At the end of a very long exhausting hot day in humid Georgia I felt miserable and just wanted to relax. Somehow my granddaughter talked me into taking her swimming. Like most outdoor pools they have a ten minute break every hour and I was happy to rest. So Munchie says she needs a pillow, we made a makeshift pillow and covered her with a towel. I laid next to her and within what felt like only moments she got up and said lets go swimming. I told her the whistle had to blow first and in the background a whistle blew as a warning to someone. Sonic further explained the water had to start ans just when she said okay its time all the water started up. I'm thinking I was shorted five minutes but the timing was funny.
I'm currently traveling in time to the future and transforming into a new, healthier me on the trip.

When my now-11yo daughter was younger, she was hugging me and said (as only a sweet little girl can say), "You know why I love your flab, Mama? When I snuggle with you, I feel like a baby kangaroo!"
*laughing even a few years later over that one*
The nice thing since I've lost a little weight, though? She was hugging me the other day and said, "I just wanted you to see this," and proceeded to show me how far her arms could reach each other around my waist. It was very encouraging to know she can almost grab her elbows behind me!
My 20 month old kept running thru the house saying "me want cookie, me want cookie" worse than Cookie Monster himself. I kinda felt bad because I've rid the house of all junk food even for the kids. I said "sorry baby no cookies today". Two minutes later he brings me the box of Wheat Saltines I just bought, says "Me want cookie". And was so excited over his "cookie". I am grateful for his healthy habits already.

This thread is for everyone to share their lighter selves. Did something funny happen to you this week? It could have been as silly as tripping at the gym or your child said something that made you want to crawl in a hole. Share here so we can all have a chuckle.
If nothing funny happened this week - then come and list 2 or 3 things that you are grateful for this week. It could be that you stuck to your plan. You checked off things on your to do list. You went down a pants size. You are starting to see definition. Whatever floats your boat!
The weight loss journey can be difficult and frustrating. I think it's better to focus on what we are doing and what's going right than the other side of things.
