I am about 3 Weeks away from surgery and getting very nervous. I have fought my weight all of my life and it has effected my health. Up and down on diets, people criticizing what you eat, everyone tells you to "Just Excercise" - I wish all of those things were that easy. I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive and 3 beautiful children who I want to be around for in the future. I am excited to say that my surgery has been approved and it is scheduled for June 10. I am very sad that I will be missing an annual Memorial Golf Tournament for one of our dear, dear friends that we lost, however I know he would tell me to get my butt in there and take care of myself.
I want to play softball again, take a walk without hurting, buy clothes that look good and take a picture without dreading when it gets developed. The picture on my blog is one of the pictures that my husband had us take as a family for Mothers Day. I loved everything he went through to get us together and on a day away to the ocean for family pictures however I just dreaded them coming in, unfortunately digital makes this a much quicker process LOL. I told him before you hang a family picture please give me a year to change how I look! Well the journey will begin in 3 weeks. YIKES!!
I feel like my biggest fight will be with myself because I love to cook and feed everyone! Well here is to new beginnings and progress with better health! Any advise is appreciated and I appreciate all of the posts that not only help encourage but also symptoms to be prepared for after surgery.
Here is to a New Beginning and many more years with my Husband, Children, Friends & Family!!
