I'm praying i will be approved by my insurance company to have the sleeve procedure. I'm so scared it won't happen. Can you pray for me?

I get not PUSHING beliefs on others, but i dont feel any of your posts have ever done this. There are people talking about being vegan after surgery, just because I am not vegan doesnt mean i cant read or need to be offended that they are different. Whats going to happen if a non Christian reads your post? Will it burn holes through their retinas, no! I feel that whether i share it or not, if someone is using their beliefs in a positive way, there is no harm done. This world needs as much POSITIVITY as it can get! I welcome, thoughts, vibes, prayers to whatever god u believe in, because the fact that you took a minute of YOUR day to do something positive for me is very thoughtful. Just my opinion......

2 hours ago, The Preacher said:

I have been praying about this, and really feel led to do it.

I have been criticized for sharing my faith in Jesus Christ on this website, I truly do respect others feelings because it certainly is their right to believe or not to believe, even God does not force one to believe in Him, it must be of one's own free will.

I feel deeply that there are some on here that would love to be prayed for, before surgery, during surgery and after surgery, so here's what I am willing to do, if I can be of some comfort to anyone, please email me at brotherron98@gmail.com

I assure you that I do have a personal and close relationship with the Lord, he does and always has answered my prayers, and I'm sure as long as I walk in his ways, he will continue to answer them, so please if I can help you in any way, email me.

Sincerely, The Preacher.

I'd like to add my prayers to that as well. Where there are two or more gathered...

As you know in a little,more than 2 weeks I will,be having my Bariatric surgery after 3 years of planning , trying, and continuing to try for I believe this is something the Lord has planned for me.
My friends, I ask that the Great Physician "Scrubs" in with my surgeon. That with his help my surgeon's hands will be swift, sure and true. And that I be restored to health that I may continue to be of service to,others. And that God's purpose and plan for,my life continues .🙏Amen and amen!

I've been on this website since January and never seen someone criticize another person for praying. I've seen people say "I'm not religious so please don't pray for me" but that is more of creating boundaries instead of a personal attack.

I don't believe in prayer yet here I am reading this post and saying go for it. If it betters yourself and those around you then don't hesitate to do it. I've had many people of different beliefs pray for me when I got my surgery and I didn't mind because they were doing it out of kindness.

I'd welcome your prayers on Thursday when I have my sleeve surgery here in Colorado Springs! Like someone else said in this thread, I'm praying that the Lord scrubs in with my surgeon and has His hand on this whole journey!

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
