The Final new beginning.

Monday, March 12, 2012

Well I have been away awhile now but as some said in answer to my blog in past. It is never too late for a new beginning. I decided in Oct 2011 to really change my chances of a new success with weight loss surgery. I am now diagnosed with sleep apnea as well as all my other medical problems and would like my children to have a least one parent for a few more decades. I did the whole work up already and am having the surgery on March 28th.2012. I am already on the pre op diet and all of a sudden am losing weight faster than ever. I am looking foward to many things when I have lost the weight. Not having to buy two seats on an airplane, being able to fit in stadium seats, not having to ask for a table instead of a booth, being able to fit on the castle ride for Harry Potter, being able to buy cloths in a store and not having to order them on line.
Wanting to look at myself in the mirror and not just think of my self as a head. Feeling feminine again and not gender neutral.
I want to be healthy, have less pain, be able to do things again without wheezing. I am only 57 that is still young and I have the best retirement years before me. I want to be able to enjoy them. I want to see my kids marry and see my grandkids be born and grow. I know I have a lot of expectations but before I started Spark people I had no hope and now the world and my life are in front of me!!!! emoticon emoticon Betty

    I am glad that you are doing so well pre-op! So many women have had the lap band or sleeve or MGB.. I need to lose so much more, but do not have insurance to cover anythign so extravagant. I too, have many medical things going on, mostly genetic, but some from my fat. plain and simple,,
    I love to cook,bake, my grandmother and aunt won awards for thiers, I learned from them,,
    both died skinny, of course.. I would love to be your friend through Betty's new journey!

    keep us posted!!
