Yep, I received my acceptance letter to start working towards my goal of weight loss surgery. I was so excited and I wanted to share it with everyone, but on the other hand I didn’t want to admit I was to this point in my weight.

Part of me felt like I was taking the easy way out, well I felt like people would think I was taking the easy way out. The truth is I’m starting a journey and if I can truly loose the weight just by diet alone we will find out in the next 6 months.

Helping Step by Step

One of the things I was really excited about to find out was that the doctors would be helping me with everything. I didn’t need to find a nutritionist or a diet plan on my own to submit to my insurance company. OWLS was going to be helping me through each step. They have nutritionists, counselors and more for me.

Not only that but they have long term follow-up care set up for their patients. Which reading a lot of stories I have found this is incredibly important. A lot of the negative stories I have read have been about patients that traveled for their surgeries and obviously didn’t have follow up care.

To Be Continued

I now am waiting for a phone call to schedule my first pre-operative appointment. I’m excited and nervous at the same time.
