    They cancelled my 5K because they did not have enough sign ups. I am so sad! It wouldve been such an achievement!
  3. wow you look amazing Mary
  4. Thanks for the replies .. And LOL ,I love some of the suggestions. I usually say I my doctor is watching my weight and I do eat 5 /6 smaller meals a day .. I think it really got to me yesterday because I heard it a couple of times and my husband said somebody asked him again .
  5. Wow - I hadn't seen your new picture - it is so beautiful! Your sweetheart better hold you close when he takes you out. LOL
    Good luck on the training for the Disney 5K - you WILL make it - just don't give up - you are running for all of us who would like to be there with you!

    Thanks for the info. Yes, I am on Medicare. My clinic said they require 6 mths Dr supervision. I can see why I guess. They want to be sure you are committed before they pay for a surgery. We will be back in Ohio before my 6 mths is up. You look really nice in your picture & I'm sure you are proud of all your hard work.

    Hi Aquajog, So glad to hear from you. We are Fl neighbors & we also are snowbirds for 3 yrs. We bought in a retirement park in Avon Park. This is the first yr we will stay down there all winter. That is because of last winter in Ohio & I know Pa was the same. Did you have your surgery in Orlando or Tampa? I know Fl has a lot of good Dr's & hospitals. Hope to hear from you again. Carol

    Hi! Just saw that you had your surgery in celebration. That is where I first started but had move to a surgeon in Tampa due to insurance issues, so I'll be making a two hour drive to see my doc too. What part of florida are you in?

Basic Information

About Aquajog
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I have gained and lost weight for so many years .Seems I may do well for a while than gain what I lost and more. Was hit by an car and than a fall down 14 stairs .. Everything healed in time but put on so much weight during that time. In my 60's and need to do something now. The more weight I gain the harder it is to be active . My insurance has already approved for the by pass.. Completed all their requirements but my case manager dropped the ball when finely completing all my needed paper work. I had my doctor's clearances , EKG an even a stress test and bone density which my doctors wanted . I had these all done in early July...finish my last of 3 dietitian appointments on Nov.3. My case manager said she would contact my insurance company these were done.... So I started to wait ,and wait and wait AND WAIT even longer .. Finally contacted case manager as I was getting inpatient..she said "I thought I would have heard something by now ." I called my insurance carrier the next day .. I was told ,"We just received information and request for approval from your doctor today ."
I was confused , surprised and upset..
So I get my approval in about a week for gastric bypass and my clearance expire. They say things happen for reason .. And I throw my new case manager curve as I have been doing more research .I am wondering If the sleeve is a better option .
