Yesterday I saw a patient that I h e known for several years. She complimented me on my weight loss and I told her that we put the house on the market. Then she asked if I was getting a divorce. I told her no and she apologized profusely. She said people often make big changes after something like a divorce. I have thought about it and realize how nice it is to be making positive changes just because. This year will be one of the most life changing ones in many years. Selling my home means I will be leaving the state I was born in and all the friends I have made here. Before the weight loss I would have found this much more difficult. I feel like now I may be able to make new friends without being as self conscious. In fact I started going to the gym before work with a workout buddy. I guess that is my first real out of state friend. I do know my coworkers but you never really know if they would be your friends if you didn’t work together. (Pretty sure a few of them would be, I’m lucky to work with such a great group). The house has only been on the market for a couple of days so I have no idea how things will play out. I am optimistic though. 2019 was the start of something great.
