I can hope, right?

I'm on a weight loss mission.  I'm determined to finally loose this weight.  I absolutely hate how I look and I'm tired of being depressed about it.  Problem hips.  They have gotten progressively worse.  Especially the past few months they have gotten really bad.  Which means there really is no workout I can do besides sit ups and swimming.  Swimming isn't exactly an option this time of year and with no 2nd car.  So yes, I ordered diet pills last night, SlimQuick.  I'm hoping they give me the start I need to get this weight off.  I think I'm going to look into Weight Watchers too.  Yes I know the dangers or diet pills so spare me.  No I'm not taking the easy way out, it has nothing to do with not wanting to exercise because I do.  I'd love to go workout each night and have a break and do something good for myself but I literally can NOT do it.  I don't think many people really GET it.  But anyways I'm doing what I think is best for me and I really hope it helps.  

But speaking of hips I looked on Scottish Rite's website today, for anyone that doesn't know my previous hip surgeries have all been through Dr. Johnston there.  He is the only one that has ever operated on me, done follow ups, I did all physical therapy there.  I was sponsored by the Shriners.  Next problem, they are a children's hospital, up to age 18.  But my Dr. still works there and well I'm desperate, I wrote admissions in the hopes that since I was a patient there and they've done everything for me that even though I'm now 23 they would still see me and do my hip replacement.  It's all stemming from my original problems so I hope they will.  I'm pretty sure they won't but doesn't hurt to ask right?  I don't know how much longer I can go on like this.  We don't have insurance and even if I were to get insurance tomorrow IF they would even cover pre-existing conditions I'm sure there would be atleast a 6mo waiting period before I could get the surgery.  I need it done, yesterday.  I hope to hear back from Scottish Rite tomorrow.  I'm considering calling Dr. Johnston's office myself and asking them, but I'm scared they'll say no and then I'll just feel stupid, I'd rather do it over email but I don't have an email directly to him.  I don't know if I should just call or what....
