Hi Amanda'sMom! Does she still have her gorgeous smile?!!
I sympathize with the weight issue, I've got like 50 pounds, which seems hopeless, so I guess I'll have another chocolate Santa ...
. My friend and I were talking, though, and we decided that if it was our *priority* to be slim, we would be. Honestly, if that was my priority in life, as it once was, I'd be at the gym all the time. However, at this point in my life, my priority is my children, and that's okay. It's a very, very small point in my life. I see pictures of me and have to think, "hey, that fat chick has the same dress as me!" Then
. But you know, I believe there will be a day when my children won't even notice if I'm gone for an hour or two, and I will see those pictures and think, "oh, yeah, that was when I was mothering small children" and it will be just another thing, like my Farrah bangs were. Just don't say "what are Farrah bangs?" 'cause that will be a whole 'nother issue!
