My father in law approached my husband as to whether or not I would like to consider lap-band surgery. He offered to pay for me to get it.
As I have no insurance, no other options financially, this is a one of a kind offer for me...
I am considering, seriously, of taking him up on his offer.
I know that even with lap-band surgery, I will still need to eat healthy, exercise, and work hard to get to my goals. I know this is NOT an instant fix.
Consider, I have dieted and exercised with limited success for the last 25 years. For most of my life, I have struggled, and lived with the pain, both physical and emotional of being this big.
I see this as a TOOL to help me, I do so need help. If I could have done this on my own, I would have done it by now.
I have prayed for help for as long as I have dieted. I think this may be the help I have been hoping for. I did not ask for his help, he offered to pay for it.
I will attend a seminar on January 16th to find out more.
For now, I will still continue to exercise and eat right. I will fight for what I want, I will not give up, and if someone wants to help me, I am not too proud to accept it.
As he pointed out when he finally broached the subject with me, I need to be here for Juliette, and all of my family. Getting this surgery could very possibly save my life.
I know it would help.
Well, still considering a lot of things. Talked with my mom. She is in support of it. My sister had the more invasive gastric bypass, and went from over 300 to 145. My brother is about 400. My father is overweight and has diabetes. My grandmother died from diabetes. My mothers side has heart conditions.
I think if he is serious, I will take him up on this.
Much love, keep me in your prayers.
