I Have a Secret

June 17, 2010

Guess what?  I have a little secret

Do you want to know?  Do you?  Do you?
Ok, lean in real close now... My mommy used to look like this.  This mommy watched a lot of TV, and worked a lot. She didn't play outside very much. Look she's even using her computer outside! She wouldn't sit on the floor with me, because it was too hard for her to get up.

That wasn't my secret yet... Do you still want me to tell you?
Now no looking at my mommy's fat little legs, okay? I'm gonna hide 'em.

 What's that... go ahead and show them mommy?   OK.
Now this mommy, she plays outside a lot, and sometimes even goes outside and plays without me! She sits on the floor and helps me with my puzzles.
And you know something else about this mommy... She may be the same mommy on the inside, but she doesn't feel like hiding as much as she did
100 POUNDS AGO!!!!!

Yep... You heard it right.  I lost 3.8 pounds today (ok I had to lose some Spanx to get the extra .2, so what?) to get exactly, spot on the nose to a total loss of 100 pounds!
It was REALLY unexpected.  REALLY unexpected.  I was shaking most of my meeting.  I honestly haven't even begin to process it all right now.  When I do I'll have more to say, that's for sure.

What I do know is that this has been a long 20 months coming, and while I never doubted for a moment it would come - at some point.  I was never really sure exactly how long it would take either.  Now that I'm here, it is surreal.  What a long, strange, and quite honestly wonderful, trip its been.  And I would not have ever chosen another person to do it for than these 2 people (myself and my son):

There are a lot of people that have helped me along the way, but without my son and my husband, I would have never made it to today.  Well... I would have, but it would have looked MUCH different.  You two continue to inspire me every single day.  This one These hundred are for you!
