I have jumped ship, fell off the bridge, bumped my head, lost all sense of direction and I am walking around and around in circles. I know what the problem is and where I went astray. It started with all these problems I was having with the insurance and having to start over with a new doctor. Even though I have completed every aspect of the requirements for the surgery, being told that you will have to change bariatric doctor and go to a hospital that is 60 miles out of your way will throw a major wretch in your plans.
My Aunt’s passing was another thing that also side tracked me. Dealing with death of someone you love causes all kind of emotions and I chose to eat unhealthy during this time. But here is the major kicker every time I eat something that I know is fattening I know it is wrong and I shouldn’t do it. But I still did it nevertheless. Luckily I did not gain any weight.
I am now in the process of reevaluating all of my behaviors and focusing on getting back on track. I am really lucky that I do not have to take any more therapy or nutrition meetings. But I will have to wait 2 more months before I have the surgery. So I started out with the surgery date in February or March. Now I am looking at June of this year. This delay is also causing problems with my hip surgery that I was supposed to have in September or October, now I am probably looking at November or December. Do I really want to have a hip replacement during the holiday? The answer is no…but because I will have met my deductible for the year I would be stupid not to have it as soon as I can. Moving forward nonetheless, keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Because we all fall down, we just got to get back up and get back on track.
