I am looking forward to wanting to be in a picture with my kids!

No more excuses for not doing certian activities with my 8 and 11 yr old when I am really too fat or out of shape but won't say it.

to be able to buy cute in style clothing and a dress that I can feel confident to wear... so I won't advoid dress up situations.

to wear a pair of Levis with cowboy boots! and take a line dancing class!

Gosh I could go on and on!

Shopping at Hot Topic instead of Torrid

....Or Any other store where a size 2 cost so much cheaper then a size 20.

Being able to wear a regular size necklace or braclet and not feeling like its gonna choke me or cut off my circulation.

the ability to feel sexy, and wear thongs again.

Being able to go get a bikini wax and fit on those tiny table/beds.

To be able to buy clothes in a regular size not 16 or above!

Being able to walk up a flight of stairs and not be out of breath.

To sit in the same room as hubbys 3 sisters and not feel like a FAT cow!!! They are all skiny size 4-6.

Same with me I could go on and on!

These are all GREAT and I agree completely with all of them!

Here are a few of mine:

~NOT lift up my belly in the shower to clean it and not worry about having to put powder there before I get dressed so I don't get a rash... same goes with under the boobs, back fat and any other "roll" areas! SICK of that!!!

~NOT constantly having to adjust my bra because I have "overflow" somewhere.. either the back above or below or hanging out the front making those awful bumps, etc....

~NOT wearing some old lady bathing suit "dress" in the pool

~NOT having my children come up to me and "jiggle" certain areas of my body and giggle. (they are little and don't realize it's not really appropriate to do)

~having my husband LOOK at me in "that way" again...

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
