As I am loosing I am gaining too

As of yesterday, my weight loss on my "official" scale at the Bariatric Center is 92 pounds in 7 months. That is an average of 3.2 pounds a week. The surgeon would say I am right on target. I have also lost 6 pant sizes, a half size in my shoes, and a total of 26 inches just since December30, 2009. As I reflect on what I have gained; I would have to say that I have gained a greater confidence in my self and an epiphany of joy in the last 6 or 7 months. I feel like my trust in the Lord has grown. Last week, I started having problems with my car radiator and I decided to leave it in my driveway. I trusted the Lord that he would work out how I would get to work and church. I began asking people for rides and my friends really came through. I asked the church if they could help me and pay for replacement of my car radiator. It usually takes 10-14 days for a check to be processed from the church benevolence fund. I asked if I could take my car after it had been repaired and if the mechanic could wait for the check to come from the church and they said yes. I was happily surprised. The Lord continues to provide for me. The kindergarten teacher that I worked with last year started Weight Watchers in January (She said I motivated her to join WW) gave me a bag of very nice clothes. I was surprised to find there was a pair of overalls in the bag. I have always wanted a pair of overalls. I am excited of all the other things that I will gain as God continues to take me on this journey.
