2nd Surgiversary

Welp, today marks TWO years since I took the big plunge and decided to have gastric bypass.  I’m still grateful that I did it.

For now, that’s all I have to say.  It’s Friday, and I’m going to go EAT.  I walked first. 🙂

  1. Pretty sureal reading about the past. I had a feeling all that was going on but wasn’t certain. It seems to me that for the most part, for whatever reason, our first relationships are more about the mind rather than the heart. The need for acceptance takes over all rationale and gets the win for losing our self control. I myself went through the struggle with food /weight all for a boy. A boy I thought I’d marry. His mom had other plans and that was that. Broken. Confused. Unfortunately, my issues went into overdrive in my marriage. I didn’t want to be “rejected” ever again! I let my husband control every aspect of my person – down to who I could see, where I could go, what I could eat. But in some twisted way, it meant he loved me. And I believed it. Needless to say, he was never satisfied and so his control transferred to our children. Unfortunately, the kids and I could never measured up and he just didn’t come home. That was 2012.
    God had to take care of us and He did , and still is. I pray someday I find someone to love me as me but to be honest, I don’t even know who ‘me’ is. I am proud to say my kids are thriving ! My oldest is graduating from college this Friday. My middle is graduating high school with his associates in College…and my youngest is beautiful, smart, creative and too talented for words.
    I’m so happy for you Joy. I’m happy you didn’t settle. I’m happy you found someone to love you for you. I’m happy you went to college. I’m happy you’re a teacher. ( I just went back to get my credential- I’ll be teaching 4th grade this fall). So excited that God with all His love and faithfulness is seeing us through!💛
    Hugs to you Joy 💐


    1. I am JUST reading this now & it’s NOVEMBER! Sorry, I’m not so good at finding the comments section on my blog, because honestly, I have very few comments. I’m so happy that you are teaching now! How’s it going? Hang in there. Is it a public school?
