There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

I am a slacker. seriously. I have been putting off a project for a friend a LONG, LONG time. Its going to be complete by tomorrow evening. I promised myself and her. I will post one of the drawings here today or tomorrow, so you an see what I am talking about. I know that this is a project which will bring more income at some point. Right now I am feeling like a blimp so nothing seems to be creating waves of motivation.

Since my surgery in September, moving around at all has become a chore. I was non weight bearing for 4 months almost. I didn't get a walking cast till December. Then I was not walking very far for very long since Jan. I didn't even get the appropriate shoes until March. And just now in June am i making it past 3 days in a row with no pain. Literally 3 out of 7 days, my ankle still hurts me. I guess putting metal in my body was a big mistake. But I am walking and its not swelling nearly as much.

Anyway, long story short, I have put on about 25lbs in that time. I guess, being extremely happy in love, I have let other things go unnoticed until lately when I thought holy carp! How are you going to move around with your kid at this weight? Its time for a serious diet. Or gastric bypass. The lap band looks good but I fear the portal! :(

I will let you know my final decision in the weeks to come. Thanks for any input! moving forward...
