Hi,
I am 40 years old, and have finally gotten serious about my weight loss and health. September 02, 2008 I had the Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass. I was terrified, but so far I have only had minor complications. I am doing well, working the program and embracing lifestyle changes.
I still use the nutrition and fitness trackers to track my daily achievements. I have a very good support group here that is helping me get through this journey.


Member Since: 3/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 3,409

My Goals:
To use my faith and my knowledge to develop a healthy lifestyle. One in which I will not only nourish my soul, but nourish my body as well. To learn to discern between nutritional hunger, medicinal hunger and emotional hunger, and only eat to satisfy the nutritional hunger.


My Program:
I am praying, and trying to eat healthier. I am working with an endcrinologist to determine if there is an underlying medical condition that has been undiagnosed that has added to my weight issues.



Personal Information:
I am currently living in the Indianapolis Area. Spent several years in Fort Walton Beach, FL, with all the bikini bunnies. Feel more at home in the midwest - more overweight people around here. Although one of my goals is to be able to visit FL, again, and not feel like a beached whale.


Other Information:
My Motto is FROG4ALL (Fully Rely On God for All Things) Until recently, I thought that meant all major things, now I realize that my health and my weight are things in which God can take control if I allow Him to. No, He won't let me wake up a size 5 tomorrow, I have to do the work, but He can guide my steps and give me Strength, when I am weak. Often the strength will come from the posts I read here.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement...God Bless you...and you're doing an awesome job. What I have to remember...and you too...is that God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of sound mind. Yeah...we don't know what we'll look like after dropping these pounds...but to God be the Glory...they're coming off! And since we are fearfully and wonderfully made (you know...He didn't make no junk!)...we're gonna be fantabulous! emoticon

    I would say that I "randomly" found your page, but with God, nothing is random. I have prayed for you, and I totally believe that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ our Lord. If you'd like to talk or have prayer requests, I am totally available.

    I'm adding you to my friends list.

    Amen!
