I hit a milestone this weekend. I have lost 50 pounds.
Just to put things in perspective, I googled "what weighs 50 lbs?"
* two and a half automobile tires
* fifty guinea pigs
Standing in the family dressing room with Greta and Finn, I slid the dress over my head. Greta's eyes got wide, and she said, "Wow, Mom. Just - WOW."
Finn shook his head solemnly, and said "Nope. No way. Too sexy."
That sealed the deal. I was so excited to fit into the dress I didn't have time to ponder where my 4 year old learned the word 'sexy'.
I have lost 50 lbs, but it is what I have gained that matters:
* more energy
* no aching back muscles, and knees that don't creak in the morning
* I can run. Run!
