Research...Research.....Searching my Soul

Saturday, March 03, 2012

This decision to have Gastric bypass surgery is no joke. I spend anywhere from 3-4 hours researching this life change.

The path I chose has many benefits and the commitment can not waver. Like the commitment I make to do the right things everyday.

I will have to make many changes. I realize I like to drink water and eat. That will have to stop. I have started already. Chew my food these are things I should be doing however I don't I swallow rush my meal time like I have not eaten in days. That will change.

I am glad I have time not pressure to do this I can work at changing my habits now and not letting my body suffer from me not being willing to change.

So with faith and support from my SP friends and family I know I will be ok.

My mantra
I will not give up on myself. I am the only one that can make it happen for me with God's help . I have the power to succeed or fail.

I choose to succeed.

    Gastric Bypass is a HUGE choice. I am glad you are starting on learning now what made you grow and are taking steps to change that now. It will only help later when your new, good habits rule and help your body to be where it should be. emoticon

This is Where I am .....

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Hi All,

Thank you so much for the support and not judging me. Thank you I prayed and decide to go with the surgery.

I have to say. Everything that I ask for God gives me. That gives you an idea of the kinds of things I ask God for.

I have been praying regarding my weight for 10 years I have tried everything. My SIL had the GB surgery 5 years ago and the changes she needed to make emotionally, physically and spiritually. She struggled with and still does. Sadly she has gained all her weight back and more.

I , (mind you I) felt this was not the way I wanted to go. I believe that if I had checked in with God and prayed and waited this was his message. I am convinced this was my path.

My health has gotten worse now I face being a diabetic.

I have decided to have surgery. I have also after much research decided what gastric surgery I will have I will share that in my next biog.

I will check in to let you know where I am and if things change.

Janet emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We do all make our own choices and live with them... and if you are truly set on this path and willing to live with the necessary changes, then more power to you, girl. I know it isn't something you're going into without a lot of soul-searching and prayerful consideration.

You know we'll be standing behind you all the way...

    Janet, good luck in whatever surgery you decide to go through with. I had considered lipo-suction a few years ago, but my doctor convinced me not to.

Will pray you make the right decision.

    I have never even seen a chance to win something like that appear on my wheel or my bonus wheel. (Nearly 7 months) You are SO blessed to have won that. I would ADORE owning one - but I can't afford to even consider it. May God continue to bless your success on this journey we all share. emoticon

On again Off again

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I am not in a good place. I feel like I should start back at square one. Tracking my food. If I can just track and journal. This is a beginning.

I am trying the food plan upday/downday. I have one day of whatever I want and the next day. I have a limited amount of calories.

Little Janet wants to do what she wants to do when she get ready. I am feeling an attachment to food.

I also joined the team Made to crave. When God is first and food is not at the top.

I have also been thinking about the gastric band. I don't know if I could restrict myself in that way.

I am all over the place. Those who know words of pray please pray for me.

Have a great week my emoticons

    Janet focus on some thing other than food easier said than done. Drink water before any every meal and give thanks for that food. I am thanking God for every food I eat and thanking Him still when I do not go for seconds. As the bibles ask and it will be given to you, keep asking for guidance for every activity. We tend to ask for help with our carriers, our families but not for our food intake. I hope the Crave God group will help you stay focused on this journey.
God is always listening all we have to do is talk to him in prayer.
Take care of both little and grown up Janet.

I am in prayer for you right now that God will direct your path, and help you crave Him, instead of food. That He will help you make wise and healthy choices to honor Him. I find that tracking my food honestly really helps me to think twice before inserting fork. Just knowing that I'm going to have to write down everything I eat often is enough of an incentive to keep me from making an unhealthy choice. Are you drinking your 8 glasses of water a day? That helps. Don't be discouraged. Jesus was faced with even greater temptation, yet He did not sin because He knew that obeying His Father was more important than anything that Satan offered Him. God will get you through it if He brings you to it. You are an intelligent and beautiful lady. Honor what God created you to be.
