Today is the beginning of my journal, FOR ME....

Saturday, June 09, 2012

Well, Is this suppose to be easy?? Putting all of me out here for the world to see?? I am working on a new me!!! I have made a commitment to myself to LIVE... I don't want to end up dead in my 50's all because I was NOT taking care of me, like my mom and her younger brother did. I have promised myself that I will put me and my health before others needs wants and demands. I have never been able to do that ever since I was a child because I was always being told "Now be a good girl and take care of your mom" I would watch her sit and consistently self abuse herself and not take care of her health as the Doctors told her to do. I will NOT be that person, I deserve better and I owe it to myself. "GOD" has opened this door for me and I fully intend to walk through it with my head held high and I know it wont be easy, as it has not been so far. I am all that I have and I want to be the best that I can be so that I can be a better mommy to my wonderful 4 legged babies. I am scared and excited to be on this journey through weight loss surgery and finding me along the way. I love life and all that it has to offer, and so far I have lived a very amazing life doing for others and taking care of others do you see a pattern here???? I matter just as much as in fact I actually matter MORE than anyone else because it will help me to be a better human being all around. I Want to be healthy, and that is the biggest thing. I want to be able to walk my babies around the block, and I want to be able to go back to work even if it is part time only. I am not assuming that these thing can all be achieved with weight loss surgery but I am hoping that it is a start to help me achieve my goals. Well until next time TTFN....
