I emailed my insurance company to follow up on my paperwork and they gave me the procedure codes and authorization numbers for everything. ALL APPROVED!!!

I left a message with the surgeon's assistant, who is responsible for scheduling her pre-ops and surgeries. Since it was almost 5 I expect I'll hear back tomorrow or Thursday. I am SO excited right now. I'm making a bucket list of things to enjoy before surgery one last time. It's a short list, so I'm not going to go overboard or anything. Just a few favorite dessert type things that will be off limits afterwards. At least until I engineer sugar-free, diet-friendly substitutes.

I'm also making a list of everything I'm going to be able to do and enjoy after I start losing a significant amount of weight. Things like;

Flying without squishing my husband
Riding a roller coaster
Buying smaller clothes
Looking good in a dress/skirt
Having a baby (maybe some day if my other health issues don't get in the way)
Being able to run around on the tennis court (I miss tennis)
This one is going to be TMI but I don't care... having a comfortable, non-awkward, intimate relationship w/ my husband.

So while my life/health is improving a little bit every day, my car has decided to dump on me. Every time I come to a full stop I have to put it in park and keep my foot on the gas a little. Otherwise the tach drops to 500 and stalls out.

It was great fun trying to get home from clear across town where I was trying to run my errands lol. It's going to the shop tonight to be looked at. Hoping it's something simple and not the entire effing transmission.

    Also RYN has a 70% success rate at the 5 year mark. So yes 30% regain but that is not "most". And compare that to 90% regain with diet/exercise alone - which really is "most".

    Keep surrounding yourself with positive people, don't listen to the haters. You don't have to defend your choices to anyone. Do what is best for you

    So happy for you! Its doesn't get easier after surgery but its worth it. I'm almost 3 years out. It was the best decision of my life. Keep supportive people around you and follow your surgeons guidelines. Message me if you have questions.
