My dream is to run a 5K.
I've never been a runner...well, not since I was like in 6th grade, but I am determined to run the Turket Trot next Thanksgiving. I may look like a turkey waddling along, but I will do it! let me tell you why...
My weight has been an issue my entire life - not just an issue, but a struggle. I went on my first diet in 4th grade...and I've been on the yo-yo ever since. That's about to change. In October of 2008, I decided to look into having gastric bypass surgery. It's been quite a bumpy ride with insurance, on December 10, my life will change with this surgery. I have some health issues that are weight related and it is my prayer that I will not only survive the surgery, but thrive in the new life it will offer. Over the next year, I anticipate losing about 90 pounds. During this time, I am also planning on beginning - and really sticking to - an exercise plan. I am going to totally turn my life around and work to live a healthier life!
Is there a reason, I am so determined to make this dream a reality? Yep...and it's related to another dream... the dream of becoming a momma! I am in the process of adopting a baby girl from China...I've been working on this dream for about 4 years...and praying it comes true very soon! Oh...and the surgery will come in so handy with having to travel to China...I won't need to eat as much of the questionable food and I will fit in the airplane seat! BONUS!
