Turkey Day & Black Friday

Nov 27, 2009

I made it through Thanksgiving fairly well.  My last visit with the NUT, I was told to eat when I was at a 4 (on a scale of 1-10) and to stop when I got to a 7.  I may have gone to an 8 BUT I maintained that I was much more aware of my eatting - in comparison to other years.  I continue to assess (in my head-NOT out loud) how  my family functions revolve around food.  Last night I kept thinking that THIS IS IT!  My life WILL be so very very different next Thanksgiving.
On top of that, I did my annual Black Friday shopping trip today.  I was standing outside a store, waiting for it to open for an hour.  It was cold so everything seemed a bit more miserable - but again, I found myself going back to the fact that next Black Friday my knees won't ache, my back won't hurt and I will feel so much better about myself!
I can't wait until Monday.  I see the surgeon and will hopefully get a surgery date!
