This new stomach, it's only a tool. There are no guarantees that after all this, I will lose weight.
But, I gave it my best shot and I'm ready for the next health professional who suggests that I lose weight and resorts to scare tactics such as "you are going to die from heart disease". Bring 'em on, I'm waiting.
I have come full-cycle now with using this blog as a way to keep everyone posted on my progress.
I'm fine. I really am. I'm back in the groove, ready to get together with friends again, go to movies, take walks, entertain. Thanks for checking in and caring. This stuff can be boring. Trust me. My own daughter gave up being interested within the first week. My son asks once in a while. My father thinks I had something done to my foot, for what reason I do not know, but he's deemed me all put-back together so he's moved on.
So, I'll update from time to time but from now on, I'm returning to writing about other stuff and other people and there will be times when I write about gratitude because that's the most important thing in the world. I'm so grateful to my friends who showed their love and their concern. About that, I could write an entire book.
We dodged a big bullet yesterday. The Nor'easter that was headed our way with the promise of many inches of new snow, materialized in the form of an ocean's worth of rain and wind. The sky is blue, the air crisp, and the sun is shining. The promise of Spring has returned and with it, let's hope the patio contractor returns soon to complete the job. I can't wait to have our new patio so that we can fill it with good times and our beautiful array of friends.
Gotta go. I'm still hungry. Remember.....I tried!!!!!
