Quick Update on the Incredible Shrinking Woman

So I'm down almost 30 pounds. I KNOW, right? When I hit the big 30, I'm planning to reward myself. Possibly with a full body massage. And an iTunes gift card. I've told my students that their teacher is actually shrinking this year! They haven't noticed, and my feelings would be hurt, but they're 8. They don't notice much that's not on a video game or television screen. One did say that she could get her arms around me when she hugged me now. I'll take it.

But here are some pics that got me motivated. My phone camera sucks, and I'm too lazy to get the good camera out at this point. When I hit the next goal, I swear I'm totally going to do that. Really.

Before pic, taken in San Francisco with my fabulous writer friends. I felt huge. And I was.



27.4 lbs down from where I started. 2 sizes down. No looking back, no stopping me now!

  9. Remember the days when we rewarded ourselves with food? My mom and I are on a journey toward better health through food with the motto that "food is our medicine." We both have Narcolepsy and are dealing with it via food rather than spooky meds. We have been learning how to reward ourselves with things like massage, mani/pedi, quiet time with a book...things that take TIME, time we deserve thank you very much.

    Love your blog! Have laughed till I peed my pants a few times...seriously had to stop reading it during lunch break at work for fear of losing control. :)
