Well, I successfully had my 2nd of three weight loss classes last Friday. One more and a “binder” class (where they go through the binder you are given at your first appointment) and I can be submitted to insurance for full approval! That’s when I’ll get my surgery date. If all goes well, I anticipate it will be in early June. Fingers crossed.
Class was good. We talked about what it takes to make a change. All the phases and steps that go into adopting a new habit. One that sticks anyhow. Pretty interesting stuff actually.
I lost 4 pounds between my last class and this one. Which isn’t amazing, but it’s good. My doc only suggested I needed to lose 2 pounds each month. I’m not so heavy that I pose a surgical danger apparently.
There are days I waiver. Some days I’m totally committed to surgery. There are some days I think, “I don’t need surgery…I can totally do this on my own.” Then I look at all the years and all the attempts and all the weight gain that comes back. I cannot. I need help. And I’m thankful I’m getting it.
On another bright note…Frank and I have decided to sell our house post-surgery. in August. I am finally getting my dream home. The Richmond American Seth. I can’t express how excited I am. It’s crazy. I feel so very lucky! I know it’s counter-intuitive to buy a larger house when the kiddos are leaving, but to have the room, the kitchen of my dreams…we’re finally at a point where we can comfortably afford to do it. I am so blessed. And I am thankful for a husband who supports my, and our, dreams.
