So looks like i really have to stick to this weight loss thing even if i wanted to give up.

Last week while taking my kids out back to play my 3 yr old grabbed a beach sand set ( little shovels, buckets, rakes, and molds) and i told her we had to leave it inside because the sand in the back was yucky dirty sand. so she asks " mommy, where can i use my shovels?". I, not thinking much about it, say "at the beach my baby". Of course this is followed by a "oh, we are going to the beach mommy, the Florida beach?" I tell her we we are not going any time soon but to soften the possible disappointment i tell her "MAYBE for Elijah's birthday in June, I'll have to talk to daddy about it."

Let me just say 3 yr olds remember everything. If it's something they really want they obsess over it and they repeat it over and over. As soon as my husband came home she happily yelled at him " daddy we are going to the Florida beach!" i guess that's her version of talking to daddy about it. i can not count how many times my daughter has excitedly expressed that we are going to the Florida beach this week. everyday, several times a day. so i guess thats what we are doing for Elijah's 2nd birthday and now i really have to lose this weight.

Funny in my goals on my profile I state that i want to wear a swim suit with my head held high. i guess i am going to have to see this through sooner than i anticipated lol.

    Kids can put you in a pickle can't they. They are like little sponges they soak up everything. That's why I would tell mine all the time. Mommy has to think about that one and get back to you. I never say something because as you can see they will hold you to it.

    Peace and Love

    LOL! I know the feeling! No matter how you look hold your head high! Remember there's a 3yr old who sees you as the most beautiful woman in the world! She won't care how you look in a swimsuit, just that you are there right next to her. Best of luck on your journey!
