115 Pound Loss and a Request for Prayers!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

This has been an exciting last few days! I am happy to report that, as of last Friday, I have lost 115 lbs on this part of my journey (from July 31st, 2012 to present) and a total of 177 lbs overall (since March, 2011). It boggles my mind looking at the body with which I am now working. It also boggles my mind that I still have 40+ lbs to lose to get to my goal.

On Friday, I had the blessing of injuring my left hip while jogging with my trainer. I know that sounds odd to say such a thing is a blessing, but it really is. Without the injury, I would not have gone in to have my hip x-rayed and the radiologist would not have found what she did. The hip itself and the ligaments around it are fine, but they did find a significant calcification in my left femoral artery that is causing a partial blockage. It never would have been discovered had I not had that injury, so it is clearly God working in my life.

I am requesting prayers that, when I go in to the Dr. on Thursday to discuss this, there is an simple way to resolve the partial blockage without any major invasive interventions and that He will keep me safe and healthy through whatever strategy is used to resolve the issue.

Thanks in advance for the prayers!
