The first month of 2009 is almost over.  When I look back and reflect on this past year, I wanted to take the time to recognize the blessings that have happened to me this past year.   Some blessings were not so good but most were the greatest ever.

--After 17 years of living with my best friend, we decided to tie the knot.
--Being introduced as "stepmom".
--Having my daughter disappear from my life and more than likely to "drugs".
--Gaining a granddaughter as a daughter.  I am in the process of adopting her.
--Had plastic surgery, and got to my goal weight of 160.   I am enjoying the fact that I can now belt my pants or wear hipster belts over tops and dresses.
--dealt with the death of three dear friends.
--finally enjoy shopping for myself and being able to wear tops with no sleeves, even though my scars still show.
--met lots of great people who have had WLS and are becoming great friends.
--weighing less than I can ever remember weighing in my life and going from a size 28W to an 8-10.  I wore a size 10 6 1/2; 48DD a 36DD; size 10W a 9 1/2 medium; size 14 a size 6; 
--Loving comments like:  Nana, you are so much more fun now that you have lost weight or I didn't recognize you!!!!!

This is truly a wonderous adventure for me.  I still have a hard time learning to try new styles of clothing on, or not going for the dark colors when shopping for clothing.  I have to remind myself that I can walk farther and I don't have to park so close to the building anymore.  I still struggle with occassional snacking and have to remind myself that I must take my vitamins, eat slower and chew, chew, chew the food.

WLS is NOT the easy way out!!!!!!!
