Oooh!, you say! You want to lose weight? And do it in a short 30 days?
Well, I bet you don't want to lose it as I did.
How about this method?
Gall bladder surgery on an outpatient basis.
Followed by major surgery and an 8-day stay in the hospital, most of which is spent foodless.
Followed by a surprise trip back to the hospital for another 5-day stay, again on IVs and foodless.
Followed by a short, minor surgery on an outpatient basis.
Yep. Weight loss. Stepped on the scales today and I've lost 10 pounds in the past 30 days.
Did I say it was Easy? Ooooooh, Nooooo, this was not easy. And no matter how I respect their skill, I hope to never have to speak to a surgeon again.
Not that I'm averse to surgeons. They were needful in my situation. The past 30 days have been two steps forward, one step backward, preparing for events ahead that will hopefully keep me "on the mend".
I am extremely grateful that we live in a time when the medical establishment can do things for us that were totally unavailable to our grandparents. And I'm grateful for wisdom that God gives to those who work to bring us back to health.
