So, as of yesterday, I was 30 days post-op. Thirty days ago, a hot surgeon opened me up, and CHANGED MY LIFE.
At this point, I am 27 lbs lighter since June 20th, 2011. I last weighed in on 7/13. I plan to weigh again tomorrow and see where we are at! It is so crazy…I eat an egg, and feel full beyond belief. I drink a protein shake, and it takes me about two hours to finish it! I am beyond grateful for all of the supportive people who have stuck by me this whole time, and cannot even begin to imagine what I would do without the encouragement and support. It’s truly amazing how many people will think to check on you when you take on something like this. You learn who really cares about you, and who really celebrates your achievements WITH you.
I have a best friend that MAKES MY DAY. She drove me to and from surgery, and had a mini meltdown when the nurses rolled me to my room after surgery (as you can very well imagine, I was a HOT mess, apparently groaning about my shoulder pain!), and honestly, that’s just the beginning of the list. We have a fabulous new condo together, and now that she no longer lives in Bakersfield, things are FINALLY back to normal. We just celebrated the past weekend with a day at the Del Mar Throughbred Club Horse Races (thanks, Corky!), and then spent Sunday with her boyfriends wonderful family at Glen Ivy Spa in Corona. Nothing like being painted in green goop with your bestie to get the bonding going! Lol. It’s so nice to have her here again. I feel better when I go home, and I look forward to everything we do, because we always MAKE it fun….regardless! Give us some gossip mags and beach towels, and we will make it happen! 🙂 You can see just a glimpse of how we get down, complete with our oh so glam “My Fair Lady” style hats at the races this past weekend below(I snuck one of Lidia in there too! That girl is quite the anchor in the 5 years I have known her!):
As far as StupidHead is concerned….
Ahh….sometimes I just wish I could write him a REALLY long letter, and be able to vocalize everything that I think to tell him throughout the day. It’s kind of annoying, really. I realized that he is one of the males in my life who can actually GET UNDER my skin, and I freaked out a bit. It’s not really my style to stress over a dude. It’s not my style to give a rip about whether or not they are upset with me, or I hurt their feelings. The lines of this friendship have just become so beyond blurred. And I am just as guilty as he is. I could say no….I could ignore the calls….but I never do. I decided last night that I was going to address the fact that we’ve overstepped the appropriate friendship boundaries after a small tiff last night, and then BOOM! He goes and starts on about all the things he likes about me. It was straight out of a chick flick….”I like that thing you do with your nose, that face you make when I annoy you? And I love it when you’re angry, and then you just vent and go right back to being all sunshine and rainbows. I hear songs when I’m in the car, and just picture you smiling and singing along….”
WTF? The worst part? I remember pretty much every word he said. Which only means that we are really screwed here. So I need to start lining ’em back up again! I need to find someone that I really want to invest my time in. Maybe someone I’d actually consider fighting for. Someone I would go out of my way to express my feelings for, in the hopes that I could keep them.
OR! Maybe I can just act a straight fool for a little while! 🙂 Gotta make sure I can keep up with all these guys….settling down in the midst of so many changes and achievements could be a little foolish, after all! Time will tell.
In the meantime, I’m gonna keep stalking the Victoria’s Secret website, and adding swimsuits to my shopping cart in preperation for my Sports Illustrated cover! A woman’s work is never done!
I’m thinking that this could be it, seeing as it’s my color and all. 😉
The Liya Push Up Halter Top suit from the “Beach Sexy” line at VictoriasSecret.com. I’ll take HECK YES for $500, Alex!
Love and Lipgloss!
