"I'm a Jesus Girl who can step on the scale and simply see an indication of how much my body weighs - not the worth of who I am!" Lysa Terkheurst

On July 9th I had Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery and this is my journey! I want to be clear that I DO NOT think this surgery is a quick-fix for weightloss and every possible means should be taken before even considering this path. It is VERY difficult and if I knew then what I know now, I would have done more to lose the weight on my own! Having said that, I'm thankful for my new healthier life and am accepting and taking charge of MY weightloss journey! And... ALL the glory and honour goes to GOD!

One Year Surgiversary!

Happy Surgiversary to me!!!  Today is one year since I had Roux-En-Y surgery.  I lost 1.5 lbs in the past month so that's a total of 150lbs!  I feel like a new person.  I love being able to run around with the kids, be more active, cross my legs, and wear clothes that actually makes me feel like a woman.  I was blessed today to be able spend the day at The Calgary Stampede with my two sisters and our husbands.  I'm not going to say a lot today, only THANK YOU for all the support.  I could not have made it through this year without your support.

To celebrate, my brother-in-law, Jeremy treated me to a ride on the biggest ride at the Stampede.  There is NO WAY I would have been able to do this a year ago.  Thank you Jeremy for helping me realize a dream I've had for most of my life!  I missed out on so many rides and special things because of my weight.  I hope I never have to miss out on life again due to being overweight!

Here are some pictures to celebrate the day!

Total Loss: 150lbs!!!!!
