Whinge Alert!

Just a quick post to have a little whinge...

I must admit, I do like the occasional opinionated person, how can I not? I am one! but it really really erks me when I let one person in particular get beneath my skin. This person has so many 'mis-guided' opinions and they are stopping me from doing what I want and saying how I feel..

Argh! I'm so frustrated with myself. I am not normally the type to let these things erk me but this person seems to influence others perceptions and that really frustrates me.

Note to self: Do not let this person get under your skin, you are better than that and they are no better than you!

Hmmm, I think I need a good affirmation to say internally for these situations, any suggestions???

I can't believe I just did that!

OMG! I can't believe I have done it. I have posted a couple of pics of me (I have finally figured out how to add images and new pages...) I was thinking about uploading them, or at least putting up pics of the scenery or something, anything really - I love blogs with pics, but I really thought I should wait until I've lost some weight first you know just so I can say that's not me now. Now I can't separate me from the pictures will I be able to even when I lose this weight? Who knows? To be honest I am probably heavier now than what I was in the photos :( I will have to do up some real before pics, you know the side, front and back ones... yes that's what I'm going to do. I think I need a drink first!! lol

BOOBS envy!!

I am loving all of the post BOOBS posts! You all seem to have had such an amazing time. The photos have all been wonderful too - You ladies look fantastic!

Locally here in Australia I have been to a couple of 'bandster' lunches in various locations and I imagine Chicago was a little something like that times about .. hmmm a MILLION!!! It makes me wish I had started this process so much sooner so that I could have saved my $$ and possibly been apart of all the fun :( oh well, I did read that BOOBS may be coming Down Under so you never know!!!

Well it is now officially less than 7 weeks until I have my surgery. Where I am located I don't need to go on any liquid shake diet prior to surgery (I'm not sure if that's good or bad) is this normal?

I will be having my pre-op check done in 5 weeks, OMG that seem so close now! I am hoping to do it over the phone to save me the 2 hour drive but if I have to travel thats ok too.

Other than that I haven't really got much to report.

Testing, testing...

I've been experimenting with a new signature...

Let's see if it works...

OMG I have followers!!!!

Well firstly let me just say ... OMG!! I HAVE FOLLOWERS!!!!! WOW that is awesome... I am stunned.

OK now that's off my chest I must thank MISS VICKIE for the shout out and letting you all know I exist - Thank you! I'm a little scared now knowing that there are real people out there (such as yourselves!) reading this babble of words that swirl around in my head (*insert panic mode*) but I must say that I am also super excited too!

I having been reading nearly everyone's blog for a little while now and felt that it was time to participate, become involved, accountable, and so on. I also want to let you all know that I think that each and everyone of you are inspiring to me.

I have had to wait about 12 months for my insurance to kick in, and during these past months I have had way too much time to think. Whenever I got myself into that place where you question everything and start back tracking decisions I always used to log on and read what you guys have been up to and what you are achieving and it reinforces that yes everything is going to be ok. I am doing the right thing for me, everything will be fine, stop worrying.

I would like to finish this post by saying a big thankyou to everyone, for sharing their experience and allowing someone like me to be able to 'be involved', be inspired and be motivated by you.

8 weeks til surgery!

Is it just me? But ... Wow the time seems to be flying! Not long now and it will be the day before. So much is happening in my life right now. I just hope that I have enough time to prepare myself for this new and exciting and scary and and and ... change in my life. I have been reflecting on a lot of things in my life lately mainly work, but sometimes the personal stuff does creep in there.

Anyway the main thing I have been thinking about is 'Am I really ready?' Don't get me wrong I have waited 12 months now and have been contantly thinking about what things are going to potentially be like etc, but am I REALLY ready to make those changes? Am I willing to eat a piece of fruit instead of a biscuit..Am I ready to get up off the couch and go for a walk...

The truth is I HAVE to be. I owe it to myself, I owe it to my family, hell I even owe it to my dog Daisy! I keep having to remind myself that I do deserve this. I do deserve the opportunity to get healthy. I NEED to be a little selfish so that I can be a better wife, a better mother, a better friend.

I was looking in my wardrobe the other day and there are sooooo many clothes, in so many differnt sizes. I need to do something about this. It is so frustrating when you go to get dressed and you have a wardrobe full of clothes you either can't fit into or they do fit but you don't feel comfortable when wearing them. To be honest alot of my clothes are just not .. ME! I have either bought them because they fit or because I was having a 'good' day and thought they looked good when I tried them on at the store! How many times have we thought this!!! ;)

On a positive note I am meeting with a group of local 'bandsters' this weekend and am really looking forward to it.

Until next time!
