Great Expectations...

Jul 28, 2009

So I have not written in my blog in a while. I have somewhat been avoiding it and also since I have returned to work I have just been really busy. I am almost six weeks post op...time has flown by. How do I feel right now? I guess I am indifferent. I guess I am indifferent because my reality has not matched the fantasy that I had regarding the surgery. I guess somehow I felt once I had the surgery all of my weight would magically fall off overnight. Of course I have to be realistic that that would not happen but still seeing the success of others one cannot help but to get...great expectations.

I do not want to turn into one of those persons who become obsessed with the scale and measuring inches, etc. At the end of the day, I know it will come off and I will lose the weight but again having great expectations set up to look at every little thing and get frustrated when you do not lose a pound after the pounds have been falling off after four weeks. Or even if you can eat five more teaspoons of something one day than you can eat it the other day...

Great expectations...can lead to mental fallacies if you are not too careful. I am not playing the game...I am just enjoying the ride to this new life and journey that I am on. Knowing that by the time my trip to the Winter Olympics get's on.
