I've lost my daughter - and I've never been happier!!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Okay, put down the phone, don't call social services just yet!! My daughter is fine and sitting in the living room watching Nick Jr.

However, I have lost 35.4 pounds which is exactly what my daughter weighed when she stepped on the scale this afternoon. I have lost a very tall two year old!!!

The crazy thing is I'm always picking her up and telling her how heavy and big she is getting, but I used to walk around with that . . .EVERY DAY!! No wonder I felt terrible before, I was hiding a toddler somewhere!

Adam (my hubby) has lost the same amount almost. Together we have lost twins!!

Now, next goal, lose one of my first graders!! The weight not really lose one of them.

    I hadn't thought of weight loss from that perspective. What a wonderful and unique way of looking at the situation.

I really enjoyed your blog - you've put a big smile on my face!
Good for you and your DH that you're both getting healthy and improving your and your kid's lives.

    How hilarious. I haven't thought of my weight loss in that perspective. I've lost a big bag of dog food. Whew.

I think it is great you are getting a big girl bed for your daughter. She will love it. My son loves his and sleeps longer too in it. Maybe you will get a bonus with the purchase like I did. More sleep = happier mommy!

    That's awesome. I've never thought about weight like that. I have a 3 year old who is over 30 pounds, and to think about his weight just hanging on me really puts it into perspective, so THANK YOU. I'm even more encouraged than I was before! lol! emoticon
