So, I have been waiting to see my primary care provider to hopefully get a referral into a weight loss surgery program. Unfortunately, I forgot to schedule the appointment for a time when I could get a ride to the office. My mother is my usual transportation provider and somehow I forgot that she is leaving the state next week, so I had to call the doctor's office and reschedule the appointment. My appointment isn't until February 20th at 8:30 am. This also means that I won't be able to attend the next 2 support meetings because I won't have a ride.

I knew when I started this journey that it was going to be a lesson in patience. I've had to wait over 2 years to get medicare, so I know that I can be patient. I will update this blog after I have had the appointment, unless something comes up before then or I just feel the need to say something about what I am feeling or finding in my research.

Hiya. Well done making this difficult decision. I agree with fellow commenters, seeing that you've waited an agonizing two years for medicare, how could you not have what it takes to follow through with the rest ?! Way to go girl. I shall be reading your blog from now on, cheering you on with the rest. My experience is _nothing_ compared to what you will have to go through, but I have lost 40kg (about 6 stone, a little less) 10 years ago and although I have managed to keep most of it off (I have gained and lost about 10kg a couple of times now standing at about + 5kg to the lowest weight I've been) I have been dieting and struggling ever since so I have a slight idea of what sort of ordeal you are getting into. Good luck and I shall be back :)

It's got to be hard when you can see things starting to move but you're strong. Hang in there.
