The Blizzard Lady

I have a confession to make. I've lost 5 pounds in the last two weeks. And not for really good reasons.

I was sitting on the couch last week, post-nap, having a blizzard. You see, I've developed this terrible habit since Sam's birth. He induces a terrible sugar/dairy craving, you see, and I found that if I order a large blizzard, I can take it home, pick at it, and put it back, and make that one treat last a couple days. So I was doing a big blizzard a least.

So, back to last week, I'm sitting on the couch, having my snack, and Chris comes up to me, bothering, picking at me. As usual I offer a bit of my ice cream (ice treams) to him, but he is not interested. Instead he points to the cup, and yells, "It's Mommy!"

I look, and there on the blizzard is indeed a woman with long dark hair, and she's super cheesily holding a blizzard in her hand. Smiling cheesy. Hmmm...

She wasn't particularly fat or thin, but it made me feel fat thinking that Chris thinks I'm a model for Dairy Queen.

I haven't been back to Dairy Queen since.

Now, if only I could break my terrible Milk and Cookies habit.

Along those same lines, this morning, he picked up my flyer for the Ovarian Cancer Run/Walk and pointed to that lady and said "It's Mommy!"

Now, That made me feel better! I wouldn't mind looking like this gal, fit and trim, and doing a good deed for Ovarian Cancer. So, I'm getting back on the Bandwagon and getting ready to do this walk. If you don't recall, I lost my Aunt Debbie to Ovarian Cancer 3 years ago this coming weekend, and I've done the Ovarian Cancer Run/Walk to raise funds. And I'm determined to start losing weight for better reasons by doing it again this year too!

If you feel so moved, please donate to help. Or you can sign up to walk with me, if we get 8 people we can form a Team!

Breastfeeding makes me crave insane amounts of sugar too. I don't remember having this issue while nursing Hannah but maybe I did. Crazy!
