I can't believe it already happened! I can fit in a Victoria's Secret bra! I'm soooo excited I cried at the mall. This was a milestone I thought would be way down the road! How is everyone doing with short and long term goals/milestones? I'm almost 2 months post-op and enjoying all the perks to my weightloss...and whining about the bad ;) 20181210_202245.jpeg

Being able to sit in "normal" chairs in waiting rooms instead of the extended two-seaters. Not needing an extender during plane rides AND, again, fitting in the seat comfortably without feeling wedged in. More choices with clothing in sizes that don't represent the maximum, some clothing stores, for example, don't carry anything higher than a 4X. (While I enjoy a snugger fit in clothing, I also oddly like that hanging-off-of look as well... sort of like the kid who gets hand-me-downs in a size too large and has to make do. Weird, I know.)

@danieocean CONGRATS!

I had the SAME feeling when I was finally able to find back into my VS bras! HUGE victory!

All the same items as Misouri-Lee's Summit above, including the sentiment that I don't like snug fitting clothing anymore. But, my most recent NSV was to go into a clothing store and buy NORMAL size clothes, not a size with a "W" behind it. I nearly cried at that one.

You go girl!! We're around the same place in our weight loss too! Feels soooo good to toss out the 3x's before I knew it I'm now in an XL!!!! Crazy! I realized when my leggings were sagging and my mother mentioned my pants were so baggy it looked like had "pooped my pants"...it was time to shop for some new clothes LOL

I was so excited when I got into VS bras. My be advice is to not buy to many. I now have a bunch of expensive bras that are at least two sizes to big!

Great job, Congrats! On Giving Tuesday I took all my 18/20w pants to the Christin Mission. 6 bags! What a feeling! Found some of my next size down back of the closet. LOL What a feeling of wearing pants that don't feel like you have a load down there. I even had to put a belt on some of them because they would fall off. Now I think back that I should have never gotten my breast reduction 10 years ago. Was a "F" cup to a "D" cup and couldn't move. Now I think I'm loosing it all there. UUGH But I will find this coming summer a swim suit top that will fit and not fall out of.

      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!

        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.

        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.
