First of all Help with Medifast recipes for Mother's Day Cake? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... I am still in the process of getting approval from the insurance company. So happy to be in the process, but on Friday the Dr.'s office called and asked me to prepare a "Diet History". I didn't ask how far I should go back, but I did it going back 10 years. As I looked back over the years and the different diets I have tried, and how I had success, but only to regain the weight.

You see where this is heading. I have done the.

Research.

, I have determined in my heart and mind that I can do this, but, looking at my past Medifast diet history....I am wondering if I will really be able to do this and be the healthy, active person I want to be. I will be 58 in January. I can't continue what the past 20 years has been if I want to enjoy the next 20..

I.

Hope.

You all had a Blessed Day..

Faith..

Research.

As for the history your doc needs, my doc needed the same thing from me so I just got every doc I was seen by in a 8 to 10 year span to write a letter on my behalf and it worked my insu company let me proceed with the.

Surgery.

, may be you should try that as well!!!.

GOOD LUCK and all will be JUST FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..

I know exactly what you are.

Talking.

About. They asked about calorie restriction attempts...when....amount lost...etc. All I could think was WHEN????? How do I enter the dates for every other day???? LOL...and that was just one type of attempt. I too am 58, and considering the.

Surgery.

I too wonder what I need to do to prepare to ensure that this is not just one more attempt. I think one major difference is that there is help available and I am more willing to use it. Good Luck with everything. I would love to keep in touch to compare notes...

My history.

Faith.

...

54 and a fat slob for the last 15+ yrs last nov 3 2009. Lost 60lbs + more times than I can count and gained that back every time. Well.

Now I'm 55, one year post.

Surgery.

And flat out skinny. I have a 31 in waist, the same I had in 80 when I married Pollyanna..

My advise to you young lady would be to just do it and get your life on the road that god intended you to b on.

The difference between diets and WLS is that with WLS you HAVE to be committed. You HAVE to follow the rules. Get plenty of fluids and protein. We are given the tool of WLS and it is up to us to use it properly for optimum success..

I researched for 6 years before I finally committed to gastric bypass..

Good luck and by all means ask as many questions as you need answered...

I had to do a complete diet,.

Surgery.

, illness, etc history. It was a 30+ page questionaire. In my case I landed up goingt back to when I was in high.

School.

All the way until time this dr procedure - (50 yrs old). Boy let me tell you after.

Reading.

The completed questionaire I definitely was so embarrassed for it showed how much of a failure I have been - I mean I exposed my whole soul. The dr was so glad I was up front about everything for it also showed how much I wanted this.

Surgery.

And wanted it to be a success..

Don't be ashamed of what you write. I made a copy of the answered questionaire for myself. Now 2 yrs po-op I can skim it and see how far I have come to a healthier life. And remember - this is not a Medifast diet like many believe. It's a tool to better eating and living...

When I attended the seminar to get my consultation with my surgeon (it's tomorrow!!) I had to do a Medifast diet history. I've been overweight my whole life and when it asked me to go back to what I've done, I didn't know how far to go back because I'm only 22. I went back to about 8th grade and I figured that was good enough. Also when they asked what my lowest weight has been I didn't know how far to go because everyone was a smaller weight when they were in grade.

School.

! I went back to when my height stopped increasing and I think that was good enough but we'll see tomorrow!!.

Good luck! They told me at the seminar that if it is medically necessary (like if your doctor recommended you for it) that the insurance will cover it and even if it doesn't to write to them and they might make an exception. I was lucky with my insurance and they approved me with just a doctors note...
