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.

    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!

    Wonderful. Trusting that God will help you heal on the outside and the inside. Working on the physical body always makes us work on the inside--mind, emotions.
