I am three weeks out from surgery today and I feel amazing!
When I gave myself the ol' grin and wink in the mirror this morning (which, by the way, we should all do on account of our collective awesomeness) I noticed something.
I have dimples. As I attained porkosaurus status they kind of disappeared into the chub landscape. Today, I saw them again!
I feel good, I've lost weight and inches, but that little divot in my face has thrilled me beyond belief.
That's awesome! What a great feeling.
I caught myself in the mirror the other day and for a minute didn't recognize myself! LOL I actually have a neck!
