I did not feel like posting yesterday. No reason, just got lazy. I was on the forum, just reading, I really enjoy that.
Yesterday was Sunday, so my husband wanted us to start going to church. I best describe myself as a Christian, but I don't neccessarily think one needs to go to church every Sunday. However, I do enjoy it.
Yesterday the guest preacher talked about us being perfect, because we were created by God. I do believe that, but since God gave us free will and after all, we are only human, I don't necssarily see anything wrong with one wanting to improve himself. He mainly was talking about people in the magazines who are desperately skinny and the ones who have multiple plastic surgeries. There is a difference between what I am doing and someone who wants larger breasts and less facial wrinkles. Breasts and wrinkles do not result in serious health issues, like diabetes, heart dz, stroke, etc. But I do get it there is going to have to be a point were I am satisfied with who I am and what I look like.
I never wanted to be so thin, my ribs show!
Yuck. When I was a student nurse in college, we worked on a psych-medical unit.
A lot of the patients were anorexics. I mean, these were young girls my age at the time (18), who weighed no more than 80 or so pounds. I just thought how sad and what is going on with them that they don't want to eat! Well, that is what I was learning about. But none the less, I did not aspire to look like that or even close, ever!
I just want to be healthy, eat well, and live an active lifestlye. Not too much to ask but I do need to set a goal for myself before I actually go in for the surgery. I am thinking 165lbs would be good for me. That would be 100lbs less than I am now. We shall see..:thumbup:
