Hello dear friends!
Man, and I exhausted! A very busy day at work today. I barely had the chance to sit down at all. The surgery center that I work at is so busy, but I do love busy because it makes the time go fast! I have the best job ever!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do and the people I work with! I am so blessed!
If you read my post last night, I mentioned that I am going to talk to my plastic surgeon when I see him in Sept re: a tummy tuck next year for my appendectomy scar. Well, didn't we have a lady today that was a pt & she had an abdominoplasty (fancy name for tummy tuck) done today & OMG I felt so bad for her...she was absolutely MISERABLE!!! They had her very well medicated & just couldn't seem to get the poor thing comfortable. She said she felt like she was dying & questioned whether or not she made the right decision having it done. Makes me REALLY question if I want to go through that kind of pain.....was God speaking to me through her? Not sure but I know one thing, I don't have a good pain tolerance so I very well could be just like her post op. Scares me a bit, to say the least. My best friend had a tummy tuck a few yrs ago & she said it was very painful but only lasted about a week to 10 days, then it was very much worth it. She lost over 90# having gastric bypass surgery & had it done along with a breast reduction, liposuction & body lift to the tune of $14,500! The sad part is, she gained all of her weight back & you would never know she every had all that done. Makes me sooooo sad to see her now.
Tomorrow is weigh in day at WW & I have no idea what the scale is gonna say in the am. I hope I am down at least a pound...that would be fantastic! I have had a really good week & have exercised & been very good, so hopefully, fingers crossed, I will be able to add another # down to my weight loss totals. I am so excited to hit that 40# mark. Its comin!! Hoping I will hit 178.5 by the end of August because that would be the 40# mark. Its only another 4# so I think it is an attainable goal. I definitely want to be in the 170s by the end of the month. I have to have a mini goal at all times. I need something to reach for, even if I don't meet the goal I have set, I can always set another deadline for it, but the goal always remains the same until it is reached. I had hope to have been in the 170s by July 4th but that didn't happen. I was dilly dallying so it was my fault for sure. My efforts were less than stellar so now that I have refocused, I feel a renewed sense that I can do this. Its all in between our ears! If you think you can, you can...if you think you cant, you're right. Think positive thoughts & if you don't have a goal to reach for, go and make one right now & put a deadline on it!
