Over A Hurdle
Thursday, October 25, 2012
You know I have been on weight loss journeys so much I was almost sick of it ! I mean come on tell me the truth we have all been there and done that am I right? But it is up to us to get back on the horse and try again and again till it finally sinks in and when it does it feels like it is meant to be am I right?
Well that is what happen I fell off and I fell far but then it hit me it was time to get it right and I am so glad I did and I will tell you why..
I have lost 59 pounds but even with that I know I have a ways to go I was happy with that but the other day I had to go down to my husbands work to check in with our insurance it was to check my BMI and ask me if I smoked and no I do not smoke thank goodness for that. Well anyway my husband doesn't smoke and he has a low BMI why is this so important you ask well here goes the blow that really hurt me and opened my eyes even wider.. What our BMI and smoking issues where is how much we would have to pay on our health insurance we both got 450.00 off a year if we both hit our targets well I only hit one of ours but my husband hot both his and saved us from a real high rates and I earned a great deal for not smoking. The thing is thanks to me we had to drop our low deductible and and take the mid and that is a deductible of $1000.00 a piece thanks again to my BMI and I do feel discriminated against I watched others my husband works with get mad and most of the women who work there break down and cry including myself.
My husband come home and called insurance companies and several told him they would insure him but not me and he was so mad it wasn't funny not at me but the insurance companies.
But after talking to the HR Manager and she explained things to us she told me if I loose 10% of my body weight by next Fall I would get allot of reimbursement from the Insurance in the form a of a check and that is about $250 dollars just for loosing weight something I had already started doing anyway.
So here I am again working harder than ever cause what if my husband got laid off and we didn't have insurance I wouldn't be able to get it cause of my weight so off it goes.
I am on a mission and I will succeed you just stand back and watch.
