Another NSV this morning...my DD gave me some more summer clothes last night and tried on a pair of Size 11 JEAN capris and they fit!!! Also several tops I bought her in Germany (they were too small for me) AND NOW THEY FIT!!!
WOW just gotta love IDEAL PROTEIN
That is so wonderful!! I am so happy for you! I wonder what the grandkids will say?
Before I started Ideal protein I remember my niece and nephew (back when they were 3 to 7) asking occasionally, "why are you so fat?" (emphasis on fat!) I was always shocked and almost cried at their candid questions. I didn't really know the why. They had to ask because NO ONE else in the family is fat. REALLY! My sisters each have 2 kids and both were size 2/4. My mother was heavier, but she died when they were too little to have many memories.
This past summer, we went to ride a child's train ride and I hesitated. I was still thinking, I CAN'T get MY behind in THAT seat!
My nephew asked why I didn't want to go and I said " I think it is too small for me." He grabbed my hand and said, "JUST DO IT! You aren't a fat lady anymore!" I nearly cried, again because of the directness of the comment but, more because here a little kid was able to see and say what I should have known all along.
I love the perspective they can bring.
I wonder what your grandbabies will say about their skinny grandma!
Well, today is another day of errands and running around. I will stop back later this evening. I hope everyone has a great day!
I wanted to say thank you to all those adding to the inspiration thread. I am going to post my appreciation for those comments here so we may keep that thread as "chatter" and clutter free as possible.
Gaile, I love your grandmother's thought. She is a wise lady.
Mamadancer and Sheeshie, your posts made me think "I needed those when I hit slow downs." I was always running trying to be somewhere else and not appreciating where I was in the long scheme of things.
Losing for Good, The "Don't Quit" poem is one of my favorites. I carried it in my wallet after high school. I have long since forgotten who gave me the laminated wallet card but, I have never forgotten the words.
