Ten Things Thursday

1. I have something big happening tomorrow, and I am not going to specify, but I need your prayers, positive vibes, good thoughts, whatever you feel like sending my way please!

2. I had my last appointment with my PA this morning prior to port revision!  18 days until they replace my port.  And I got a 1.5CC fill today.  I weighed 242.4 at the WLS office this morning.  No change really.

3.  It's official, my PA also let me know that I will absolutely need to take 3 weeks off from Bootcamp after surgery.  Super bummed about this.

4.  An old friend of mine is moving to China.  She was someone who was there for me during a rough time and we drifted apart.  I hadn't spoken to her in over a year, until she emailed me last weekend to ask if I wanted some of her stuff.  I went to her house today, she wasn't home, to pick up the things I wanted, and it made me so very sad and miss her friendship.  I tend to believe that people have a 'role' in your life, and when their role is done, they will fade away and their purpose is served.  That doesn't mean I don't miss her role in my life.

5.  I wish I could adapt that previous theory to my current feelings about Mr. Banker.  I cry every day over what I thought was going to be, but it isn't, and I need to find a way to really cope with that.

6.  One of my very best friends reminded me of some old photos this week.  I truly love her for being so supportive and reminding me where I've come from.

7.  My sister and nephew got tickets to come visit in June!  I'm so super excited!  I haven't seen them in over a year.  I hope to be very close to my goal weight by then.

8.  My birthday is a little over 2 months away and I'm getting excited already!  I've been looking at birthday dresses but won't purchase one yet since I have no idea of my size at that time.

9.  UNC v. dook basketball tonight!!!


10.  The house painting is coming along really well.  I'm almost finished painting the entire downstairs of my house.  It is really a great distraction from being alone with my thoughts.


  1. I love your blog! Since you can't do boot camp, are there other forms of exercise you're allowed to do just to keep up?

  2. When you miss someone, tell them for your sake. It is just a part of being genuine and authentic. Prayers for tomorrow.

  3. I hope Friday went well Hollee.
