Venus



Recommended Posts

Did anyone see Venus this morning? It was shining soooo brightly. Just gorgeous!

I was taking a walk before sunrise and I was shocked at how brilliant it was. Didn't recognize it as Venus because it was so bright. Had to google it.

No, I didn't have my phone with me. But my hands are so shaky the pics would have been a blur anyway ☹️

Sure it was beautiful, that's why it was named after Mythology's Most Lovely Goddess.

Did it look like the Christmas star by any chance? (and why are your hands shaky?)

Yup! Christmas star! Kept looking around for the wise men, but I guess (being wise) they were all still asleep 😉

My hands have always been shaky. Good thing I didn't aspire to be a surgeon!

Hey will you get someone to take a pic and post it for us here? I keep trying to find (we didn't take pics in those days) an image of the night sky during 1974 or 1975 Christmas. A HUGE Christmas "Star" was in the sky and burned through the day. It was so close to earth and so bright. I remember we all would stand at the window or outside and look up at it. There were several programs about it at different churches too. Supposed to be the conjunction of a few planets/stars maybe? Can't find anything about it now. So would be totes cool if it's happening again. I will look for Venus tonight!

Nope, gotta get up early. Apparently, it's been very bright for a while now, but I haven't been taking my pre-dawn walks since the last surgery.

NBD, I'm used to it. If I plan to take pics, I bring a tripod.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.
