Sunday 4/24

Apr 25, 2010

Here I sit on another Sunday afternoon, but this time with something to look forward to. I prayed to the Lord to lead me on the path he wanted me to take ...Either to lose the weight myself or to have the surgery. He gave me my answer on Wednesday.
Now I have not said it, but I am a person of strong FAITH. I am a catholic and proud of it. When I had two major surgeries 2 yrs ago, I gave up trying to control my life because I knew who really was in control. I know a lot of you are probably saying what a Wacko...But let me tell you...I made it thru both those surgeries and without any complications thanks be to the Lord. After 4 months of recouperation, I lost my youngest son. Instead of getting mad at God I threw myself into my faith. I even started working for the church and yes I grew stronger. I still have my weak moments when I think of my son Johnny...The one in the picture is my oldest son Paul.
Yes things are tough, you feel so alone when tragedies happen but you don't realize things happen to others too , not only you. Love you all, ♥ Susan

The Journey

Apr 20, 2010

The journey ahead is going to be a battle because I have a lot of obstacles in my path...But you know what, this is it...I am going for the Gold on this one. I will win this battle with my weight once and for all.
For the last 10 years I have done nothing but worry about taking care of everybody but myself and you know where it got me...A huge mess. Here I am morbidly Obese and no one to blame but myself because I just let myself go especially in the last 2 years.
I lost my youngest son Johnny who was 25 in February 2008. I lost my younger brother John 47 in March 2008 a month later and it has been downhill until February of this year when I got so sick and did not realize that with all the weight I had put on, I had to really do something. I know if I don't change things now, I won't be around to change them in the future.
I went to the Dr. and my weight had climbed from 234 in 2007 to 285 in February 2010. I tested positive for Type 2 diabetes. I knew now it was serious. Don't ask me why because I can only say that the pain from losing my son was so immense...I just gave up.
