So I was looking in the bathroom mirror today and it dawned on me...I look "normal" I still could lose some weight and of course I am going to try but if I don't lose more, well, that is ok too.

So I decided to take a couple of photos just to remember the day where I realized I am normal I still have some work to do on my belly but it will never be flat, lets face it, I had 10 1/2 pound babies and my last was a c-section but it is not bad for a nearly *ahem* 40 year old woman.

Thank you! Reading things like that give me an emotional boost that I need more and more the closer I get to 40

I suppose I could have fixed my hair and smiled before I snapped photos of myself to post on the web! lol

You look AWESOME!! Congratulations!!



Our stats are similar (except I'm 3 inches SHORTER than you ) and I'm staring down the barrel of the big 4-0 next year, too. Those babies sure do a number on our bods, don't they?? Oh well - totally worth it. I'm willing to give up a flat tummy in exchange for some awesome kiddos!!

Congrats, again. You are a smokin' hot mama!!

You look amazing!! Way better than normal but I completely understand what you mean. I feel that way too. I don't "stick" out in a crowd for all the wrong reasons hehe. You've done a fantastic job!

Also, we are the same height and I just reached my maintenance weight of 140-145 on Saturday and although you look incredible at this weight, if you do want to get down to 145 but aren't sure if there's a point to it, it's incredible how much each pounds makes a difference, even at our height. Anyway, not that *I* think that you need it, but it's something I wish I had known when I wanted to stop at 155.

Enjoy this because you look HOT, I'd NEVER guess you were almost 40!!!
