Yay!

Oren got to take the sling off today. Let me tell you, you want to thin your hair out, put a 5 year old in a sling for 4 weeks. What a relief that is over with. Although, by some fluke happening, my cell phone is in Nampa and I am not. It fell out of my purse at the Family Dollar in the parking lot. Not realizing, I went to Oren's appointment, and afterward needed to make a phone call. Panicked, I emptied the purse, diaper bag, stroller, and much of William's side of the van which is where I put my purse usually. Nada.... So I went back to the store and scoured the parking lot, checked at the store, up and down the aisles and the front desk. I concluded rather upsettley that someone had picked it up and kept it. When I got home someone from the TANNING SALON RIGHT NEXT DOOR had called saying someone had turned in the phone and they had it at the store. Problem is, I won't be going back down to Boise until next Wednesday and I won't be able to go down the Nampa that day, it's way out of the way and I will have my friend and her little 4 week old with me. What fun. Just another day in the life of me.

But I don't mean to sound like I am whining. Stuff like this happens a lot with me and I pretty much take it in stride. Please picture me laughing as I am really just telling a funny, ironic, story about the chaos that is my life. And I want another baby..... LOL

Happily, I got on the scale today and discovered............ drumroll please............ I weigh less than 200 for the first time in at least 4 years! I know that is still a really high number, hence the new year's resolution. My eating plan is working. I put on a shirt today that is usually a little snug. Not today, it hung straight down from my chest and did not bump over my stomach! I also went shopping and found that I don't have to buy the expensive bras in 40 B, the cheap ones come in 38 B, which now fits. Sorry, this just feels so good. It's been a long time since I was this happy with myself. I want to love myself as much as Mark loves me. Imperfections and all. But it would be easier if that me was a little smaller. :-)

Hooray for your new goals and the success you are having! I think that is wonderful. I would love to know what eating plan you are on that is helping you drop weight so quickly (or lose inches). That is so exciting...something I definitely need to try!

Yeah for the sling coming off! I'm not sure I could handle Madison being in that spot for 4 wks...And hopefully you'll be able to get your cell phone back soon. I certainly would be interested in knowing what eating plan you're on,too. Maybe we bloggers can all do it together, since doing things as a group can be a huge motivator. Food for thought....

Congrats! I know what a wonderful thing it is too fit BACK into things that have been sitting in boxes. Sorry about the phone, though. That's a rough one to be without!

Awesome! Keep up the good work. Glad your little one is out of the sling. Don't you sometimes wonder how much good those are on a child??!! Please do post your eating plan...If it's healthy and works I would really be interested.
