Once upon a time ... not too awfully long ago ... there was a Stampin' Up! facilitator (wonder who that was?) who decided that every Wednesday we would wear our wigs for the day and call it Wiggy Wednesday. I was sooo excited for Wednesday to roll around. I grew up with many different colored wigs, hair length syles, falls, and wiglets, and love wigs! Wednesday rolled around and I chose to wear my new red wig. I looked stylin' and I felt great! I got to work and I was the ONLY one wearing a wig! How's that for team support? Well, I had to wear it for the rest of the day because my hair underneath the wig wasn't fit for human viewing. My daughter was horrified and embarrased that her mother had worn her wig to work! Others within the company thought that I looked great. And I had a fun day fooling everyone with my new 'do'.
Today's been a good day! And no, I didn't wear my wig. I had a luncheon to take care of for a family in the neighborhood whose mother's funeral was today. We actually buried her husband just 50 days ago. That's neat when an older couple can go to the other side so close together. We had so many ladies in the neighborhood who brought wonderful food for the luncheon. Everything turned out beautiful. It's a good feeling when you serve others.
Some of you have asked if I have plans on going to convention as a demonstrator. I thought about it, but in all honesty I just didn't feel like that was the place for me to be right now. What I mean is, I don't want to take anything away from the classroom experience or from the facilitator that may be on stage. I wouldn't want a big fuss made over me if I showed up at the event. I think that would be in poor taste. Some have asked if they can meet me some where. I haven't made any plans for that either. But, I wouldn't mind hearing what everyone is doing on their free night. Who knows ... perhaps I may just show up there. :)
I wanted to share with you what a one ounce portion of food looks like. Here's two one ounce portions. This was my lunch. Peanut butter in one and yogurt in the other. It was delicious! I just introduced peanut butter into my diet yesterday. Great source of protein. I put a child's spoon next to the cups so you can see the comparison. Not much food but when you take itty, bitty bites and chew and chew, it feels like a gormet meal.
Went to my first support weight loss group meeting tonight. Not sure how I felt about it. There were some long-timers there who kept asking questions and didn't give the newbies a chance to get their questions answered. I really wanted a networking meeting tonight and the chance to talk to other patients. One of the surgeons was there answering questions but the problem was there were people there who were considering the surgery, so they had a lot of questions too. Perhaps next month's meeting will be more geared to what I was expecting.
I think the best support that I'm getting right now, is YOU! I've had several of you share your weight loss stories and surgeries and it has inspired and motivated me to keep on this plan. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I look forward to your posts and thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Happy Thursday tomorrow~!
