Weekend Recap

Good Monday morning to you!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was crazy busy, but was great!

Friday night I met my fellow Jazzercise Divas for dinner.  I told them all about my upcoming excitement with probably a whole lot of TMI.  That's how I roll...  It is great to spend time together outside of Jazzercise and we have been getting together like this for years. 

Saturday morning, it was nice to sleep in a little until it was time to meet Debi.  We went and got mani/pedis together which has become our little ritual.  We get to spend good quality time catching up and I love it.  I know I say it a lot, but I just love her so much and to think we would have never known each other if it weren't for our shared band experiences.  Isn't that nuts?

After that, I ran home and ate a super late lunch.  Then BFF & I went to Gay Bingo!  How fun is that?  Basically, it is regular bingo, but it is run by drag queens and it is so much fan and laughter.  It was slightly a bummer because we were in the overflow room so we didn't get to see all the fun as easily, but it was still a very good time.

Sunday, after church, I met up with Lizard to go see a play that our boss's son was in.  It was a short little play and the 3 actors did such a great job!  I was excited to see another familiar face.  One of the guys that often acts in the plays put on by the theater I have season tickets for apparently runs the little school.  He is hilarious and it was fun to see him in another venue.  I love theater!!

I'm a little annoyed with myself because with all this planning and new excitement for my upcoming surgery, I have let myself shift focus from my commitment for my Olympic goal.  I hate when I let myself do that because there really is no reason.  I just use any excuse to not focus on healthy eating.  It is beyond ridiculous and I know that I will struggle with that forever.  I have been gaining and losing the same 8 pounds for over a year now.  Poo poo, Beth Ann. 

You know something that has surprised me?  I have gotten little-to-no raised eyebrows about my upcoming surgery.  If people are judging it, they certainly aren't giving me no indication of it.  Don't get me wrong, it wouldn't make any difference to me if they did, although I'm beyond happy that those I love support me fully.  In fact, I really expected to get a little more Judgy McJudgerson from some people, but I have heard nothing but support and happiness for me. 

I do find it interesting that I got a lot more judgement from people when I was going in for Lap Band surgery than what I'm getting for plastic surgery.  I'm sure that there are many (both valid and not) reasons for that.  It is just interesting. 

I'm looking forward to a slower week, both at work and personally.  I hope you all have a wonderful week yourselves!

GAY BINGO!?!?!?! That sounds like so much fun!! I love drag queens!

I am happy for you that you are getting support for your plastics. I think folks tend be less judgy of post- WLS plastics than otherwise "cosmetic " plastics.

OMG...Gay bingo? I need to go to that!

That's interesting about peoples reactions to your different surgeries. I wonder why that is? Now that you say that though, it does seem that people are a lot more judgmental about WLS than other elective surgeries. Hmm...

Gay bingo sounds AWESOME!

And as far as judgement: Honey, you have put in the time and work to back up your success. I think most people realize that you EARNED this! ;)
