HI MY NAME IS SUSIE SMITH AND I LIVE IN NE PA I AM 49 AND MARRIED FOR 15 YRS AND COULD NOT HAVE KIDS .WE DO HAVE A FEW KITTY CATS THO WE LOVE I AM DIABETIC AND AND IN FEB 2007 I HAD A GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY I USED TO WEIGH 448 LBS NOW I have lost over 200 LBS AND SORTA STRUGGLING TO GET DOWN MORE LBS TO MY GOAL AND I-I HAVE DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS AND USED TO BE IN A WHEEL CHAIR -NOW I CAN WALK WITH A WALKER/ROLLATOR... I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER! JESUS IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR..GOD IS IN CONTROL ALWAYS.. I DO MY BEST TO ENCOURAGE AND MOTIVATE OTHERS AS WELL AS NEED OTHERS TO MOTIVATE ME AT TIMES-AS I SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION..BUT MY HEALTH HAS GREATLY IMPROVED SINCE I LOST ALL THAT WEIGHT.. BUT I AM STUCK WITH THE DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE AND I DEAL WITH THEM ONE DAY AT A TIME..GOD GIVES ME THE STRENGTH I NEED TO KEEP ON MOVING.. NEVER GIVE UP MY FRIENDS..WE FALL DOWN AND WE GET RIGHT BACK UP..
IF I CAN DO IT--YOU COULD DO IT TOO! KEEP THE FAITH.. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF...
I HAVE TO STICK TO MY SMALL TERM GOALS AND BE REALISTIC --SO I DO NOT GET DEPRESSED.. I WANT TO STAY MOTIVATED AND POSITIVE! AND I DO NOT GET OBSESSED WITH THAT SCALE.. OBSESSION LEADS TO FAILURE I BELIEVE.. TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATHS....
WOULD LIKE TO MEET MY GOAL OF 198 LBS- LOST OVER 180 LBS AND HAVE 67 MORE TO GO TO MY GOAL AND WOULD LIKE TO KEEP MOTIVATED SO THAT I CAN LIVE THE REST OF MY LIFE HEALTHY..

Hello Susie, I am kinda new to spark people. I too had Gastric Bypass surgery in Feb 2007. My weight at that time was 360 lbs. I wet down to 190 lbs and am now back to 280 lbs. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. My blood sugar drops sometimes in fact it can go as low as 35. Its very scary. I was hoping we could be support friends here. We can certainly uplift each other in prayer.
I have your Birthday as July 6th. I see from reading these posts that it could be the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or today. Which ever day it was or is I hope you had a awesome day. May the following year be filled with wonderful and Healthy surprises.
