Neicy’s In sight
Well after meeting with my orthopedic specialist yesterday and I finally stopped crying I’ve come to realize this has to be done and there is no other way around it and it is what it is. After she did more xrays of my foot and ankle she found that the arthritis has progressed into my big toe where I received an injection for pain relief. She took 45 minutes to explain my xrays and the procedure she will do. In essence my entire left foot will be reconstructed to bring it back to it’s proper position currently it points out to the left, there will be a cleaning out of the arthritis and debris, she will have to put screws in my ankle because I have no more cartilage and titanium plates in my foot, SMH I wasn’t expecting to hear about the plates, but it is what it is. The procedure will take 4-5 hours and I will not be able to use my foot for about 3 months in order to heal properly. She will meet with my family on the 23rd, to explain to them the procedure and my home care and answer any questions they may have. My surgery is scheduled for Oct. 3rd until then I must continue to wear the Arizona boot so I don’t brake or fracture the ankle it’s that fragile. So I solicit the prayers of my friends, family, church family. I must be honest in saying this is weighing heavy on me, my quality of life right now is not sitting well mentally with me. Thanks to those of you who took the time to read my post and who are praying and will continue to pray for me.
This is the day that the Lord hath made I will rejoice and be glad in it! today is my 54th birthday and I’m glad to see it, I had so many who I knew at my age that didn’t make it to this age. Life is truly a blessing and I thank God daily for mine aches, pains, ups and downs and all. I didn’t plan anything special I’m just happy to be here with the love of my family. My gifts were a surprise from my hubby a 2015 Kia Sorento SUV loaded, my baby girl gave me the purse I wanted out of her boutique I got cash from my oldest brother and my oldest is surprising me with something later, but all in all I got the best gift, the gift of a blessed life handed down to me by God. Happy Birthday to me, Thank you Jesus
A FACEBOOK POST I DID
In my private times of reading and meditating on the Word of God, I struggle with trying to keep my focus on Him when I see and hear so many in the ministry walking out and taking the reins from God doing their own thing and going their own way. I am reminded that His Word tells us that “there is none righteous, not one” and that we are not to “put our trust in no man” and that “WE ALL” shall be held accountable for the things we do good or bad. I’m just in awe at some things people post here on Facebook when it comes to trying to reach the lost, saving souls, leading people to Christ, in the bible it also tells us that “the tongue is an unruly vessel and no man can tame it” but IF we who are called by God are walking, talking, and teaching in the Spirit of God we would never speak offensively to others, in my opinion that would be their flesh talking and NOT The Holy Spirit. When your trying to reach people and build them up in their most holy faith as the Word of The Lord tells us to do, lashing out at people will only cause them to run from you, your ministry etc... And then others in ministry may even look at you sideways if they know that what you did is a true offense to others. WE all need to go back and reexamine ourselves and ask God to show us our errors and get it right! I for one am sick and tired of people playing games with ministry. But again, I’m not God I wasn’t there when He called you, if in fact it was His voice doing the calling, but we need to stop offending people because we are feeling some kind of way, you don’t know other peoples story, what they are dealing with, or where they may be in their life trials. We as Christians are suppose to show love agape love to ALL no matter what!!!
Titles mean nothing in the eyes of God, what he looks for is dedication to him, and the way WE walk out the call he has put on our lives. Being in leadership in any position is a load to carry, but just because you carry a certain position does not give you or anyone the right to offend others. Jesus said “I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have drawn you with unfailing kindness” Jer. 31:3 if this is how Jesus did and WE who are called by HIS name, aren’t we too suppose to draw people with love and kindness instead of offending them??? I’m just saying I’m seeing and hearing too many people getting in their own way and being puffed up because of who they think they are. And for those who follow them and jolly in their wrong doings will have to answer for it as well at some point when will correction come in to play? We all need to be told the truth when we‘re in error it’s not funny to offend people. Go have several seats and rethink on your self, and who you just like we all have to answer to in the end.
“HAPPY FRIDAY, people!”
Hey my Fab friends, I tried to log in as much as I could prior to my knee surgery but things got in the way. Well I had my knee surgery on 4/24 and it went well. I’m now in my 4th day of recovery at home. I’m doing well just still sore of course and the knee still has a lot of swelling but I’m healing. I hope this procedure works if not the doctor says he will go on and replace the knee. My family is very supportive and is here helping me in my recovery. My granddaughter Jadyn is the main nurse in this LOL, she is calling all the shots with my hubby and my daughters. She was with me from the day of surgery until just yesterday when she had to leave me and go home for school. She cried because she had to leave me she is such a great grandchild. Well I’m bored out of my mind but I do have my book to work on and write letters. I just can’t wait to get back to the gym. My appetite isn’t the greatest, so I hope I’m still losing the weight in my recovery. I really miss going to the gym and I can’t wait to get back to my workouts. Well I hope all of you are doing well and are having a good Spring so far.
It seems that it has been a long road for me in this weight-loss battle, I joined a new gym in January and has been faithfully going 4-5 times a week. I got used to going and was enjoying the workouts and the people I’ve met along the way.I even workout with my Fitbit One Tracker which is a blessing to me. Then I began to get discouraged because it seemed like I wasn’t losing any weight. I thought my metabolism had died on me or something so last month while visiting my doctor I shared with him about my workouts and how I wasn’t seeing any results from my hard work. He told me to change my calorie intake amount and so I did. After a month a went to see him today and lo’ and behold I’ve lost 7lbs. Yaaaay!!!! I am so happy and I was about to give up. Now I have faith in my meal plan and my workouts. I’m going to get to that goal, but in the meantime it’s work, work, work!
Since the first week of January I’ve been going to the gym. I’ve been on this journey to weight-loss for a while but never incorporated the workouts. Well since my hubby let me change my membership from Fitness19 to planet Fitness I practically go every day. I never thought I’d like something that hurts so bad so good lol. I’m encouraged and determined to win this thing. I’ve also joined a few groups on Facebook for the Fit-Bit tracker and it is truly rewarding to see the diligence in all the members. We all are trying to reach our daily goals in steps, miles, and stair climbs, and I tell you it’s more than a notion, but it’s so much fun in doing it, it keeps me motivated.
I’ve also learned to eat differently and making healthier choices, and getting that water in (I’m not a big water fan) but I’m getting it in. I’ve put down the pop, in fact I’ve been making and drinking those detox waters using fresh fruits and herbs, they are delicious and healthier for me. My goal is to lose at least 150 lbs. by my birthday next year, and I’m going to get there. So far I’ve lost 7 lbs, but I haven’t weighed in a while so who knows where I am now!
I’m not going to weigh in again until the end of this month. Well I’m off to prepare for my gym workout have a great week!
