Well, tomorrow is my big day! I will be having weight loss surgery! Yes, weight loss surgery. I am having the lap band surgery done. I am extremely nervous and could use any prayers that you all may want to pray for me.
I know this will be the best thing to ever happen in my life. Being healthy and getting off this high blood pressure medicine is our goal in having this surgery.
Finally came to the point that help is needed. Try as I might I can loose 20-40 lbs but then I gain it all right back. Dr. said that a lot of it is my genetic makeup. He's right...my grandma and aunt both have had weight loss surgery...only about 28 yrs ago.
I'm writing this to let you know that it is ok to do something like this. There is nothing to be ashamed of. It's a tool to use to help take off weight and keep it off.
I'm looking forward to a day that I can shop in normal sizes again. A time when I can go shopping with my nieces and not need to go to the plus size department. A time where I will look good in that little black dress. A time where I can get in the floor and play with my son and not need help getting back up. A time when I feel better. At time to be myself again.
God is so good and I'm looking forward to this. I'm just scared. But I know that I have family and many friends praying for me.
I'll be posting some goodies this afternoon and hope that you'll go over to ebay and bid on them. I'm going to need some money to buy some new clothes in the next few months. LOL.
Thanks for all of your support!
