I started pondering today about things I want to do once I settle into my new body. I realize it's going to take some time before that happens. I'm not (unfortunately) going to wake up from surgery and just be thin. But I can see on down the road......
Things I haven't done because I was either too big, too unhealthy, or too embarrassed because of my size to do them.
I want to take my kids horse back riding. I loved doing that as a child and teenager, and have never been able to take my own kids.
I want to ride a roller coaster with my kids. Since they have been old enough to ride them, I have been too big join them.
I want to take dance lessons.
I want to run in local races///fun runs.
I want to buy a bike and ride the trails with my husband.
I want to jump on our new trampoline with my boys.
I want to take my kids swimming without being so embarrassed to be seen in public in a bathing suit. And be able to go to a water park and actually RIDE on the slides instead of watching from the sides.
I want to be able to go into a clothing store and buy cute clothes. (No more ordering frumpy, boring clothes from a magazine or online.)
I want to mow the yard without having my feet hurt so bad the next day that I have to prop them up all day long.
I want to go ziplinning with my family!
So much I've missed out on. I can't wait.
