My mom lives in the woods.
No really, I mean the woods, like Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs woods.
Nothing spells relaxing than the sound of nothing but trees and birds.
Her house is nicely tucked away and behind her house is a clearing with trees and plenty of woodland animals to make you feel like you steped into the story of Red Ridinghood. It's relaxing, calm and the perfect start to my liquid diet. I was totally apprehensive of coming here to start this. I have recently quit smoking, my monthly friend should be here by tomorrow and I just had to say good bye to my soul mate (food). I had wanted to curl into a ball, put some Netflix on with my headphones and not leave the bed all weekend. I'm glad I have family who pushes me. My mom played guilt trip until I agreed to come and I am grateful for every minute of it. I can go out on her deck and listen to the trees, or I can curl up on her couch with her and watch some QVC (hey, don't judge us), or I can sit at her kitchen table with an awesome view of everything that is calm. Not to mention I made sure I packed my xanex for the tough moments. Plus this isn't really good bye to food. Since I chose the DS it's more like "I'll see you later good friend" My diet post surgery won't be restrictive like some of the other weight loss surgeries. I'll be able to eat all I love again, it's just a matter of time.
This is the perfect ending to a near perfect week.
