She has a huge wait list and I won't even be able to see her for probably 3 or so months... but I am on the list! There is a GREAT chance we'll be able to get it covered under MSP as well!!!!!
I asked about having to maintain for a year and they said it won't be necessary. That since I've been losing for 16 months already it shows that I am able to maintain a weight loss which is what they want to see!!!
I won't get it done until I am AT goal but I am hopeful that will be during this calendar year! So that's my new goal... WORK MY *** OFF to get to goal so I can have the body that I want!!!
The stuff done? Arms, breasts, lower body and thighs... fun!
edited to add: My doctors scale weighed me full dressed at 207... I hopped on my scale fully dressed with a liter of water, coffee AND breakfast in me after I got home and my scale said 214.2. I am wondering if my scale is dying??? Oh and my blood pressure was 107/71.
Woo Hoo!!! That is such great news!! It's great when things work out according to plan.
I have seen your progress pictures and know that you have come a long waaaay!!! So this is the last stretch for you.

Whoo hoo!! Can you imagine being firm and fit with "things" where they belong?? Gravity and chub do such baaaad things to body we were meant to have!! Ooooh, to have the boobs of a 17 year old and AND a flat tummy?? No wagging arm skin, no saggy tooshy?
I am so happy for you!!

Okay...so I'm majorly jealous! ;) But still really happy for you!
I'm making myself wait until my 1 year of maintenance anniversary (July 3rd) before I consult a PS. Mostly because I'm so afraid I'll regain, (like I have SOOO many times before!) So far so good.

So that's like "medically necessary" for us I bet. Doctor says it's necessary for your quality of life? Good for you! Hope it all works out. I think my thighs are going to be a bit ugly when I'm done, but I think everything else is going to be okay. And I'm almost 44 so no one wants to look at my thighs anyway - I'll wear those cool skinny Bermuda shorts. :-)

Congrats Chick!! :hug:
02-04-2010, 01:23 PM
great news!! also great planning ahead!!
02-04-2010, 01:28 PM
Congrats!!!! I always thought about getting a tummy tuck/lift, but like some others, I wanted to prove that I could maintain. I also want to wait until I know for sure that I'm not going to have any children.
I did do a consult with a PS though, and it IS SO EXPENSIVE! So that is awesome that you have the finances covered! You'll have to keep us updated on the experience!
02-04-2010, 04:21 PM
That is bloody cool to have it covered! Don't you love MSP?
Woot Woot! So excited for you!
02-04-2010, 04:38 PM
Pish. Of COURSE I can maintain. Dears... if I can LOSE 170 pounds and gain back my life, I CAN maintain.
Besides what BETTER motivation TO maintain. Really!!!
02-04-2010, 05:18 PM
Wahoo!! How exciting!!
02-05-2010, 06:07 AM
That is fantastic, I'm so pleased for you!
I know that medical treatment shouldn't be a prize (but we know it sometimes is) - but you SO deserve this!!! You have definitely proved your commitment to a healthy body!
