12/29/11 was my one year anniversary. I didn't spend it the way I had planned so many times while accumulating 800+ miles walking/jogging and 16,000+ minutes exercising. Instead, I entered the second day of a 40 hour fast, (the last 13 hours without even water) in preparation for a colonostophy......yikes!!!
They did give me a glass of water and a blueberry muffin after I woke up from the anesthesia ....woop-dee-doo!
The funny thing is, I would not have even had the procedure if I hadn't lost 75 lbs in my first year of changing to a healthy, fit lifestyle I learned from you and SP. I made the decision to have the test done back in late October but the only date available in 2011 was 12/29/11 at 1:00pm...my one year anniversary.
Today I was able to complete my full 90 minute workout, enter my goals for 2012, and complete a whole bunch of errands.....another good day, thank you God!
Tomorrow night I will take my lovely wife of 40 years out to a great nightclub for dinner and dancing with two couples we have known for last 30 years. It will the first time in over 10 years we have done NYE up big like we used to. My wife was always up for it but having been well over 300lbs all those years...I wasn't.
"Thank you" aren't big enough words to express how grateful I am for the support of my spark buddies.
May we both be healthy and fit at this time next year, Happy New Year!
