So many reasons to give thanks [Jul. 12th, 2008|08:49 am]
[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

1. I am healing beautifully.
2. dove and carryaway will be here during the day!
3. vivaine666 may show up in the afternoon or evening.
4. Yvonne may come over with sweet baby Traven (just under 1 year old).
5. I have a mail package to send a depressed friend that I think will cheer them up.
6. I am feeling much better and sleeping through the night.
7. I get my stitches out on Monday and get released to work.
8. I've officially made it through the hardest surgery without infection or complication.
9. I have a BMI of only 21! Talk about some breathing room. I should be branded as a "success" for WLS now if I ever have doubts. It's a HARD thing. I deserve to be proud of this. It's never finished. It's always in progress, but no matter what happens I have this moment where I have "done it".
10. I got a clear message from the universe and I'm listening. I'm loved. You know, it kind of hurts living with my heart more open, but it's worth it. I feel more on the good and bad sides. I'm thankful at the moment for feeling so much more than numb.

Thanks! I get the last stitches out on Monday. I'm looking forward to the last time I see Dr. Fake Laughing Overly Tanned.

You deserve to be proud. I haven't been following your journey long but you are a complete inspiration. And I agree with all the people who say you should write a book. I think your determination and hard work despite all of your pain stuff, could be an inspiration to people in all aspects of their life not only weight loss. Thank you for letting me read your journey :)
