Minor Miracles

Jan 29, 2004

Thought it might be a good idea to start a list of the minor miracles that have occured to each of us since our surgeries. Need to figure out where to post it but I think it would be especially helpful as we get into the "blahs" to see what we have accomplished.

Example List:
Walking up stairs two at a time
Sitting at a booth at Outback
Getting off a medication
Walking a mile
20 minutes of aerobics
Wearing an XL shirt instead of XXL
Being happy

I love these people. I feel so good after 3 months I just wanted to hug Brett and Dr. Irgaau.

So I went to the office and got my official weigh-in. I was a little dissapointed in their scales (5 pounds heavier than mine at home), but even by their scales I have lost 65.4 pounds. That's the equivalent of both my dogs (corgis).

They were satisfied and I'm estactic. No problems to report.


It's funny to feel like boasting, but I still enjoy it. I have removed the word "diet" from my internal dictionary. I finally found a life that works!!
