My New Year’s Resolutions for 2013 are:
- Fly an airplane.
- Get my 2013 Spartan Trifecta.
- Go Skydiving.
- Have my skin reduction surgery.
- Go on 10 dates.
- Help encourage 100 people to change there lives and get healthier.
- Complete the Vermont Beast and beat my 2012 time.
- Repel down a 22 story building.
- Fall in Love with someone who loves me.
I have been thinking a lot about these things lately, and it not going to be easy to complete this list in 2013, but I know I can do it. As far as this list goes the 3 items that I am most nervous about completing are: Going on 10 Dates, Having my skin reduction surgery, and falling in love. You may be asking your self with everything I have completed in 2012, why would these 3 make me nervous.
Going on 10 Dates, and falling in love… My hole life, I have focused on my professional life, and nothing else mattered. That started to change, when I made the decision to loose weight. Since then I have been focusing on my professional life, and I made time for my health. It was not until, I went to Vermont that I put my health ahead of my professional life. Now that, I have my professional life and health on track, it is time to take the next big step, it’s time to focus on my personal life. I know that I am going to have to get over a lot of things that personal scare the heck out of me, but if I can make it though the Vermont Beast, I can make it though 10 dates!
The other one that has me real nervous is the skin reduction surgery, I have an appointment with a plastic surgeon on January 9th to talk about my options. From what I have been told in the past I will be looking at a full body tuck, and we they estimated that they would be removing 30 to 50 lbs of skin. I am hoping that we can find a way to donate the extra skin to a burn center, instead of just discarding it. As far as paying for the surgery, I am hoping that my insurance company will help cover it, but if not, I will find a way to raise the money required to make this happen.
For the first time my life, I am looking forward to the new year with excitement and wonder to see just what 2013 going to bring my way.
