Since I’ve lost weight I’ve had a couple of friends pass by without recognizing me, then come back and apologize for blowing me off. But here’s the best one yet. I was supposed to pick up my SON last Sunday at my sister-in-law, Anne’s church. I arrived early and decided to slip in next to her to hear the preacher. My middle son, Stephen, sat on her other side. AFTER service he looks at me shocked. “I didn’t know that was you sitting there. I just saw this blonde by Auntie Anne and figured it was one of her friends!” ~January 27, 2013
Real Time Update:
Went shopping for a mother-of-the-bride dress this week. I couldn’t believe that I could wear sizes 8 and 10 after shopping all that time in the plus sizes!! Wahoo!! Still didn’t find the perfect dress, but came home so encouraged about the styles and sizes I can now wear.

You go girl!!
Thank you, my friend! You have always been an inspiration!
Well done Paula! Had to google to check what the sizes meant because ours are different in the UK but that is a UK 12/14. You are catching up with me 🙂
Thanks Marie! I haven’t been able to wear a 10 for probably 15 years! I’m almost 5 foot 9, so an 8 or 10 is about right for my height. Now I just need to get this last tummy pooch to go! And YOU have been such an inspiration to me!
Hmm, tummy’s.. Not sure mine will ever be the same as it was before the children 🙂
Good point Marie!
