Well, I realize that it is late, and I should really be going to bed, but my sweetie and I have just returned from first playing with the girls outside, and then walking the girls back to the house, and then my sweetie and I heading out for a nice evening walk ourselves!
Before I tell you our walk, I want to tell you about our good news, and our bad news. Bad news first. Jason and I have gotten our final surgery dates today, which is good news, however, Jason’s date is 2 weeks later than he had originally thought so he is a little bummed about it. My date however, has been pushed out by a month!!! ACK!!! When I first found out, it ALMOST caused me to want to quit, but of course, my super-supportive husband came to my rescue, and I am NOT backing out now!!! 😉
So, for the good news. Well, Jason has made his surgery goal weight!! YEAH!! WHOO! HOO!!! I am soooo EXTREMELY PROUD OF HIM!!!! and for those of you keeping track means that he has lost 4 pounds this past week! AMAZING!!! Whatta man!! 😉 I did not make my goal weight this week, but I am only one pound away from my goal weight, so I will HAPPILY TAKE THAT!!! YEAH ME!!! LOL!! 😉
Getting back to our walk! While we were walking, my sweetie and I took turns saying out loud one goal that we hope to be able to achieve post surgery. With my sweetie’s permission, here are a couple of examples of things we came up with…
ME: I want to be able to touch my toes with my knees unbent
HIM: I want to be able to breathe while tying my shoes
ME: I want to ride the rides at a carnival and not have to worry that the lock won’t latch
HIM: I want to see that
ME: I want to be able to run a mile
HIM: I want to see someone from my past who made fun of me, and make them eat their words
ME: I want to see that
HIM: I want to be able to take a bike trip. A long one!
ME: Me too!
HIM: I want to go to a water park and not get stuck down a water slide
ME: I want to be able to keep up with my niece while swimming
HIM: I want to be able to buy tall clothes without having to buy big and tall clothes
ME: I want to be able to sit Indian-style in a movie theater seat
So, there you have it! I really am so thankful to be going through this journey with my sweetie!! I would never have made it this far without his love and support!!
I have said it before, but I will say it again, life is really good!!
Here is to a FABULOUS evening!!
If you want to have a different life, you have to live differently!
