I’ve been thinking about this surgery and all the changes that will follow. There is so much I’m looking forward to. Some of the things I’m looking forward to are things I used to be able to do, and some of them are things I’ve never been able to do or enjoy because of my weight. Does that mean I’ve put my life on hold?
Hardly. If I had done that, I would not have accomplished half the things I have in my life–a marriage to a loving, supportive husband, solid friendships with legions of the best friends a girl could ask for, and a professional career in education that has so far exceeded any expectations I had going in. This life has been good to me indeed, but I firmly believe that post-surgery, life will be even sweeter than it already has been. And I anticipate being able to do and be so much more than I already am. So I thought I’d start a list and just add to it from time to time.
