Friday! But for retired people it's hard to tell. It's clear and cold this morning. I have another project to start, but am feeling a bit languid -- I think its the major medication change. My DH reminded me it takes about 2 weeks to get used to changes, but I am not a patient person, apparently.

QOTD: If you could change on thing about your physical appearance (without surgery), what would it be? And how would that change effect your life overall.

Mine would be my hair. I always had a ton of thick black wavy hair, and two separate chemo courses, plus aging, plus the VGS has thinned it, primarily on the top. I am okay with the gray/white/silver/black mix, but wish there was more.

While it wouldn't make me a kinder woman, nor make me smarter, it would certainly make me less self conscious. Of course, I remind myself that probably no one is paying it much mind but me. Maybe its growing up in the 60s-70s, where it was all about hair.

B: Chobani key lime greek yogurt

S: Coffee with Premier protein shake

L: TunaCreation salad

S: Peanut Butter on a spoon

D: Leftover homemade thin pizza --

Good morning, Annie. It's bitterly cold here today... I have to remind myself that it's January and this is normal.

QOTD: I would be taller - not for vanity sake, particularly, but because I always struggle to get things out of a cabinet, etc.

B: cheerios

L: 1/2 chicken salad and small brocc cheddar soup from Panera...ate around the bread and 1/2 the soup and I'm too full.

D: leftover chinese - mala chicken with lots of nice veggies

E: possibly a short walk. it's windy on top of the cold, so it's iffy

Happy it's friday!!

I am almost 5'4", but lots of things are out of reach (T-rex arms?). I'm not too steady on a step stool at 66, but my husband is 6' with long arms...sometimes I wait to have him get something down. Or I do the jump and pull it down on my head thing :)

Regain and excess skin are not features of weight loss surgery, but features of weight loss. Are you having second thoughts about wanting to lose weight?

No Gwen, pre surgery nerves and family members making me second guess if this is the "right way". My sister in law is a nurse, and settled me down. Thank you or answering my crazed post.

Not uncommon at all to have doubts just before surgery! Especially if it's your first surgery. It'll be great - trust yourself and your decision making process.
