What a wonderful feeling!!

Hello world!!

I haven’t said this, but I don’t like scales. I rarely step on one to check my weight.

I know when I gain or loose weight when my knees and feet “tell me”, and boy they can be very loud!!!

So, as the day of my surgery approaches, I have to get some things necessary for a few days at the hospital, you know, a robe, slippers, toiletries etc.

With that in mind I went to the local mall and walked around, and walked, and walked some more.

I was feeling upbeat, happy. I thought that the cause was the music, I had my favorite radio station on in my phone and earpieces on…I was keeping  tempo with the music!!!

It was a long afternoon, I went to a lot of stores, TJMaxx, Target, Marshalls, Bed Bath and Beyond, Dress Barn and etc… some I even came inside more than once to make sure I did check every possible rack.

It took me a while to realize that I was feeling good, no pain in my joints. My knees, ankles and feet were doing their job quietly!!

That was a real fantastic moment!!!

I’m on the 9th day of the liquid diet in preparation for my surgery, and I must  have lost a good 10 pounds!!! (didn’t check), but by the way I was feeling, I’m sure of if!!!

What a wonderful feeling!!!

I haven’t been able to take a long walk without pain for about 5 years 😦

The experience  made me even more certain that I have to do whatever it takes to have a lighter, healthier and happier life!! This surgery is my big chance.

Eu nunca disse isso, mas eu nao gosto de balancas, eu raramente piso em uma para checar o meu peso.

Eu sei quando ganho ou perco peso quando os meus joelhos, tornozelos e pes me dizem, e eles gritam muito alto!!

Como o dia da minha operacao se aproxima eu tempo que comprar algumas coisas necessarias para algums dias no hospital, como um ropao, chinelos e “toiletries”.

Com isso na mente, eu fui ao shopping center local, e andei, e andei e andei um pouco  mais.

Eu estava me sentido bem, pra cima, feliz. Eu pensei que era por causa da musica, eu tinha a minha estacao de radio favorita no meu telephone e earpieces nos ouvidos, eu estava mantendo o passo com a musica!!

Foi  uma tarde longa. Eu fui ha TJMaxx, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Marshalls, Dress Bar…em algumas eu fui mais de uma vez, para ter certeza de que eu chequei todo os cabides!

Demorou um pouco para eu me dar conta de que eu estava me sentindo be, sem dor nas juntas. Meus joelhos, tornozelos e pes estavam fazendo o trabalho deles quietamente, sem reclamar!!!

Foi um momento realmente fantastic!!!

Eu estou no nono  dia da dieta liquida em preparacao para a minha cirurgia, e eu ja devo ter perdido uns 5 quilos, (nao chequei) mas do jeito que me sentia tenho quase certeza.

Que sentimento maravilhoso!!!

Eu nao tenho sido capaz de dar uma caminhada longa sem dor por mais ou menos 5 anos!!!

Esta experiencia me deixou ainda mais certa de que tenho que fazer o que for preciso para ter uma vida mais leve, saudavel e feliz!!!
