First Day Back to Work after Weight Loss Surgery

My eyes popped open around 6:00 this morning, and I didn't feel tired, or worn out which is totally unlike any other morning before I had surgery.  Most days you couldn't peel me out of bed before 7:15, but I have discovered that I'm sleeping better and have new vitality!  It's exciting!!  I get all giddy because that means that the sleep apnea that has had authority over my sleep habits for the last few years has suddenly been usurped!  The sleep bandit is on the run because there is a new sheriff in town and it's name is "Weight Loss".  Weight is telling sleep apnea to "make my day"...  It really feels good to be refreshed after laying there for 6 to 8 hours and not snoring so loudly that you call the pigs from a least two counties over!  


So I checked out the work wardrobe and one of the tops that I liked to wear that was looking a little short in the front, now just flows over my stomach.  My pants on the other hand were a different story.  I played catch with them all day.  As I walked into work with my laptop bag and purse in one hand, I had to hold my pants up with the other.  On one trip to the bathroom, I almost lost them altogether! Woo!  That would have been a sight!  


Some of my co-workers noticed I looked thinner, other people just looked at me and thought I'd changed something like my hair or makeup.  I just smiled, took in the compliments, and appreciated the attention.  It was nice.  I was nice to feel good about the skin I was in and new path in which I am headed.  Look out people!
