HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

Today is my birthday - 47 years young.

Like most of us I don't feel 47, I still feel (in my head) like I'm in my 20's even though the body wouldn't agree with me, it's saying more 67 (at the moment)

I'm feeling optimistic though, the more I research and read abut my upcoming lapband surgery, the more I feel it is the right thing to do for me. I even considered today ringing the Dr and asking him if he could do me earlier as 12 weeks seems a long time.

The photo below was taken before one of my birthday parties, I don't know how old I was, but I look loved don't you think. The dress I remember my mother knitting for me and the beautifully coiffed hair my mother always took pains to do, she always said "if your hair looks good you look good", which is somthing that carried with me into adulthood.

Even my beautiful dog Prince is looking at me with adoration, what a dog he was,such a beautiful nature,I used to ride him around the backyard like a horse, he was so big, a Great Dane/German Shepherd Cross.

The rolling hills in the background were part of a dairy farm, bought out many years later by the government which became the course for the Equestrian event in the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

Happy Birthday Kerry! And what a gorgeous photo :)

I know what you mean about being sick of waiting, my appointments not for another 8 weeks, let alone surgery! I am just so over being obese and sick and miserable, I want to move forward NOW! LOL We shall just both have to be patient... *sigh*

Happy birthday!! [[Hugs]] :o)

Don't you have to wait 12 because you have to lose weight before the surgey? Sounds like it defeats the purpose lol

Happy (belated) Birthday! Hope you had a great day - love the photo!

What did the doctor say about doing the procedure earlier - any chance? I'd be impatient too if i'd made my mind up about something and then got told I had to wait 12 weeks ... lol
