Down but not outÖ

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Yes, I have failed yet another attempt to lose this weight. Itís not that I donít want toÖ.itís just that I donít seem to have the motivation to get it done.

Iím tired of messing around. I canít continue on this path. Things are getting critical for me as my health has really been nose diving in the past couple of years.

SoÖI 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 dayÖit is my decision and itís your choice to follow me on my journey or not. And I hope you doÖ.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 jobÖand my insuranceÖso 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. Iím excited and super scared. But I know in my heart it is the path I need to take. It isnít an easy fix. Itís 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 onÖbut for now know that I am here and I am going to make this positive change. Itís not for everybodyÖ.but I owe it to myself to pursue it!

Have a great 4th!

    I've known several people who had surgery...
While I don't think surgery is the way to go (I personally think it is too dangerous) ....I do think that it is your right to decide for yourself....I support you fully in your decision!

Keep us posted in how you are doing

    emoticon I support you! I look forward to hearing more about it. There was a Julie on here and she explained all about having to do the work after the surgery. It's not "snip, snap, doodle, done." It changed her life for the better though. (Too bad she doesn't post any more I think you'd enjoy chatting with her.)

emoticon Wishing you well.

We all follow our own path . The idea is to get to your destination. I won't fly so there you go. We all travel a different path. I am always here for you and kind of miss you alot when you are gone so long between posts. I am so glad you believe you are worth the work. Keep us posted.
