Thoughts on this "insurance" pre-op diet

Since I have my last insurance diet appointment on Tuesday, I got thinking.  What is the point of this stupid thing?  If I could lose weight well on a diet, I would go on a diet.  Not have myself surgically altered to do the same thing.  It is the point to sabotage this or something?  I have been being good and really trying.  I never was one to eat horribly.  Last month I lost 2lbs.  That was it.  Dr. said that with one of my medications that was good.  I am beginning to think that all of this doesn't matter at all to the insurance company.  They are just trying to "weed out" those who don't have the patience to put up with their crazy BS. 

Wow, I am rambling this morning.  Just one of those days.  I am hoping that the rain that is going on now will stop in time for the easter egg hunt this afternoon.  The radar looks like it will.   I went to my brother's house last night.  I did really well.  He smoked a pork butt and I was able to just have a very small sandwich which I shared with my daughter.  We had a good time.  I am so glad that he is doing better.  He had been in a depression for about the past 4 years.  We really didn't notice too much, we just thought he was really lazy.  Late last year, he almost succeeded in a suicide attempt.  This brought everything to light.  He had actually been kicked out of college for a year and his roommate didn't even know he wasn't going.  He moved in with me for a couple of months to get back on his feet.  Thankfully everything is going well with him now.  He talks now, which mom & I figured was just a "man" thing before.  He has started going to college online which he really likes.  The cookout was to celebrate his first grades.  All A's!  I hope that this puts him on the right track.

I just looked outside and the sun is now shining!  I sure hope that they haven't called off the egg hunt!  This is the first year my daughter will be able to go.  My oldest son (14) is excited about walking her through the area.

Happy Easter! Stick with it...insurance grrr...just so you lose a few pounds over the entire time (5-10 pounds, no more is what I was told) and they see that you stuck with it and couldn't lose any significant weight. -BG
