The title says it all about what this post is about. I’m extremely sorry for falling short with my lack of blog posts. I have been working more lately, but also I’m in the pre-op stages of having surgery; Gastric Bypass to be exact.
It’s a decision and a process that has been in place for almost a year. Now I’m in the very last stages of approaching the upcoming surgery date.
As I have shared at one point, I had a mini-stroke and through a lot of prayer, lifestyle changes, etc, the bypass was the best option, especially since it would put my diabetes into remission (Lord willing) and also to eliminate or put into remission my sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc). It’s been a long journey and I had to get over my pride and myself and take the steps to get myself healthy.
I needed restrictions and I know that with the gastric bypass, if you eat sweets or the wrong thing period, I’ll get sick, I will endure the dumping syndrome.
Let it be known that I am not during this as a quick fix, which is the common misconception in regards to gastric bypass, it’s a tool to help with weight loss. Some folks, like myself, need this tool to successfully lose weight and to keep it off. Changing my eating habits and exercising wasn’t doing it alone, so this tool will help get me on the path of being even more healthy and also make it possible for me to have a successful pregnancy, when the time comes of course.
I’m asking for prayer in this journey, because the journey will be forever until the Lord calls me home to be with him. I’m ready and through prayer and faith through our Lord and Savior, I know that the battle will be won.
I’ll keep everyone posted, but also I will try to post more, because I know that my ministry with this blog is not done yet, because souls still need to be saved. I just wanted to give a clear explanation in regards to my long winded AWOL. I really do suck at blogging, but I will definitely try to post more.
Until next time,
