Well, another milestone in my life! I made it through Thanksgiving Day! I don’t know if I wrote about this in my previous blogs but let me tell you why making it through T-Day is a great thing for me. About two days after I got home from North Carolina, which was about a week after the surgery, I laid in bed one morning and did not want to get up! I was depressed and wondering what the heck my life was going to be like without food?!?!? Wondering what had I done? My husband came in to ask why I was not up and what was wrong! I broke down crying, I mean really sobbing! I told him, once I could talk, that I was upset because I am not going to be able to enjoy Thanksgiving anymore and what in the world would I do on Thanksgiving Day? I wouldn’t be able to eat, and then since I couldn’t eat, I was not going to cook! I cried and cried about Thanksgiving Day that morning! Well, the holiday came and went without any tears and yes, I ate! Not much, because I had been snacking on appetizers but I ate Thanksgiving dinner…. turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans, etc. little, little portions so I could get everything! I will say that I ate to fast and got a tummy ache! But went back for sweet potatoes later that night, and then had leftovers the next day. My favorite part is usually a good turkey sandwich, which I had Saturday, but only a half of one! I really feel like I have truly accomplished something by getting through this holiday! It was no problem! Eating right and in small portions is second nature to me now and I really don’t think twice about it! Gosh, what a different person I am today because of MGB! I don’t even know how to express my happiness and my willingness to want to “spread the word” about MGB!
Okay, my blogging buddy Mary has posted two different set of pictures and is on me about posting pictures! I truly have NO, and I mean NO pictures of me before! People were literally scared to take a picture of me because they knew I would kill them!!!! I took before shots to send in with my packet but they were taken about 6:30 in the morning, looking awfully bad! But, we will see, I need to look around and see if I can find some.
Life is good! I am officially a shopaholic and for myself and not for others now! My dad commented they other day that my shirt was a little low cut! I said, oh good! I have been dressing in a tent for the last 13 or so years! He just laughed at me and said, “Lord, help us all, she has lost her mind!”
Went to a good concert, Gwen Stefani and Black Eyed Peas, with a friend and our daughters! We danced and we made fools of ourselves! It was fun! Goodness, I love making up for all the things I have missed!
