The continuing Saga

Well, my friend "Ann" did not respond to my email. Which is sad for me....I was kind and told her I hoped that this would not change US.  I feel it has already, and I've not even had the surgery yet.  Ah well.  We've been through rough patches before.

I've also decided (not really) to get a tattoo on my forehead! Yup...it's going to say "I AM NOT A DUMB ASS...Weight Loss Surgery has been researched and I am fully knowledgeable on this matter" (that last part in small letters so that a person has to get REALLY close to read it...and then I can slap them).  Whew!  

You guys know how vocal I am...lol and that I do tend to speak my mind, but most of the time it's with lots of fun and laughs!  Lately I've become a bit over protective of myself.  I think it's a drop kick reaction to all the recent negative feedback I've received  from friends and family regarding my surgery.  It is becoming more regular as my surgery date gets closer.   I also am seeing that it's coming from people who have NO idea about the surgery except what they heard from a friend of a friends cousin that had it 10 years ago and it didn't work for them, or Aunt Sally's niece who decided it was Ok to eat pizza and ice cream 6 months after surgery... etc.  Hence...the new Tattoo is on order.  Maybe even a bumper sticker? Yeah..that could be good.  I could even sell them....to make enough money to buy  my NEW SKINNY clothes!!! OH  YEAH.

I totally love my friends and family...and yet, I have to put a big BUT in here (no pun intended!)....do people Really see me as stupid? Compulsive? Irrational?  Uninformed? Uneducated? because if this is the case...man have I been blind on who my real friends are.   It's like asking a fat person if she is pregnant! ha ha ha  Or asking a guy with thinning hair if he's going bald. Um...helllooooo! Can we say tacky?  Alas, I realize I've opened myself up to all the negativity because I honestly believed everyone..yes  everyone...would love me and want me to be happy...and they would support me and the decision I had made WITH MY HUSBANDS support and love. So I told all my friends and family.....Boy was I wrong.  I guess you can still learn things at 42 yrs old! ha ha ha  I guess there is still that small chance of getting haters on my blog and youtube too.  Why is being healthy again a BAD THING?  Why is wanting to horse back ride, run, play with my kids, not deal with heartburn again, tie my shoes, get out of a chair, get up off the floor with ease, and wear clothes that fit, a BAD THING? 

Oh poo poo.  I'm on that darn soap box again.  I want to spend my days laughing and loving life! AND THAT is what I'm gonna do!  July 20th can't get here soon enough!

P.S.  I love you guys.  I really do.  Just love and support me back.
