I'm praising God for a new outlook. I'm not looking back anymore. I'm pressing forward.
As I stated in a previous post, I have been trying to have weight loss surgery for many years. My company will not pay. I spent a lot of time being bitter about this, but I let it go and just determined that I would have to do the work on my own without any help.
A lady from my church is having the VGS (Vertical Gastric Sleeve) surgery on 9/28, She said God put it on her heart to pay for my surgery, too. Yes, you read it right. God is still working miracles. How does this happen?
She told me I could take as long as I needed to pay her back. I am still speechless. I check in with her every couple of days to let her know what my progress is with my appointments. I'm so excited at the prospect of having a new life.
My nutritionist put me on a 1200 calorie/day diet and I'm doing well. I've lost 13lbs since last Thursday. My husband and I laughed after I left my appointment because the nutritionist had me weigh twice because he couldn't believe I'd lost so much so quickly. God is good to me. I am so very blessed. Everything in my life is not perfect, but I am remaining positive and looking to the hills where my help comes from.
I've had my metabolic panel and blood count done. My cardiologist has given me clearance. I'm on my pre-op diet, I have my psych eval scheduled for next week, I did my exercise physiology consult yesterday, and I just have to meet officially with the nutritionist to get my pre-op/post op eating plan.
I pray that things go smoothly. I'm sure they will. I'm trusting God for the best.
