Good morning friends! Hope you enjoyed my “one off” yesterday as I put on my sports writer hat. Going into the new year you will probably see a little more of that type of thing as I try to become a better overall writer. My mission is still the same, to remove the veil of deception from the minds and hearts of others, but what I have found is that can be done in many different ways. In any case, thank you for your support and the awesome comments that I have received.
So other day I totally missed that I passed my eight week mark since my hip replacement surgery. It has been a heck of a journey and while there have been hiccups along the way I do not regret in anyway getting it done. The pain I am in now is nothing compared to what it was before the surgery. There are some after effects to this no doubt, but I have been assured that they will soon go away and all will be great. In fact, in just 3 weeks I will be going back to work to once again annoy the heck out of my co-workers.
I go back to work on January 2 and along with that comes Phase 2 of my transformation. As most of you know I am a heavy man. At one point I was all the way up to 400 pounds. Obesity runs in my family so its always been a struggle but 400 pounds? Ouch! Since that point I have lost some weight; the last time I was at the doctor I chimed in at 368 so I am on the right path. Now, with my titanium hip in place, the pounds HAVE to come off; I simply have no choice if I want this hip to last the full 30 years that it needs to. I will probably go back to a version of the low-carb diet I was on before but Phase 2 WILL be a success. In fact, I have short term goal of walking a 2k in the spring to fully test this hip and get things going.
So, that is where I am at after eight weeks. Thank you all again for your prayers and support as get ever closer to the full transformation that I know I have to have. Remember, SMILE and LAUGH!!!
Peace and Grace,
