I Started this journey about 2 maybe 3 years ago. I researched all the information but i never had the courage to go through with it. I'm so happy a friend told me about this website. because i'm closer to my surgery because of this site. I feel so welcomed here. thanks to my new family. I also went on my first appoint ment one more test with the cardio doc and i'm on my way.
over 150lbs lost
1. Faith is the ability to not panic.
2. If you worry, you didn't pray. If you pray, don't worry.
3. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home every day.
4. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.
5. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.
6. Do the math. Count your blessings.
7. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
8. Dear God: I have a problem. It's me.
9. Silence is often misinterpreted, but never misquoted.
10. Laugh every day, it's like inner jogging.
11. The most important things in your home are the people.
12. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.
13 There is no key to happiness. The door is always open. Come on in.
14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.
15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
16. We do not remember days, but moments. Life moves too fast, so enjoy your precious moments.
17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it, otherwise it's just hearsay.
18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.
19. Surviving and living your life successfully require courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.
20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting
I had a pcp appointment today it went well. I told her i was considering wls. she said thats great. I asked her if she has other paients that have had the surgery she told me yes. I ask her if she had a good surgeon she said yes.
I received a call from my pcp office asking me to come in for my referals. She did it that fast thank you lord.
went in to see the cardio doc. he ran tests ekg and put me on a 24 hour monitor.
Went back to cardio doc. he wanted the montior back and also ran a ehco test. my next test is the stress test on 7/06/05
I also have a appoinment on 6/27/05 with the surgeon god is soooo good to me everything is moving fast the way i need it because when you have all these doc visits to do and you have a long wait it makes you loose focus. I want this sooo bad i can feel it in my bones.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD. KEEP THE FAITH HE SAID HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE US OR FORSAKE US NOT EVEN IN THE END OF THE WORLD.

I feel great all but being a little morning sick every now and then. I went to the doctor last week after taking a home pregnancy test which read postive. so that means i am having a presious little baby. I thank God for that becuase with him all things are possible. We didn't plan it but we don't hold our future God does so with that being said to find out that I'm pregnant it was a pleasent surprise. Thank you lord for all your blessings. I still have some work to do but I have come a long way.I'm sure i will reach my goal after the baby. take care and may God bless
11/1/06well my good news has turned bad. I lost the little presious life i was carring. i was upset but God knows best. maybe my body was not ready the answer i will never know. but i do know the doctor said it was not wls related. I was 10 weeks and the baby had no heart beat after 7 weeks. so it is what it is. I'm moving on and I know that God has something for me and my family that will replace the loss of our angel.
