The best New Years present


So, as many of you know, I have been on a weight loss journey for some time now.....practically the past TEN years, however, really committed since this past October. I am proud to say that as of this past Monday, I have shed 58.8 lbs (Yes, every 1/10th counts!!!) That is more weight than my Nicholas weighs!!!! Anyway, this morning as I was getting dressed, Nick came to show me the drawing he made on his MagnaDoodle toy. He said he drew Daddy, Mommy, and Nicky. And then he pointed to the big pants that Mommy was wearing. He said that those are my "old" pants, and now I am so skinny (NOT!) that they are too big on me! It was sooooo cool to have my 6yo realize the healthy changes I've been making and notice the difference it has made in me! I just about cried! :)
