Change is on the way

Indeed, I am on the road to a big change as I have just gotten my Gastric Bypass surgery date!  I will have this ever-so-strange event come to be on August 11th.  I am eager, anxious, and oddly enough – excited.

I have to give myself a double-take when I say “I’m excited for surgery.”  How odd is that?  I think about what I’m about to do to myself in the name of health and body size and, again, a little strange. It’s a little strange because I grew up hearing about the Depression and how my parents sometimes had to just have lettuce for lunch and beans for dinner. Yet I am a grown up in a time where an extremely high percentage of Americans are Obese.  We throw away so much food everyday. Food seems unlimited to most of us. More than a little strange.  For some people this is a good thing. For those of us who became addicts when we didn’t know there was such a thing – not so good.

But, the world is what it is and we have to play the hand we are dealt – the best we can.  So that’s what I am doing.  The best I can with all that I know, with all that I have, and all that is meant to be mine.

Courage is what counts…right?  Courage. Intention. Action…then a little more courage.
