I had my 5th monthly weigh in of my supervised diet on friday. I lost the 2 pounds I had gained the month before. Feel good about that I guess...especially since I wasn't working that hard. My husband lost another 7. Yay! We picked up our letters of medical necessity from the primary care physician that morning so we were able to give it to the insurance coordinator that same day. We scheduled our psych and nutritional consults for May 12th and our 6th weigh in for May 20th. After that, they should be able to put everything together to send off the insurance company. It feels good to be getting to the homestretch of this 6 month holding pattern we've been in. They're going to submit my husband's stuff along with mine for approval but he has to finish getting his BMI down before they can schedule surgery for him. I am hoping a July surgery date but we'll see. Overall, I'm feeling very positive about the whole thing. The waiting is gonna kill me as I am not a patient person by nature, but it will be a happy day when I get an answer. Approval or denial will be much anticipated. It will be nice just to have some concrete answers going on. I'd be ecstatic with an approval. Of course, if I'm denied, I'll be incredibly angry, sad, upset and disappointed but at least I'll know where I stand with things. They gave me the MMPI or MPPI (what is it?) for the psychological evaluation. Man, that's a lot of questions. They want it completed before I go talk to the psychologist. For some reason, this part doesn't make me nervous at all but that could just be because I already know I'm nuts so she's not going to tell me anything new. LOL.
What else? Oh yes...it looks like it finally happened. I have bored 2 people to the point of no return. I lost 2 followers last week. As a long time fatty, my self esteem is highly dependent upon being liked by people. I consider myself mildly amusing (OK...I crack myself up...but I can recognize not everyone finds me as funny as I do) and not horribly offensive in anything I do. Alas...2 people disagree. I'm taking the high road and assuming they were being cyberstalked and had to delete their profiles and are no longer logging on to the internet for fear of being brutally murdered by an axe-wielding cyber psychopath. With that being said, I wish them luck and hold no ill will.
I think that's it for me. Happy Monday!
