Last year I went through a horrible break up about the same time I found out about my liver failing and leading me to wls. Heart broken and sick dating took a back burner to getting my health back.
I went on a few awful dates but nothing that inspired.
Last night I went out on my 1st date since surgery. While I wasn't excited about it, I had a fantastic time in the end. We went to the Santa Monica Pier amusment park and rode the ferris wheel and played all the games. I had so much energy!! almost felt like a different person.
After playing at the park we went to Bubba Gumps for food... I was concerned as food hasn't been sitting well with me this last week. However we ordered the sampler appetizer thing. I had cajun shrimp cocktail and some shrimp spinach dip with a few chips. IT was fantastic I felt like "normal" if you know what I mean.. My date didn't even notice I didn't touch any of the other fried and fatty stuff.
I ended up having a fantastic night with a nice/fun guy, came away with a bunch of stuffed animals from the games, and felt like a normal girl again.
P.S. I have dropped from a 24W to a 14/16 misses .. I am a happy girl today.
