No it's not that anniversary. Today holds a very special place in my heart, because it's my favorite little person in the world's birthday and it is the one year anniversary of me taking the first of 6 steps on the journey to my surgery. So it's time for a little reflection.
In one year, I've lost almost 100lbs, can go up and downstairs without being out of breath(the pain in my knees will always be there, thanks arthritis), can tie my shoes while bending over, can walk without my thighs rubbing, can grab my hands from my back, can sit in one seat on the bus, and touch my toes. I've also joined my first exercise class, dumped the unsupportive boyfriend, become more confident in myself, and stop saying when I lose the weight I'm going to do"insert action". I've changed jobs, gained new friends, and am renewing friendships that are really worth while!
So I'm going to enjoy this moment over a Skinny Decaf Vanilla Latte and say prayers for all my sisters and brothers who keep dreaming of their surgery days and hope that their journey of a thousand miles are as good as mine.
