There's a tab above that lists 100 reasons why I want to and need to lose weight, and if you click on Rejected Reality (classic) in the right bar, you will see how I blogged my previous weight lost journey. A journey that resulted in this...
Summer 2008 - 250 lbs.
A lot of stuff has happened in my life since that picture was taken. I've spent the last year trying to catch lightning in a bottle again without success. Last month I went to the doctor and he told me that I'm pre-diabetic and I'm also showing signs of other weight related health issues. I've thought about weightloss surgery in the past, in fact I was trying to qualify for it back in 2006 when I ended up doing it on my own. I talked to my doctor about it and he agreed that it would be a good idea to pursue that tool. He wrote me a letter of medical necessity to send to the insurance.
The insurance pre-qualified me and I heard from OWLS today to schedule my first pre-op appointment on July 19th.
