I was feeling a little crabby on my birthday. ha ha ha, Just kidding. I felt pretty good. Had some family in and we went to an aquarium. My husband couldn't resist getting this picture.
Well, time is moving nicely and I am so ready for my visit with the surgeon on Friday the 21st. I am ready to get this show on the road. :)
Last week I took some time to read some more blogs. I am going to expound on what I said last time about the blogs of folks that have already gone thru the journey. Something I have noticed about reading them is that in the beginning, they HAD all the fears I have now. Can I do this? Will I fail at this too? Will my insurance give me the thumbs up? And then as I read each blog, the days go by, the months go by and I watch as they come to the realization of, "Yes, I AM doing this! I CAN succeed. I do have to put forth the effort, but with the help of the band, I can achieve my dreams." Reading these blogs has been like reading a book. The baseline story, the issues, the climax and then achieving the goal, only to make new goals and to live life. Oh how exciting. I got so into a blog the other day that something negative happened and I was heart broken. I'm so crazy. My point is, all your blogs are helping me see that I will get over those feelings and over any hurdles.
My husband expressed concern over me losing so much that I will look sickly (ha ha, I can't say I have ever had anyone worry like that over me before...well, not for that reason.) I think he see's all my determination and doesn't want me to get crazy................well, crazier. :) I told him, I just want to be comfortable. He looked at me like he wasn't sure what I meant. I said, you know that poofy hunting coat you hate because you look like Randy in Christmas Story....."I can't put my arms down..." He said yes and I said, that is how I feel all the time. I saw the light bulb come on over his head. I just want to be comfortable. Not Twiggy (or what ever her name was).
