Thankful Thread for 9/14 to 9/20



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! It's a new week! New thread!

Honestly, I am having trouble with things to be thankful for as I've been dealing with a lot of muscle and joint pain the past few days in both of my arms. My right arm feels like it's an RSI that I've dealt with intermittently in the past, though it hurts worse this time around. Not sure what is going on with my left shoulder. It has made sleep very difficult the past few nights. Coupled with a lower weight loss this week and reemergence of constipation and I've got a bit of the blahs going on.

That said, I am thankful for the amazing fresh fish market that's 30 minutes from my house for giving me delicious options for Protein.

I'm thankful for Halo Top/Nick's light ice creams for giving me a way to occasionally indulge in some ice cream without completely tanking my calorie count.

I'm thankful for the Favorite Grocery Items and food Before & After threads for all of the countless ideas for meals to make down the road.

And I'm thankful that my doctor didn't have an issue when I told him I wanted to talk about bariatric Vitamin options soon so that I can stop drinking these awful Celebrate 4-in-1 shakes.

I am thankful my back is not hurting. I was in agony Labor Day weekend...on vacation 😭😭

I am super happy to be able to work out at a gym.

More importantly, I am happiest about being able to exercise again. I hadn’t exercised regularly in years prior to surgery. Since surgery, I get some sort of cardio exercise 6 days a week.

I am excited for my dinner tonight😬 I had a super yummy salad last night and I get to have it again tonight! Will try to remember to post pics in food Before and After thread tonight. It was pretty much gone before I thought about it last night🤦‍♀️

As a long time foodie, I am so grateful I can still get excited about good food!

Thankful for family/friends/support systems, living in the technological age although (I grip about a yesteryear I never truly experienced) and repurposing skills

I'm thankful to have a super comfy bed to come home to after a long day. Who needs a man, when you've got a tempurpedic & fluffy pillows?

I'm just kidding, I'm not fancy enough for a tempurpedic, but I'm still thankful for my cushy knockoff Serta. ;)

I’m thankful for waking up each morning since my surgery, and knowing I have a new lease on life, with possibilities I haven’t dreamed of in over 20 years.

For a practically textbook surgery and recovery so far with no major complications, except minor pain around one incision.

And, for supportive family, friends, colleagues, and forum pals who’ve helped me along the way. You just never know how much something you write in this forum touches/helps others.

Thankful that the only nausea I've experienced since surgery was the evening of my first day.

Thankful that I was able to slip into a size 12 skirt that once belonged to my grandmother.

Thankful that I don't mind moving to a 3rd floor office since I'm not afraid of walking up 2 flights of stairs anymore.

I'm thankful that I'm now 3 weeks post plastic surgery...lower body lift and brachioplasty and my arms finally have stopped hurting! I'm thankful that I get my last 2 abdominal drains out on Friday...if they don't take them out at the dr's office, I'll take them out at home when they "accidentally" fall out!!
