how annoying!

This is how my low carb journey began. I wrote it for my "sucess story" atricle the weight loss group i was/am involved in did on me. I lost 60 pounds in about 7 months. That was for my wedding 10/11/09......just about 2 years later and I'm in exactally the same spot! HOW FRICKING ANNOYING!!!

I started my journey in August of 2008…..

I am 33 years old 5’’ tall (ok ok 4’11’’ don’t judge me! Haha!), last year I tipped the scales at 207 pounds!! 200+ pounds on a 5 foot; I mean 4’11’’ frame is nothing pretty! I was truly in denial about how heavy I was. My life has been blessed with a loving partner and a little girl who just couldn’t be any sweeter…..why worry about my weight?

Well one day I was cleaning up the house, listing to my little girl play in her room. My daughter runs into the kitchen asking for a snack…I asked her if she wanted something that was a bit of a treat and she hurried towards me with a smile on her face and threw her arms around me! She said “Mommy you are the best Mommy in the world!” At that moment she said “hey I can’t touch my fingers together.” WHAT? Honestly my brain didn’t compute what she had just said…..she squeezed me as hard as she could and with a strained voice said it AGAIN!!! I told her to stop as I got her snack together and hurried her on her way. She walked out of my kitchen and I burst into tears! I tried to cry quietly into a dishtowel…I leaned over the sink howling like a banshee trying to get a handle on my emotions but I couldn’t stop!! I was doing that trying to catch your breath breathing thing that you do when you start crying really hard….I looked up and saw my reflection in the window!! I stopped crying……I stood staring at myself looking at my double chin and my rosy red cheeks…..I was looking at a person that I didn’t recognize….I guess I must have been standing there for a while because before I knew it my beloved and daughter were standing behind me. “Did you hear me” my love asked? I said NO and told them I had to go to the bathroom and off I ran!!

This is a few days after the above story happened.
