No Surgery after all
Wednesday, January 05, 2011
Ok, Insurance rep called yesterday. Bad news...the doctor doesn't want to do the gastric bypass on me, just the sleeve. I don't have the money to have the sleeve.
I am not upset...I am kind of relieved in a way. I was starting to get very nervous about what if something did go wrong and died during surgery. So when this news came I was ok with it.
So I am back to doing it the old fashion way....so far I have lost 9 pounds just doing the diet they gave me to do before the surgery. It is a High protein, low carb diet.
I am surprised at how satisfied that I am doing the diet. So far it is working...so I am going to try and stick to it as long as I can.
My goal not to quit...and if I hit a plateau change it up a bit and try something new. Usually when i hit a plateau and it lasts for more than a couple of weeks I fall of the wagon....so the goal is to keep going. Strive harder and lean on family, friends and prayer.
Today was a good day.
