Skin

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

I posted this today on Facebook....the video is amazing for so many reasons. I also included my original comments about the video below....please note...the comments are not directed at anyone in particular and I have not been picked on for posting....the video just flashed me back to comments I have overheard from people throughout my life.

"I posted this last night right before I went to bed and didn't comment on it....I needed a bit of time to gather my thoughts on it.
First of all...while he is clearly uncomfortable...he is also happy with himself and proud of his accomplishment. Deservedly so, I might add.
I would also like to point out for those who may not look past the skin....he has a six pack abs, gorgeous pecks, and beautiful biceps. He also has giant muscles in his thighs.
Foe those who cannot look past what is on the outside....you are missing the beauty that is within. Not only his muscles, but speaking as someone who is has about the same total amount to lose and only halfway to goal....you are missing the beauty, strength, resolve, and courage that is on the inside.
As an overweight person...I don't need you to beat me down, your judgement, nor your opinion about my body. You have no idea what I have overcome or what I conquer every single day of my life.
As a person, however, I do appreciate your effort to understand and accept me on my journey as I accept you and yours."

    I think he is lovely. My best friend posted this to her facebook too. My BF lost a large amount of weight very quickly (bad divorce poor thing) and now her tummy is rather loose like that, not as extreme as his but noticeable. I think she is beautiful and am proud to go prance around the beach with her in a bikini. Sometimes people give looks, but we just glare at them with that look that says "Yeah keep staring. I DARE you to say something!" She is my best friend because she is kind, loyal, encouraging and never judges anyone the way she is constantly judged.

Your comments show off how gorgeous your insides are!

Updates...mostly medical :/

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Hi peoples....
As usual I have been slacking off on what I should be doing because life seems to get in the way. I am trying though and I am patting myself on the back, because sometimes....you just GOTTA!

My mom has been in and out of the hospital a few more times...they said the last wasn't a seizure but she is acting the same way when she did have one.
They said she was having mini strokes and have her on a daily aspirin and anti seizure medication. Also, they did an EKG and found damage to her heart from some previously undiagnosed minor heart attacks and found that the artery in her neck is blocked and she will need surgery.
I HATE being so far away with no transportation!

Here at home, I found out Monday the results from my ultrasound...I have a cyst on my ovary and my doctor referred me to a surgeon and said that due to the size (4.3 cm...golf ball size) they will probably take out the ovary as well.
I decided yesterday morning that it is big enough that it needs a name....since it is going after my ovary, it must be a boy and has since been dubbed Ant'ny...and everything is his fault!
I'm sore because of Ant'ny....I am crabby because of Ant'ny...Ant'ny made me stub a toe today and caused that hangnail....
I did manage to go to the gym yesterday and made 2.5 miles on the treadmill, although my speed has slowed down a lot, I am down to about 23 min/mile....kinda sucky, but I still felt good for doing it.
I will be on and off as I can, I have a billion emails to get through, but just wanted to tell everyone to hang in there!

    I missed an email about your posts and when it does that it unsubs me to spark blogs so SORRY I missed some of your blogs.
Ack, Anthony the troublemaker. But guess it is good they found it.

Sounds stressful with all going on.

Update

Friday, October 24, 2014

Ok, I can't get my video to upload, so I will just have to type it out!

I have been super busy but my work offered us a deal for a local gym, 35 bucks a month and no contract and no sign up fees. I have also been a bit worried as to what I should do with myself with winter coming and I won't be able to get out on my bike.

I got a free hour with a personal trainer on Wednesday, it turned into a half hour because I was late but we talked and went through a few exercises that will help me.

I am super excited and can't wait to get started...it will have to be next week since this week is all but over and I work today and my nephew's birthday par-tay is tomorrow.

They have a pool and even jacuzzi and sauna, and the best thing is that it is on the bus route on the way to my work so transportation isn't too much of an issue.

  Be careful...Heat and pulsating water can raise heart rate and this can cause your blood sugar to lower.

I am pretty sure I have lost my ever loving mind.

I know I haven't been around but will update (most likely with a video) tomorrow (Wednesday)

Take care and love yourself,
Moi
