Why I keep on trucking...
Wednesday, February 04, 2015
I had no idea how much pain I would be in the majority of the time as my body shifts and changes after weight loss surgery.
That being said I want to take a moment to dream and think about why I did this surgery. What motivates me to keep going. What I can look forward to in my new healthy body:
I want to go to Six Flags. I have never been to the amusement park and since gaining weight I haven't even tried as I knew there was no way I would fit in any of the rides.
I look forward to having energy. My goal in life is to start and run a sanctuary for animals with a strong focus on the senior animals. My dream is to build a large hotel type building so that not only can I help animals, but I can help people. It would allow me to bring in the homeless, or veterans, or even convicts that may not have any other choices for a roof over their head and gainful employment. This endeavor will definitely require me to have energy.
I look forward to horseback riding, biking, hiking, cruises, flying, and all the other things that my weight held me back from. I want to fly to Hawaii to celebrate my 10th anniversary with my hubby next year. I want to be comfortable in my body. I want to add years to my life and reduce the amount of medicines that I am on. There are so many great things heading my way, all I have to do is keep on trucking.
I am so thankful to the Lord at how smooth it went getting approved for the surgery and that I even had the opportunity.
