What lesson am I most grateful for experiencing?

I would have to say learning to read as a kid. I wanted it so bad and my kindergarten teacher secretly taught a group of who ere ready. We weren't supposed to have these lessons till first grade. Thank you Mrs, Blackburn.

What place have you traveled that you are most grateful for?

I haven't traveled very much but I guess Burlington VT is the place because it is where my sister lives.

What are you most grateful for in your childhood?

Again I would have to say reading. Reading has saved my life over the years.

What movie are you most grateful for?

Hmmmm, I love movies. I had a few dark movies that I was obsessed with one of which was Insomnia (the Swedish version). I also like a French movie called An Affair of Love in English. I loved Serge Lopez in that film.

Day 11: We were planning to go to Austin today for lunch and a visit to the Viet Nam Veterans Memorial but the nasty weather has us rethinking that plan. Probably just take the Mr. out for for a meal locally to Celebrate.

In terms of a movie that I am grateful for it would have to be "Steel Magnolias" and "The Bridges of Madison County" because I can watch them over and over and always have a good ugly cry 😂. "Pretty Woman" is another favorite.

@MIZ60 I happen to have spent some time around the actual covered bridges in Madison County, Iowa when I was a teen. In fact, I even know where someone carved the initials of myself and my hubby inside a heart on one years before the book or the movie. (He, of course, wouldn't do that now. Young Love...) 💘

Shhhh... don't tell!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
