So I had my LASIK surgery. Originally, it was a goal for reaching 185 but I had to switch it with my 200 goal. I'd already set aside the money in my flexible spending account for this year and didn't want to risk losing it. I was getting very close to the goal so I went ahead and scheduled the surgery. I did reach my goal a week or so before surgery but have since gained a little bit back.

It's been almost 3 weeks since and I have to save I absolutely love it. My face seems kinda "full" to me now that I don't have classes to hide behind but I also haven't been experiement with makeup too much yet as I'm rather afraid it will get in my eyes.

I've not been eating very well for the past two weeks or so, although this week has been better than the last. I was feeling rather yucky and I knew right away what the problem was so I could make changes. Its funny how all the processed foods make you feel. No wonder they thought I had fibromyalgia.

The goods news is that despite the weight going back up a bit, I'm evidently still going down clothing wise. I went shopping this past weekend and found some surprises. I got a Size 12 pair of shorts from Torrid (which to be fair is probably more like a 14 or 16 in normal sizes). But I also got a shirt and skirt from guess in XL juniors and guess is a brand that typically runs rather small.

And now to the exciting news. I'm incredibly nervous but tonight after years of saying I was going to I am taking a belly dance class. I really hope I don't talk myself out of going between now and then as this is the kind of anxiety that effects me the worst - new situations with no backup support. I know that if I work up the courage to go though I will have a blast and get in a great workout.

    Wow, lasik for reward, I wish I have that, must be nice to see the world without relying on an equipment (glasses, contact lens) :D But then, my eyesights not too bad so far so perhaps I will get another type of reward :D

    Have fun at the belly dance class!

    I hope you did go to the belly dancing class! How did it go? That's something I'd like to do as well; I hope you had a great time!

    How exciting for you! I had LASIK in one eye, the other was 20/25 so it was left for close-up sight. I love not wearing glasses. Now 7 years later I need to get it done in my other I so I can really see close -up after turning 50.
    And have a great time belly fun! emoticon
