The true story of a fat person's weight loss efforts-- doing great, then a year goes by.
So, I did do great. Between April and November of last year I lost and kept off about 25 lbs. Enough that people noticed, especially because my face looked thinner, but not enough that I had to buy a new wardrobe.
I also found out that my particular insurance didn't cover surgery, because my employer excluded it. So I was pretty bummed. I had to put things off while I switched insurance and waited for it to go into effect, but now I'm back on track! Insurance approved the surgery today and I schedule it next week.
I'm hoping to schedule in about a month. I want some time to get myself back in the right mindset on give myself a head start on weight loss. But yay!
