At my follow-up appointment yesterday, I told Dr. O'Brien, that he has given me my life back. I think I hugged him three times. Told him that I'd bake cookies for him. I think I even told him I wanted to give him a puppy. I really didn't have adequate words to thank him -- I didn't have the words to tell him what he's given me once again.
I'm asking my friends and family to leave a comment to this post adding your two cents to that which Dr. O'Brien has done to help restore me to my life, to my friends, to my family. You have all seen me on the sidelines. You've made sacrifices and changed plans as much as I have.
Fitbloggin -- remember all the activities I had to sit out from?
Everyone -- remember when you'd go to hug me and I'd wince?
Weight Loss / Health Gain people -- remember how much pain I felt over each lb that crept back on?
(PS: this is my 500th post... I find it fitting to dedicate it to the man that helped me return to me....)
