i’m so excited! i know compared to others my wait time is basically nothing but boy has all this caused some anxiety. (my insurance requires no supervision visits but i did them anyway) i started this journey December 31st 😁. at times i've felt like i was being pulled in every direction & now here i am. today i'll be doing a lab to make sure i’ve stopped smoking weed..i’ll pass that sh@# with flying colors & boom i'll be sent off.. hoping my approval comes fast ❤️

I've always said that Einstein was right about the theory of relativity when it comes to the WLS approval process. Time c-r-a-w-l-s while you are waiting, and then you hit a time warp, and BAM!! suddenly you are checking into the hospital for your surgery. Buckle up and hang on--it's gonna be a WILD ride!!

I'm so excited for you! I've been waiting forever for my insurance appeal to go through. (ok, only a week but feels like forever).

Keep us posted :)

You should be fine, get ready to transition into a totally new life. I started my journey Sept 2018 and just had surgery last week. I have had alot of changes in my life and I saw this through all of the pain (my son was murdered this past Jan. ) . I had to finish what he & I started together in his honor and to make sure I'm here for my grandson. I don't want to go into my stuff, I share that to say...Enjoy your journey and take control of your life, don't live in fear, life is extremely unpredictable and short...make your life the best life for you. Grow your locks, continue practicing yoga, be fearless, be positive and ride the waves of your life.

Stay present in each moment, take slow deep breaths and keep a journal. This is life changing and you will reas what you wrote a year from now and realize that you are not the same person, but better. Don't stress the approval process time, you have so many other things to enjoy. Save money for your new everything, I promise you will be there transitioning on that surgery table in the blink of an eye.

Man! Thank you! That really means a lot. Sometimes I get so caught up in things I want that I don’t even concentrate in whats happening now! I’m so excited for this journey! Initially I was worried about being denied since my BMI is 37/38ish. But I’m owning it, like I said this year is mine plus my insurance is so lax about requirements. Thank you for your words, they mean a lot! And again, I’m sorry about your son... it takes nothing but STRENGTH to pick yourself up from that!
