the weight loss seminar last night and turned in my paperwork to start the process! Where are you in the process?

How exciting! I have made it through nearly 8 steps so far. Luckily, as of 2 days ago ALL of my info (letters, test results, labs, evaluations etc) have been submitted to my insurance company and I am waiting for my final approval. Once I get that, I will have my surgery date! If you don’t mind me asking, which seminar did you attend?

I’m going through Norton. You should message me on here! I’d love to talk with you some more. It’s nice to know someone else that is on the same journey as me.

Have you gotten your approval yet?!

I now live in Europe, but I used to live right across the river near New Albany, Indiana, if you're familiar? Used to go to Louisville all the time to see friends and such (especially Bardstown Rd.) :)

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
