WLS Classes

And here we go again. So last night I had my first "class" regarding the revision. So in this class they pretty much tell you what is going to happen and how the surgery works. Well I already know. All of the people in the class were band to sleeve/bypass patients. Not surprising. I was baffled by one lady, mid 50's. Still way overweight. We were talking and she says "I love ice cream. I get stuck when I eat food so instead I just eat ice cream. That is why I want to be revised so I don't get stuck anymore." Well, that's a pretty f'd up way of thinking. If your mindset is not ready for Surgical Weight Loss, you wont be successful with any of them.

My insurance requires me to attend a Psych Evaluation, which I happily scheduled on August 20th. A Nutrition class, August 26th and a Doctor talk which I ended up doing last night so I could get that out of the way. Also I need to complete a structured medically supervised diet and weigh in every 2 weeks for at least 3 times before I can even submit for approval. So I was given Bariatric Advantage Protein. Has anyone ever tried this stuff? I am to replace one meal a day with this. And weigh in every 2 weeks 3 times. Lets hope this helps. So it will be at least 6 weeks before I can even submit to my insurance. And once we do, who knows how long it will take them to approve it.

I am still considered morbidly obese by my height and weight. I just really wish I was normal at times and did not have weight issues. I know I shouldn't think that way, but it is hard.

I really enjoy blogging so I am unsure why I do not do it more often.

Until next time....

  1. I think we will always be fat girls on the inside. Even once we have our revisions and look fabulous in our new and improved bodies... And it's okay... I think remembering where we came from will help to keep us from going back. And just look how far you've come from the beginning of this journey! You've done great... it's just time for the next step :)
