I went to my last Doctor's appointment today. My 6 months of Doctor supervised Diet/Exercise program is now complete. I am scheduled to meet with the surgeon on Wednesday. I am excited and I am nervous... I have gained 21 pounds since August 2011, despite adhering to a 1500 calorie or less diet (almost exclusively) and exercising on average of 3-4 times per week. Seriously, who the &@#$ does that happen to? I know people who make less of an effort than I do and lose weight, or at least maintain it...
My doctor seems to think that this will help my case with the insurance company. There is no specific guidelines in my insurance requirement that say I have to lose X amount of weight. When I spoke to the lady at the surgeon's office, she seemed very positive. When I told her about my weight gain, she said that the only thing my insurance company wants to see is that I made an attempt. Well damn skippy I have made an attempt. I have it documented for almost a year of how much of an attempt I have made.
Talking to the Surgeon office lady has eased my fears and anxiety a little bit. I don't think that it will subside until I am in the recovery room.
In celebration of my last appointment, I treated myself to a diet coke from Burger King. I have given up soda, but since this was a special occasion, I treated myself to a small one. I prefer fountain soda to bottles or cans, and BK has the best soda... their mix is just perfect.
Anyway, I am going to the Chiropractor tomorrow, and I am looking forward to it. I can't wait actually. It is going to feel sooooo good. My chiro doesn't use traditional methods. He uses a low force method that is a lot better. Plus before my adjustment he puts me on the Spine-a-lator table, which sounds like some Medieval torture device, but in actuality is the best thing since sliced bread.
I think that is all for now
