Hey guys! This is my first post here! I just wanted to share that I’ve been approved by my insurance for VSG!! I have Cigna insurance, and I only had to have one nutrition recommendation, one psych recommendation, a letter recommending me for surgery from a doctor who isn’t the surgeon (my PCP provided this), and a letter from the surgeon recommending me for surgery. The whole process took a couple of weeks because of my schedule, but I got the green light! I DID NOT complete a 3 month or 6 month (or any months, for that matter) physician supervised diet. The letter from my PCP was very general and just listed that they had been monitoring my weight and all of the things I had tried at home (Atkins, Weight Watchers, etc...). Next is getting with the scheduled to get a date!! Good luck to everyone!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
