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 week...at 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!

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