So here I am, 6 days before my wedding, and every day I am falling in love with Steve more and more. We have had our challenges during our 10- year courtship, and huge fights, and mountains to scale and canyons to cross. Oh, and raging rivers to swim... There were times when I was ready to give up, and I am sure many times he was ready to give up on me as well. But I am sure thankful we didn't give up. He brings so much to my life, and because he is part of it, it makes me not just WANT to be a better person, but actually makes me TRY to be a better person.And, there are going to be tough decisions to make for me, soon. I need to gear up my strength to be able to handle them, and choose what is best for me. I will be doing a LOT of praying for the right answers!And, since March 5th, I have lost at least 15 lbs. And, a few inches off my waist and other areas. YAY! So that is 21 days to lose 15 lbs. I haven't been super hungry during the diet, but I have had super cravings which I really hate. Tonight I am going out to dinner at El Loros, and will just eat a la carte, (enchiladas or a grande burrito, my faves!) And since my diet is officially over, I can eat carbs / grains again but I will just be careful about the sugars and refined starches... otherwise, I can have at it!! I am sure my dress will fit me just fine. I can't wait for my massage coming up. I really need it. And, my chiro appointment because I have a rib out and the pain is emanating all around my side and it hurts to breathe. And laying down (which usually makes back pain subside) doesn't make this pain go away.And, I have to make a decision by Monday on whether or not to cancel my follow up appointment with my surgeon, just checking in to see how my arms/shoulders are doing. I have been in pain, but also have only been doing the bare minimum of physical therapy and stretches, so it kinda serves me right. She will most likely tell me to go see my physical therapist again, and each appointment will cost me $100. Oh well. We will see.
