Becoming the Pin-Up Girl

I'm on a journey from obesity to health.. and I'm hoping to reveal my inner Pin-Up Girl along the way ;-)

What does the Pin-Up Girl have in common with a WWE wrestler?

WWE champ John Cena had a cervical discectomy with fusion after an injury to his neck - it turns out that he had his surgery a month before me. If he can recover and return to his career, I think I'll be okay.

My favorite pin-up to date

I normally would not approve of altering an artist's original work, but I love what Chris did for me in Photoshop with this Gil Elvgren piece (look closely). Sorry Mr. Elvgren.

A very nice evening

Well, the eBay auction isn't looking good for the ring. Oh well. We'll try again if we don't get this one. The auction closes in about 2 hours - I'm winning right now, but we can't afford to increase our bid much more.

I had a really nice visit last night. Two of my best friends, John (to my right) and his bf Shane (to my left), came over bearing a huge bouquet of gorgeous flowers and yummy Thai takeout. It was a great pick-me-up. I haven't really been able to get out of the house much since my surgery, and I've been missing my friends terribly. Here is a pic from last night - you can see what my incision looks like. After my appt. with Dr. Randall next week, I can start putting some scar treatments on it. I can't put anything on it for now. I think I'll be wearing a lot of scarves and turtlenecks this winter.

*Update - yeah, we lost the auction :-( ..sigh. Oh well, we'll keep looking. It's still great knowing that I can call him my fiancee soon!
