Wow! I am less than a week away from surgery (Dec. 14).  It was been so busy at work and home.  Trying to get Christmas and my daughter's graduation together before I go into the hospital, whew!  It is keeping me busy, which is a good thing so I don't get nervous about the surgery.

I think my biggest concern right now is the pain immediately after surgery.  I've had 5 surgeries already, so I think my pain level is pretty high. 

I have been heavy what seems all my life.  I remember elementary, middle and high school, I was not the heaviest kid, but definately not the smallest.  Now I look back and wish that I could be that size now. 

I have always been the healthy fat person.  I don't have diabetes, high cholesterol or sleep apnea.  But my BMI, wow. I am 46 years old and  am married and have a wonderful husband who was never concerened with my weight, I am also a mother of 3 daughters and 1 grandaughter so I want to be able to do things and be around for them and many more grandkids.

I think the biggest thing I am looking forward to is not shopping at the plus size stores, I haven't done that in over 20 years, how cute I'm going to be. 

I stated writing in a journal yesterday.  I want to remember this incredible journey that I am beginning.  So excited for the rest of my life to start.  Yea!

Take care all,
