Am I the only one that has neglected their own needs while caring for their children, spouse, job, home, pets, etc.? I know this is a pretty common issue for women and some men too.
I had a revelation this morning. Lap-band surgery has meant that I've HAD TO take care of myself, at least somewhat. First there was the self-care required to prep for the surgery and the after-care following it. And then there is the expense of actually paying for the surgery. There's also going in for fills, the focus on healtful eating, exercise and even buying some new clothes. All of these are things that I do, JUST FOR ME!
Overindulging in food, speacial meals and treats used to be the way I "cared" for myself. Now I care for myself by, well, taking care of myself! How cool is that?
