10/11/05 - Today is my six month anniversary. I have done a lot of reflecting on all that has happened in my life. This has been one remarkable journey so far. I have lost a total of 82 lbs and have been able to do things in my life that I couldn’t do before. I am able to run now, who would have ever thought!?! I can actually go out dancing and still talk without being short winded!
I am so grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to have this surgery. I am thankful for my surgeon and support of my family and friends. I can’t wait to get to the finish line!
A lot has happened these last few weeks. I went on vacation, then got pneumonia, and I am not an evacuee due to Hurricane Rita. I’m in the process of re-locating back to
Houston, TX because my place of employment has severe damage. I know that the Lord has brought me through all of this and given me the strength that I need to handle these situations that arise in life.
I am so thankful for the friends and support I have gotten here at OH and I just have to say, it makes this walk a lot easier when other people know what you are going through. The best is best is yet to come.
Wherever you are in your journey hold onto your dreams and never lose sight of them. God Bless!
10/20/05 - WOW! What a ride this last month has been. I have been from LA to GA to FL to AR to TX. I was on vacation then upon returning I had a little battle of pneumonia, then had to flee due to Hurricane Rita. I am officially re-locating to
Houston, TX . I came back to
Louisiana to gather some more things and I bought a brand new car today!!!! I guess its true, we start losing weight and want to improve in ALL areas of our life.
I broke up with my boyfriend of 3 years this week. The relationship was just not going anywhere and I felt it was best to end things. He will always hold a special place in my heart because he went though the WLS road with me. He was very good to me and I did not end the relationship due to WLS, I ended it because I want to get married again one day and he doesn’t. It was best to end things rather then let them continue on like they were.
I am heading back to
Houston Saturday and will begin my search for employment there. I can’t wait to start a new life for me. It is such a great feeling to have the confidence now to be able to do things for ME!!!
Wherever you are in your journey, don’t ever lose sight of your hopes and dreams. God Bless!
