Good night world and all who inhabit it,
I am gearing up for my weight loss surgery. It will be taking place mid June. Some of you may know that there is a process to this weight loss surgery, the process isn’t bad. It is interesting . I have done my first 2 nutrition appointments and met with the surgeon. Next week I have , nutrition, psychiatrist and endoscopy. Since I started , I have been trying to make changes so that once I have the surgery its not so bad adjusting.
First up -no bubbles. Not supposed to have carbonated beverages so I cut out soda. I was drinking sparkling water to get the bubbles thinking it would help me, but I had to cut it. I have been drinking my 64 oz of water each day .
Protein – I am going to start getting some protein shakes since day 2- day 9 after surgery will be all shakes.
Anyways, I have been trying to get moving more and this week I have been really thinking about my Mum. Probably the impending Mother’s Day holiday.
I was driving along this weekend and I started squeezing my butt to the beat . I can hear my Mum now, her proudly proclaiming how she would do her butt squeezes to the beat of what ever song was on… Maybe if I keep it up, I will have ” Buns of Steel” lol.
I was cooking dinner the other night dancing around the kitchen, and all I could do was think of Mum. Dancing around to One Direction, no less. Ridiculous I know, but have you listened to them? So damn catchy! Current obsession is ” Steal my Girl” and “Perfect” . I ain’t too proud to admit I am a grown ass woman dancing around to a boy band that’s not NKOTB or Backstreet Boys. ( for the record, saw NKOTBSB in concert at Fenway Park – UNBELIEVABLE Show!)
Its these little things that I feel Mum shines through. I know I am probably searching for signs and finding them in places, but its comforting to an extent, like there are pieces of her here with us .
Like tonight, I was taking a ride to go see her, her headstone is in. I needed to see it in person. So I am driving along and ” Beast of Burden” by the Rolling Stones comes on . I don’t remember downloading it, could of been the hubs or maybe the kids, but in any case, there it was blaring out. My mother and I had this running joke – I was forever singing ” I’ll never be your BIG SUBURBAN ….” instead of Beast of Burden. So there I was crying my eyes out on the way to my mothers grave singing at the top of my lungs
” I’LL NEVER BE YOUR BIG SUBURBAN !!!”
I know she is always here with me, I just like when she reminds me in funny ways.
Back to my weight loss stuff – I am currently down 5 lbs! I am looking forward to the surgery . I know I have the best Guardian Angel on my side 🙂
Don’t Stop Believing !!!
