So my mom lives on the other side of the state from me. She has never been very supportive since I have gained weight other than pointing it out. So I am trying to secretly get in shape with only my sister knowing what I am doing. I know the sounds crazy but I want there to be a big change when she sees me again. Last time I saw her I got the comment your belly looks smaller but it must be because you are wearing black. Well last night before showering I looked in the mirror. I know this is normally a HUGE mistake seeing myself naked in the mirror but you know what?? I can see shoulders!!!!! I have always carried my weight in my upper body and around my face and I was sooo excited I could see the start of these very cute shoulders!!!! I can't wait to wear tank tops and sleeveless dresses again!! In my moms eyes I will always be the slim teenager. Lets just say it has been a long time since those days.

This is me back in high school. My mom only wants this back.

Congratulations on your loss and your commitment to get thin again.

Congrats on the progress thus far. I feel similarly about my sister. I am not going home for Easter or Mother's Day because I want my sIster's jaw to drop when she sees me in a bathing suit at our family vacation in June. Plus I still have a little more work to do before then. Hope you wow her when you hit your goal.
