My kids never saw me like this before

I was at the gym today just thinking back to how far I have come. My daughter said mommy why are you putting those big pants on as I got ready for the gym. I said well honey I don't have that many work out pants so I wear what I can keep up. She said oh well you need some new pants!

But in the gym I realized....MY KIDS HAVE NEVER SEEN ME THIS "SKINNY"

I weighed in the 250's when I had my first child 9 years ago. Can you believe it I have not been this size since 2000.

I have also made a decision I am going to get rid of my clothes this week all my 28's, 26's, 24's, 22's, 20's GOOD BYE I am so glad to get rid of them NO GOING BACK. I am keeping my largest size pants 28's for my final progression pic of me and how far I have come.

My kids tell me I am skinny. My one daughter said Mommy you are skinny I said no I am not she said well your not fat your not skinny you are in between and I love you!

That is all a mom needs to hear!

Peace & Love my friends
