As I was walking around the Erie Zoo yesterday on my daily walk, I was thinking, wow this process actually went quicker than I thought. It seems just yesterday I was calling my doctor and asking for a referral to the surgeons office. My friend Emily was so excited for me that she even bought me a book to read on the subject just days after my decision. And now I am only 3 weeks away from the reality of it.
21 days. I wonder if the animals at the zoo that have come to recognize me, we know who I am when I have lost all my weight. I hope so, I have come very used to the llama and swans coming to greet me. And I love that the giraffe sticks his tongue out at me everytime I stop to say hi. Even a couple of the big cats know who I am. Yes I spend that much time at the zoo. Memberships are wonderful for that.
I have started to think about how much I will change and the entire new closet I will have to buy. That will be fun. As you can tell I am excited.
Testing tomorrow, I will let you know how that goes.
