Turn Out the Lights, The Pity Party is Over

If you really know me, you know that I am a very strong-willed, stubborn human being. I had surgery on January 9th and went back to work on January 14. I didn't go because I felt great, I went because I told everyone that I would. I didn't feel worth a darn to be honest,... Continue Reading →

Every Journey has Bumps and Bruises

I know I'm not the only person who has ever looked to God for his plan, had him show it to them, and then allowed them to pursue that path. This journey has been all about God and His blessing me around every corner. It's because of God that I am here in this moment.... Continue Reading →

Taking the Bad with the Good

Three days out. That's the terminology we use about how far we are from our surgery. My time in the hospital went so well (thanks to all of the prayer support) that I thought I was out of the woods when I came home. That was not the case. Last night was pretty rough, but... Continue Reading →

I am overwhelmed by the number of people who genuinely care... Continue Reading →

It’s Surgery Eve

On October 19, 2018, I met Dr. Walton and the WeightWise staff for the first time. I was given a check list of things to do before I could be a candidate for surgery. One of those things on the check list was to lose ten percent of my body weight, which was forty-one pounds.... Continue Reading →

A Good Anxiousness

As my surgery date gets closer, I get more anxious. Its not an anxiousness that keeps me awake at night thinking about the surgery itself, but more about how much I might actually change physically. It became even more real when a surgical nurse called me yesterday and finalized the do's and don'ts in preparing... Continue Reading →
