Down but not out…

Yes, I have failed yet another attempt to lose this weight. It’s not that I don’t want to….it’s just that I don’t seem to have the motivation to get it done.
I’m tired of messing around. I can’t continue on this path. Things are getting critical for me as my health has really been nose diving in the past couple of years.
So…I made a decision.
I need another tool to achieve my goal. Sparkpeople will still be an important part of my choice but the choice is the kick start to what I need. Some of you may boo my decision but at the end of the day…it is my decision and it’s your choice to follow me on my journey or not. And I hope you do….I still very much need you and your support.
I have decided to pursue weight loss surgery. I had started the process 3 years ago and then I lost my job…and my insurance…so I had to stop the process. I think that was probably a good thing as I have changed my mind about the type of surgery I want. So I have my first appointment at the end of the month. I hope I get insurance approval. So far so good and I have already met my deductible for the year, so that is a plus.
I really, really want this. I’m excited and super scared. But I know in my heart it is the path I need to take. It isn’t an easy fix. It’s a tool to help me start the process. I know I can do it. I want you to take this journey with me. I know I am going to need you!
I will share more as time goes on…but for now know that I am here and I am going to make this positive change. It’s not for everybody….but I owe it to myself to pursue it!
Have a great 4th!
