jen hearn: i'm saying i did not get any shoes
jen hearn: i got a stuffed giraffe
Jason: Really?
jen hearn: YES!

Jason: I'm sorry Jen, but I like those shoes.

i'm ready...

time to get myself in shape.  i want to have less pain, i want to be strong.  i want to be under 200 pounds.  a size 16.  i can do this.

i'll blog about it.  no one reads blogs, so i'll use it as a daily journal.

so yesterday i went to a bariatric center to find out if any of the eating rules have changed since i had surgery 15 years ago.  it's basically the same!

1.  eat 3 meals a day.  don't graze.

2.  eat protein at every meal.  eggs, meat and some green vegetables.

3.  do not drink your calories.  no wine, no kefir, no milkshakes.

4.  no water 15 minutes before a meal or an hour after.  this keeps you feeling fuller longer.

5.  take all the vitamins and calcium recommended.

6.  exercise.  every day.

today's work:  ordering protein shakes and ostrim beef jerky online.  the shakes will be what i have for the first 2 days.

i want to start the liquid diet monday.  2 days liquids, 1 day soft protein, 1 day more firm protein, then back to all the chicken breast!

Flirted With You All My Life- Vic Chestnutt

Driving home from a funeral, a funeral for someone so young, who took his own life, this song came on.

Vic Chestnutt committed suicide soon after this song was released.

I am a man. I am self aware. 
 Everywhere I go, you're always right there with me. 
 I flirted with you all my life 
 Even kissed you once or twice 
 To this day I swear it was nice. 
 But clearly, I was not ready.  

When you touched a friend of mine, 
I thought I would lose my mind. 
 But I found out with time, 
 That really, i was not ready. 
 No, No 

Oh death, oh death, oh death. 
 Really, I'm not ready. 

Oh death you hinder me. 
 Death makes those dear to me. 
 Tease me with your sweet relief. 
 You're cool, and you are constant. 

 When my mom was cancer sick, 
 She fought but then succumb to it. 
 But you made her beg for it, 
 Lord Jesus, please, 
I'm ready. 

 Oh death, oh death, oh death. 
 Really I'm not ready. 
 No no. 
 Oh death, oh death, oh death. 
 Clearly I'm not ready.
