Coronavirus causes canceled group weigh ins



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I was waiting for this to happen.. my bariatric team called and said my appointments (and everyone’s) are suspended until further notice. They will be calling me in 30 days to see where we are standing. Does this suck? Yep!! But I’m going to do my part and wait this out like everyone else. Just thinking.. anyone else have this issue yet? I’m going to be tracking my weight on an app so I can show proof that I was still doing my part, although I realize that the insurance might just say start over. Any ideas welcome! Good luck to you all while some of our journey is being put on pause.

I just had my three month checkup last Thursday and it was in Northern Virginia, which at the time was the only place that had confirmed cases in Virginia. I'm really glad my doc didn't cancel, but I about turned blue from holding my breath for 5 hours until my train ride back home.

I can understand cancelling surgery to save valuable resources, but a weigh-in? That uses nothing--I don't get it.

I have my 3 month follow up this coming Wednesday. They do a group session with the Internist and a dietician. I've been waiting for them to cancel, but instead I just got an email they've moved it online/video conference which is great.
