Dr. Woodman (my bariatric surgeon) approved my surgery for August 10th @ 7:30 in the morning. I pray that he doesn't change it. He informed me that he wanted me to loose just 3# before surgery. I know I can do that.
I gained 8lbs since the last time I was in the office in April. I have to admit I have been eating stuff that I know isn't good for me. Cake and not just one small piece, ice cream, and lets not even mention all I ate for the 4th. Nevertheless its time to get back on the wagon and drive straight. Which leads me to my next comment.....
Draz, had me in tears just a few minutes ago. I can't explain what came over me, but I just broke down. I'm talking about that take a deep breath and shutter sob type of cry. Tears just ran down my face as I typed my comment after reading her post on running. I think what hit home the most with her post is this paragraph:
The theory is – life just *is*…but it doesn’t matter….do what you have to do anyway. It really doesn’t matter if it’s raining – you can still run. It really doesn’t matter if life isn’t fair – you can still live like it is. Nothing matters enough to make me quit or to make me stop learning, growing, thriving and loving. It’s basically a way of taking every excuse for every single part of your life and saying “yah, but it doesn’t matter.” – so get up and get going.
There is so much going on in my life and I think today I just got overwhelmed. After reading Draz's post, I now know that it doesn't matter. I have to do whatever it is anyway. I am stronger because of the things I've been through and I know this.
Draz thank you for who you are and for inspiring me today.
