You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

I have used this to encourage my friends and well as member who in their blog ask for help or the entry title they state sadness or doubt.

I even use this for me I too need to me reminded this is not a race that stopping and smelling the roses on a daily basis means I am in the moment I am present for life.

I am on a walker/cane I am very fatigue. However

I have not given up on myself. I now know I am the only one that can make it happen for me.

I have chosen to succeed.

    I am so pleased to hear your have your surgery consult appointment. That means you are so much closer to your surgery. We are going to do this together all the way. It is amazing to me the connection that we have developed in such a short time. emoticon emoticon

    I don't think I am part of the tunnel, I'd prefer to think of myself as an encouraging guard rail with a twisted sense of humor. I am so happy your surgery is right around the corner and I will tell you the first 60 days you are going to feel amazing like you haven't felt in years...My God bless you today and every tomorrow...."Sprink"

    Having a confidence in our self is the best key to any success. It is good that you are moving forward each and every step of the way. Don't think about looking back because it will just give you a flash back of what was going on. Now look forward to a brighter future which is waiting for you and ..Just You & Only You can make the first step & keep continuing toward the success..

I Made It !!!!! Waiting for the Call from the Surgeon

Friday, July 20, 2012

Well I have met all my requirements for gastric bypass surgery. Now I wait for the surgeon to call for the consultation and then a surgery date.

I am trusting God I know every time is in his time not mine.

I was blessed to get a therapist who I see once a week. This has been so helpful to help me deal with the trauma in my childhood. For some reason a lot of things have surfaced.

I am good with that. I realize I must include more of God in my day. Time with God this will help me remember that I am not alone and there is a power greater than myself.

I will let everyone know when I get the date for my surgery.

Have a great weekend.

Janet emoticon

    emoticon I'm excited for you! I had my Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Weight Loss Surgery in 2004 and, even though I backslid some, I still feel it was the best thing I ever did for myself! You are so smart to be going to therapy. I think, had I done that, I may not have had my regain. Also, try to find some real-time WLS support group(s) to attend. Not the informational ones, but one that is for post-surgery people. I attend two now and it's made a world of difference! And don't forget - you need to not only follow the nutritional guideline, you need to exercise, too, to reach the ultimate goal.... good health!

My Secrets Are Out!!!!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Hi All,

As I get closer to the finial stage of getting a surgery date (WLS) I am dealing with my childhood trauma. I did not chose to have this stuff come up but it has and I am going to get thur this. I have a great therapist. I am learning how to be mindful in my feelings as well as my food.

This is a huge task, however I desire to be successful before surgery and after.

I will step up and I am willing to change and approach life in a different way than I use too.

My DH is wonderful he is number 4 yes my 4th DH. I often wandered by in the pass I chose men who mistreated me. I found out why and I address it then I was bless with this wonderful man.

I am willing to tackle my food issues the same way and I will be blessed.

Take care and have a great week.
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. Choose to succeed.

Janet emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Janet you are on such a blessed path in life I know that you will learn from and grow beyond any trauma from your past. I too have found that new insights I am gaining are helping put all of the things in my past in a new, more manageable perspective. My demons are leaving me and being replaced with the angels of friendship such as ours. Keeping me steady on my path and I am there for you to help along the way. I am so excited for you as you approach surgery day, you are going to be amazed at how fast life changes for the better. I hope this message finds you at the end of a great day and that you have nothing but blessed weeks to come. Your friend - Sprink

    As you are working to change your outside, we often have to deal with our emotions, our past, and the reasons for our issues. You're doing what you need to do to work through everything And I am confident that God will help you through this. Lean on Him and He will help you. Your DH is a blessing to you. You can do this.

    I'm on hubby number 4 too and he is the only one I should have married. I got married for all the wrong reasons and at this point I see what my issues were. I wish I had addressed them and got help before 3 bad marriages took place.
Work on those problems and enjoy your happy 4th marriage! I'm enjoying mine!

    How wonderful that you are moving through your pre-surgery list, for me the journey took 9 months...forever! But one day you will wake up and it will be your surgery day. I finally had my surgery 7/3 and looking back on the entire pre-process, it wasn't really forever. It gave me some perspective - instant gratification doesn't get you where you need to go. Hang in there and your surgery day will be here before you know it. Happy Day!
