  1. Interesting!

    So I have HSA at my job and I looked into what that means and what the inclusions are and I found these things that may very well be of benefit. YAY! I am super excited and if I thought I would be healed and ready to travel for my cruise in May, I would totally try to have surgery in March!!!

    Trips

    You can include in medical expenses amounts you pay for transportation to another city if the trip is primarily for, and essential to, receiving medical services. You may ...
  2. Discouraged!

    So, I was getting discouraged because y'all are doing great and making progress mean while my A1C is 10!!! and I'm gaining weight trying to eat like pre-op then just going overboard cause I'm soooo hungry!!! But I'm tripping cause I have not had surgery yet!! I'm jumping the gun. Everything else in my blood work was great except A1C.

  3. Finances

    So for me finances are a real issue as I have stated I'm going to do this with my income tax. I talked with the agency and I have to lock in a deposit in order to hold my surgery date.

  4. Site Participation

    I've been looking around and found some interesting groups to join but it looks like all the activity was a few years ago. So I posted in a few of them to see if there's any activity if not I guess I will just create some new ones especially for the Houston area. I even saw something about a surgery buddy that would be awesome to have somebody to go down to Mexico with in June it would save on cost and it would be great support. Speaking of a surgery buddy, any thoughts on taking a travel companion ...
  5. Nervous 😰

    I intend to continue to document my journey before and after surgery. At this point I am committed to follow through and I am nervous. WLS changes the whole relationship with food. That's a good thing I know however there will be lots of adjustments. There are many things I look forward to and the first is no more medication!! Soon I will post some before, after and now pics because this journey started for me in 2005 at 337 pounds. I look forward to pushing ahead! BTW, I work overnight shifts ...
