Sorry it’s been a few days since posting. Tuesday night was the chat and last night I was at a support group event. The support chat went great again. You can save the dates for the next three: August 28, September 11, and September 25. Those are all Tuesday and it will be at 8pm EST again, but people are welcome to stop in anytime, we have been going at least until 9pm if not a little after. The room is at http://bariatric.oli.us/. I have also been busy selling a lot of clothes, that are too big for me now or that I don’t wear anymore, online. I have also bought a couple of cute things including my Halloween costume! I have been selling on a Facebook group called FatToo. I have had nothing but good experiences with it and there are no listing fees like on Ebay. If you are looking to get rid of Size 20+ women’s clothing, request to join the group and start selling. There is also an off shot to sell shoes, jewelry, lingerie, and purses.
Last night, I went to a support group for long-term weight loss surgery patients at a local winery, everyone there is excited for me to have my bypass done. This Wednesday I have an abdominal ultrasound, upper GI swallow, blood work, and nutritional assessment. Friday is my 2nd of 3 visits for the medically supervised weight loss as well as a counseling appointment. Busy week medically! I also have all day trainings for work on Monday and Tuesday, then school goes back on the 29th and I am back to work for good. I worked a little bit the past few weeks covering summer school. I am excited to see my new clinic and get it set up on Friday.
Tomorrow morning, my husband, my father, and I are doing our next 5K. This one is the race at the cemetery in Cleveland. It should be an interesting one. Here is a small artice aboutit: http://clevelandheights.patch.com/articles/lake-view-cemetery-to-host-first-annual-5k. Well Patrick and I will be heading to bed early tonight and taking it easy all day tomorrow. I can’t believe this is my second 5K this year. Most people my size can barely walk. Exactly three months ago tomorrow was my first 5K. Weird that they both fell on the 19th!
