Guilt

No excuses but really…lupus and its symptoms hurt more than my body. There is so much that I want to do but physically sometimes just can’t.

I get into this terrible cycle of not calling because I don’t want to bother people…and then think it was just last week that I spoke with them.  Terrible because months will go by that I haven’t spoken with them.

What do you feel guilt over?  What do you do to overcome it?

I need to remember that those that love me understand.  Some days are better than others in this belief.

Blessings.

Rockstar

Ya, I am struggling. To stay positive, to be encouraging, to be who I want to be.

Life happens. I want to snack, have wine, not exercise-stuff, that isn’t positive or encouraging. But reality.

I struggle. Struggle with the day to day, routine crap that can tie you down and sink you in a second.

So, in bed by 9pm and taking all I can to get me through the day.

Today is new. Beginning again. Every day is a new day.

Blessings.

Ten Year Challenge

Ya, so I got caught up in this…

First profile picture:

And then December 2018:

I posted that it is a ten year difference, and 115 pounds!!

So incredibly proud of my ten years. I really am in love with my wrinkles. Really!

What do you love about the last ten years? But really? I am so grateful for my weight loss surgery and the gifts it has given me.

I haven’t been well the past couple of days…but I can guarantee that if I didn’t have gastric sleeve I would be much worse now.

I am so thankful for so many things…but especially my surgery.

Blessings.
