My 9 year old hugged me!

So I’m knocking 60 pounds now!  Wow!  I can’t believe how amazing I’m doing.  If I maintain control, which I should, I will hit 60, or more, by Monday – a mere 12 weeks.  INSANE!  I am SO focused/obsessed.  This week has been a little rough.  I had a work conference out of town so I knew I had no control over some of the food that I was going to consume, but I knew I’d make the best choices of what would be offered.  I wound up living off of condiment salads!  Huh??  Yep – a condiment salad- salad and tomatoes- you know, the stuff they offer for a sandwich, etc.  I’ve learned to eat salad without dressing but it’s definitely better with something juicy like a tomato or cucumber.  Eating was somewhat difficult for a few days for a few meals but I persevered and lived through it without stressing too much.  I lost atleast 2 pounds since Monday but weighed in the evening, instead of the morning, and you weigh heavier for some reason. 

Since it is Mother’s Day weekend, it was great to get home and see my girls, oh yeah, and my husband.  Our 18th Anniversary is on Mother’s Day this year.  He’s seen me in atleast 100 pound weigh range from size 22-28.  Ok, back to seeing my girls, they about knocked me down.  My 9 year old hugged me!  Guess what?  It might not seem like much, or stupid to some, but she could clasp her hands around me.  In her lifetime she has never been able to do that.  I’m so emotional anyways so I teared up with joy and a feeling accomplishment.  I am doing this.  I AM DOING IT FOR ME!
