May 13, 2011

I just found out yesterday that I am going to be able to have weight loss surgery. Our insurance doesn't cover anything for WLS, so we will be paying for it, "out of pocket", so to speak. (Not that we have that kind of money IN our pocket....we'll be taking a loan out!)

I have felt such a sense of freedom today, knowing that within a few months time, I will be on the road to truly being in a healthier place than I've been in that past 15 years.

Surgery date: JUNE 24th.
Date to begin liquid diet: JUNE 10th

My plan is to blog along the way and record the process of losing.
Wish me luck!

    Big news! During the time you have before surgery you can prepare by SPARKING as best you can with great food and activity choices! The important thing to remember about weight loss surgery is that it is a TEMPORARY boost to your efforts in building a healthy and well lifestyle.

    I am speaking as a "failed" weight loss surgery candidate who lost all the weight and despite the surgery put it ALL back on and THEN some! WLS is a tool, not permanent magic...!

    If you haven't already done so, join some SparkTeams related to weight-loss surgery...there is much you can learn from them.
