My abandoned blog:( July 30, 2008

Posted by Donna in Uncategorized.

I have neglected my blog but not entirely for lack of interest. I did after all have major abdominal surgery! That should qualify as a legitimate reason for slacking. Well sort of…

My surgery was not so horrible and I recovered rather quickly but my life became consumed with preparing for it, worrying about it, and recovering from it. I ended up making a Vlog on You Tube about this journey and that side tracked me from this blog as well. Then I dabble in MySpace and Facebook and soon I find it is more than I can handle. Pick a venue Donna! Let’s call it a hobby for now.

Another reason I didn’t discuss my surgery on here is because my mother didn’t know about it and she reads my blog. Hi Mom!! She knows now. She knew I had to have my gallbladder out and a hernia repaired but she didn’t want to know when. What she didn’t know however, was as I was having that done I also had gastric bypass surgery! That’s right, I am a fatty who has opted to take drastic measures to resolve this major issue in my life. I am one month post-op now and have no regrets! It’s the best thing I have ever done for myself. I am 29 lbs down already and loving life.

I am not concerned about people knowing what I had to do to gain control of my health. I never intended to pretend I lost the weight without help. It’s not an easy fix, trust me…it’s hard work in addition to healthy food choices and exercise but now I feel like I have control and I am on an even playing field with the rest of the world. If you have never had a weight problem I don’t expect you to understand this. Before you judge me do some research on obesity and the statistics of losing weight and keeping it off. If you still wish to judge me…go ahead…I don’t give a rats patoodie!!

Back to my abandoned blog. This also means I have neglected to keep up with some of my favs. It may take awhile for me to catch up but I will. I guess I need to designate days of the week to each of my “hobbies.” Then there is my  son’s website of which I am the webmaster. That is waaaaaay behind.

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer. I think I will make Wednesdays blog update day.

Heh. You are lucky I’ve neglected my blog too, so there wasn’t much to catch up on. 😉 You rock, Donna.

Hurray for you, Donna! I blogged 3 years ago about my gastric surgery – lap band. Best thing I could’ve done for myself, so I can understand and applaud your efforts. Good job! Want to hear more about your journey as time goes on.
