Thanks, Mrs. B!




Mrs. B has been losing a lot of weight lately. I didn't realize how much until she invited me over to let me go through stuff that is too big for her! I was very happy to do so. She was afraid I'd feel insulted by the offer. Why would I be insulted? If I don't want it, I don't have to take it home, and really, I'm just as fat with or without the offer, you know... It's useful to recycle and spend a little time fellowshipping together while I go through the goods.

In fact, I'm going to pray we both lose weight at the same pace so I can have a new winter wardrobe in the fall. What you're seeing in the second picture is just a few of the things that hadn't been thrown in the washer yet. She presented me with the clothes perfectly clean, but because we have sensory issues in our house I must wash everything again so I can smell like "our" brand of dryer sheets LOL!

I can't wait to wear some of this good stuff. As you can see from the top picture, I still look about six months pregnant. The BMI charts tell me I am MORE than 100 pounds over my ideal weight. Bleh. I'd be happy to just lose 50 and forget the chart.

  2. I lost 35 lbs. Then I gained back 12. I've got too many too lose, and no motivation. So, I understand how you feel.

    Ultimately, I had decided that I want to see my grandkids. I want to be a fun grandma. Not a wheelchair bound gimp.

    Hey, maybe I'll go for a walk tomorrow...

  3. Hey honestly you don't look that bad! (as in according to the bmi chart) I wouldn't have guessed that at all. That is so cool that you got all those new clothes.
    I had to give all of my clothes that didn't fit anymore to my friend's teenage daughter (yeah those clothes were stylish)(not so with the ones I have to wear now)because she lost a lot of weight. Boy that took the wind out of my sails.
