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.
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.
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.
