Three weeks and two days ago I announced my decision to have weight loss surgery — it was also the day i had surgery. It’s been a wild ride over these last three weeks. I’ve learned how to live on a liquid diet — which is a lot easier when you only have a quarter of your stomach left.
Thank goodness I am through with the drinking all my meals stage. There comes a point where a girl just needs to chew.
I’m learning how to eat slower, eat smaller portions and eat healthy. It’s a process.
but then isn’t everything a process. You don’t just wake up with the full knowledge of how to do something….well other than breathing, I think that one is built in.
Sometimes the easiest things are a process for me….like being nice. Some days I have to breathe in and out several times and then chomp down on my tongue before I can be nice. I’m learning that process through this process. People feel entitled or maybe empowered to ask some personal questions about my reasons gorgeous surgery. I am a bit stunned at the audacity, but I try to be nice and put them in their place all at the same time. It’s a tricky two step.
But then I remember people are curious beings and they can ask, but I don’t have to answer. I’m navigating this new normal and trusting God’s hand and direction in my life. We are all different. We all have a different path to follow. My way will not be your way. God has a unique plan for each of us.
Embrace the plan God has for you!!
