They change, they stay the same.

It is my first day back.

Stop.  Remember Mr. Watkins told you never to use "it is" in your writing.  Ever.  He also told you never to use the word "you".  Shit.  He also told you never to respect some one who cursed.  *sigh*  Wonder what he would think of emoticons and the unnecessary use of elipses...

After my two-week medical leave, I am officially back at work and currently on my lunch break enjoying a delicious grape soda and some chicken noodle soup with oyster crackers.  I am still amazed at how very different I feel.  I had no idea, really, what an impact my large breasts made on me until now.  Everyone at work keeps commenting on how happy I look and how I'm already standing up straighter which only makes me happier and standier-uppier. 

Yesterday, I had a doctor's appointment for a post-op check up and to be released back to work.  Aside from him not admitting that I have teeny tiny bewbs now (people tell me they're probably a D now... a D!!) it went very well and things are looking great. 

I heard myself say to the doctor, "When can I start to excercise?  I want to run!" 

People who know me will know how out-of-character that is.  But I do.  I'm ready to change my life.  Who would have thought that taking 5lbs of milk ducts and fatty tissue off my chest would have that effect?  Not me, that's for sure. 

A friend of mine, Jen, who is absolutely amazing and wonderful and has a beautifully written blog has recorded her amazing transformation over the past few years and I would like to do something like that, but there is no way in Hell that I am going to post my weight every week.  Instead, I will take my picture every week and show you how wonderful and happy and healthy I am becoming. 

People who know me will know how not-out-of-character it is of me to forget my phone at home.  I did that today, so I can't take a picture of myself right now.  Instead, here is a drawing:

Okay, just kidding.  It won't upload right now.  But it will.  And I'm still posting this right now because I am committed to making a change!  Right now!

That's not a bad omen... is it?  (Damn, I did it again!)

**Edit.  Here's my picture:

  1. Great post, Debbie! It is amazing how change occurs - sometimes we don't even realize what has been weighing us down (literally or figuratively) until it removed! Good for you, and if there is any way I can support you or help in your process, just let me know! And thanks for the link to my blog :)

  2. Thanks, Jen! That's a huge compliment from you. As long as I've known you, you have been some one I have looked up to and wanted to be like. Wow... how cheesy am I today?
