Nsv - Celebration Of Life Dinner/dance



Recommended Posts

Per request (LOL)... I've attached pictures from last night's event (I don't know how to make them small.. SORRY)post-12668-13813658339742_thumb.jpg... I had sooo much fun!!! These are my NSVs from last night...

  • My dress is 3 sizes smaller that what I would have purchased in November!!
  • I did not struggle to put on "cheap" pantyhose for the first time in my life!!! I bought them from Walgreens.. 3 bucks!!! Not 20!!!
  • I wore my heels for over 6 hours... (They are too big... they 2" peep toe slings... in the last hole!!)
  • I wasn't dropped off at the door, we parked towards the back of this huge lot and I walked to the place and then to the car afterwards
  • I was complimented all night about my dress and personality... I didn't try to diminish it or find something wrong with myself... Is said Thank You and kept is moving (this is HUGE for me!!) The photographer there told my BFF, "This girl is something else
  • I was okay w/ not choosing to eat what was placed before me.. The conversation and interaction was so engaging, that I literally forgot to eat... (I did have fish and broccoli)
  • I saw my WL doctor, my surgeon and nurse practitioner... They all talked about how good I looked and that I look happy... This encouraged me a lot.. I've been struggling w/ submitting to the journey and not trying to win a race!!

It was nice to see a lot of people from my support group.. And to just enjoy the evening... I'm looking forward to next year's Dinner/Dance so I can take plenty of comparison shots!!!!

Thanks guys for all of your support and encouragement.. I truly appreciate it!!

You look awesome and sound truly happy. Great positive attitude also. I am glad you enjoyed the dinner and dance. It is a new experience to not eat everything placed in front of you and to actually enjoy the activities. Keep up the great work.

You do look amazing, and you are STILL rocking that million dollar smile! I love your comment about submitting to the journey! That's what we all struggle so hard to be able to do. I think sometimes we just need to sit back and let it happen! :)

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      Good Morning! Today is the first day of my liver shrinking diet!  It is hard being in the office and in my classes thinking about my old habits. But surgery is so close so can't complain too much! !10 days away!! Here we go.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
