Step 1 is done! May 9, 2013
Today I got a letter from my PCP. She 100% agrees that I need the surgery and basically sang the praises of all of the hard work I have done, and how I would benefit medically and physically from my TT&BL! Tomorrow, I just have to print my letters and get them in the mail. BCBS told me that I should hear back 7 - 10 days after they receive my information.
In other news….
My scale batteries died Tuesday, had a rough week at work, and after getting new batteries last night, I am still below 190! I was actually 188.4 this morning! It feels so good to know that I can have a couple bad days and hop back on before weight becomes an issue.
What constitutes a “bad day”?
No exercise and an extra 200 - 300 calories.
It’s hard to believe how far I’ve come, but I have! And I’m so proud, even when I beat myself up!
Today I did some squats, sit ups, and 3 jump and hangs from my pull up bar. Not too impressive until I say that for the first time EVER I was able to hold each hang at a 90 degree bend in my elbow for 5 seconds each time! Now to build it up! Bam baby!
