Lasts night was lit... but time to come back to reality.

I'd say! Looking forward to starting this challenge. My goal is to lose 15lbs in these 14 days before surgery. Completely doable at my size. I feel I'll be cheating a bit since I am having surgery on the 15th, but I'm not sitting this one out!

I'm in!

SW: 243

CW: 137.8

GW: 135

11 months post op

Small caveat, my current weight is last time I weighed myself on 12/27. I won't get back to a scale until 1/4, and I'll try to remember to weigh in.

I'm at goal weight, so I don't necessarily want to lose more (unless I can choose where the weight comes from :P). The 135 was my recent post WLS low weight.

Goals

Consume 50 g or more Protein per day

Take all my Vitamins

Get in 64 oz Fluid a day

Start logging again

I know, back to basics. I've gotten very complacent the last few months as I approached goal. But I know for my long term health I need to get more protein in and take my vitamins. On a practical note I have a sh*t ton of protein supplements, so I need to get through those. Pantry clean out challenge as well! The hydration thing, meh, I'm not a true believer :lol:, but I do know if I drink more, I eat less, so there is that. And I need to start logging again so I can find the balance between losing, gaining and maintaining.

Here's my starting pic - 1/1/2019

Oh, and one more caveat for me, all those goals apply (except for logging) when I'm home. All bets are off when I'm traveling. Fluids, Protein and Vitamins are tough to all manage on the road, and I'm not super motivated to make that happen.

Yay!!! So the before pics are our "present current weight pics"? Cuz if you don't take a pic of it, it never happened? Damn! Why didn't I know this so I coulda taken a photo yesterday when I was glammed up. Now today I'm "the day after the party"...and that's never a good look! *snic*

      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.
