Have You Ever Asked Yourself?

I have had a rough couple of weeks. Three surgeries last week, a few hundred stitches and enough pain to eat 30 Vicodin in 1 sitting, I am trying to get my sea legs back.

Yesterday brought some more bad news on the cancer front.

Today I am just living my life. I am finding things to be happy about, planning future enjoyable events - hell, I am saving the max for my retirement and spending the rest.

Today I am going to try to make myself smile a little and enjoy weight loss at the same time.

- Can you fit into the same earrings you wore in high school?
- Is it all about diet, or am I predisposed to looking heavy?
- If I apply the cream, do I still have to run 10 miles a day to get it to work?
- Are your fitness goals to get down the to the weight you lied about on your driver's license?
- Would a pet head-cone help with portion control?
- If I hide the candy, will I find it?
- Is food retention a problem?
- Does being round count as being in shape?
- Does putting a crouton on you ice cream sundae instead of a cherry, make it a salad?
- If you lose count at 5000 calories, do you get to start over?
- If weight loss was like virginity, does that mean I'd never gain it back?
- If you were 10 feet tall, would the weight you are at be OK?
- Is your favorite exercise chewing?
- Am I good at exercising failure?
- Pizza is not a vegetable, wait, what?

OK - just some things which made me smile.

Glad you can smile. I think I heard 5 or 6 of these this week when folks were giving me a hard time about working out at 5:30 AM. Made me shake my head and smile, okay smirk and shake my head...

Take care and find joy in the little things.

This one is hysterical and partly true for me:
Are your fitness goals to get down the to the weight you lied about on your driver's license?

That's my problem; I'm not overweight, I'm undertall.

Pizza is not a vegetable, wait, what?
But Congress declared it a vegetable, and what they say goes!

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a rough couple of weeks and received bad news regarding your health. You've been a big source of inspiration for me on MFP because you have overcame so much and remain strong and positive despite everything. Much Love, Boston Strong!

Wow, thanks for sharing! I've been depressed because I sprained my ankle, and here you are joking after cancer surgery. You rock!
PS - My daughter had cancer surgery and treatments eight months ago, and she is nearly back on track. Bless you and best wishes to you.
