Yesterday was a milestone day…

I have been waiting for the day that I could have my life insurance increased through my husbands insurance.  I had to have lost weight and kept it off for a year. Yesterday morning a lady came out from a 3rd party company to do a thorough physical exam to determine if I will be given life insurance. I now will have to wait a month to find out if I get life insurance  but I’m sure it will be fine.  Being self sufficient and prepared for the future is so important to me and a huge part of that is having sufficient life insurance so that if something happened to me my family would be able to financially handle things. It will be a great day when I get the acceptance letter from the insurance company. 

This has even a deeper importance to me because about 5 years ago I sat on the phone arguing with a man at the insurance company telling him that their weight restrictions were unrealistic and that it would be impossible for me to ever get close their standards.  Well, I’ve reached the impossible.  Now to keep going with my weight maintenance.  Everyday is a struggle and yesterday was tough.  I will make better choices today!


  1. Becky that is amazing. I am so proud of you. Whenever someone seems distraut about weight I refer them to your blog.

    Good luck with the insurance.

  2. Yay! I hope it comes through :)

  3. Hi,
    Just found your blog! 200 pounds lost is AWESOME!!!! I am in a slump right now, but trying to get back on board...happens, doesn't it! Thanks for the inspiration. Your story helps.

  4. Becky wow! Oh how I love you! I have often thought about life insurance, I currently do have it but it is on the extremely high rate because I used to be overweight. I have thought about re-doing it but have still been too nervous to do it. I still think I will wait till my goal weight. But it is just another thing that tied me closer to you and your story.

    Sometimes what I find more exhausting than the actually fight everyday is the thought that I have to fight this for the rest of my life. That it really will never be that easy for me, but then I try and reel it back in, and just focus on the next choice. I can do it one choice at a time. So can you. Thanks again.
