I just love how folks are living their lives these days. So often I think of the time I wasted by being sick and obese. But then I say to myself that I wouldn't be the person I am today without going through the darkness to come out into the light.

Today, my friend and I are going to Lincoln Center to see Giselle. It's one of my most favorite ballets and today, I can just enjoy it without worrying about the things that I used to think about like being able to get a cab because now I can get around town by subway just as easily as pie these days. I can walk up that beautiful staircase of the Metropolitan Opera House instead of having to take the elevator. We can stroll over to Columbus Circle after the ballet and I won't be struggling to walk.

We'll go to Mari Vanna tonight for yummy Russian food and I know I'll enjoy it without overeating. I'll walk out of that restaurant with my head held high and totally in control over choices and portions. Then when I wake up tomorrow, I won't feel horrible and guilty for once again, not being able to control myself.

Life is good. Have a great Saturday everyone and hopefully you are enjoying weather that is as spectacular as we are having here in NYC.

PS: If I get a chance, I'll take a picture of The Met and the fountain and upload it for you guys. If anyone remembers Moonstruck, that's where Cher and Nicholas Cage met up before seeing La Boheme.

I agree with Gowalking life is good. It's funny though I didn't realize how good life could be till my band lol. Always thought I had a good life even with the extra weight but it's better now hard to explain but it and I know you all understand in a way no one else can !!!

I mean my inner circle of friends are the same I'm the same inside but it's better :)

I had another birthday celebration last night with my closest girlfriends and their adorable babies. And we all commented how things have changed for all of us the three of them motherhood and me mehood lol. Two years ago a birthday celebration would involve lots of food and drinking at a bar club restaurant etc. Last night we did take out a quiet night in with great company as I drank my warm Water (band was not happy due to stress from a home improvement project) side note I know that my band wants me to be happy cause when I'm stressed and unhappy it is too:(

and it was the best birthday to date. I spent the day/night with closet girlfriends and the babies. Rocked my bday tiara with the goofy decorations loved my Disney princess sparkle like a princess decorations :) and that's what I'm doing sparkling smiling glueing with happiness it's all the same!!

And looking at the pictures of me from last night still can't believe that's me so much as changed in a year.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
