I am feeling good today...some days that's quite a chore...but today is good. The weather has improved my mood greatly. It is so nice to be able to step outside and go for a walk in the fresh air and sunshine. I walked for 30 minutes today and it felt good. The bottoms of my soles hurt a bit. I am thinking maybe a new pair of shoes might help. Perhaps that could be my 50 pound reward. We'll see.
I have been reading a few other blogs lately and really thinking about what an effort it takes to change who you are. I know that wearing this fat suit for a good portion of my youth and all of my adult years so far has had a negative impact on me...more than I care to admit sometimes. I don't think I could ever have guessed the amount of head work I would have to do along with the body work. Surgery is such a small piece of the puzzle. I think only my fellow lap banders can understand that.
