Friends, I can eat again! And, more than that, I actually like eating!!!! I am also free to move about. Except, well, things have changed.
Take a few nights ago. A good friend had us over for pizza and afterwards we played a few games on the Wii. After watching my husband battle it out with my friend’s husband, I decided to give tennis a try. Just one match; easy as eating pie (a favorite pastime of mine).
The next day, I couldn’t move my arm. Seriously, who gets sore from playing the Wii? Or from walking down the street? And, who huffs and puffs when they walk up two stairs? Holy Moses, what has happened to my fit body?
Ah, I didn’t move for 10 weeks. I guess I lost more than weight, I lost all my muscle tone.
Luckily, I can build that up, along with my old personality. It feels great to smile, laugh and joke with my husband again. Not to mention spending time with my kids. I have missed them tremendously!
Now that my previous self is returning, I think I’ll go run a marathon! Or watch one on TV while eating apple pie and ice cream. Hey, I’ve got a hungry, growing baby to consider.
