Ok, I'm in!

SW: 287.4lbs

CW: 150.4lbs

GW #2: 140lbs

GW #3: 130lbs

10.5 months post op RNY

I'm at #1 goal weight, but I want to lose more!!! I want to see if I can destroy my thunder thighs once and for all!

Goals

Consume 60-74g or more Protein per day

Take all my Vitamins

Get in 100+ oz Fluid a day

Start logging faithfully

Start exercising again today! Walk 1hour 6 days per week, and add in strength training and core building exercises 3 days per week.

I too have grown complacent over the holidays and it shows. Even though my weight and waist size are stable and the same as they were pre-holiday, from looking at my pics, it looks like I'm "soft" and spongy? Like my tummy is bigger and my thighs look flabbier!! Grrrr!!! More thigh rub! Ok....I'm a do this thing!

(Sorry, I still have 1 MORE Christmas to Celebrate this weekend and presents left to be wrapped. It's the Christmas that never ends! *sigh*)

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

Oh and my vote? Like @GreenTealael always says, "If there's no pics, it didn't happen." So I kinda think/feel that if you don't post a pic of your current self, you can't play in the game. We all have phones now and can snap bad selfies (see above)...Right? Am I right????!!!

SW: 243

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

Starting weight is 249.9. My January goals are to make it to the 230's before my surgery on the 15th of this month, and have a successful surgery! Tonight I go in for pre surgery instructions and what not. I still don't know the exact time of my surgery. I was told that the hospital would call the night before. Whhhhy? Why must they torture me so? Don't they know I'm a planner!?

      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.
