In 100 days, Tony & Cheryl's 'baby daughter' will be 40 years old. I suppose that day, July 26th, will be just as much a rite of passage for them as it will be for me. After all, I am pretty much a miracle baby (which I might blog about at some point), so the fact that I'm here, thriving 40 years later is a pretty awesome thing.

Everything I have done for the past 39 years, 265 days have been ultimately to make Tony & Cheryl proud... to not embarrass them... to be as good of a daughter to them as they have been parents to me. Obviously, I'm not perfect... I've made plenty of mistakes & bad decisions... but for the most part, I think I've done a pretty good job. I've always had an inner voice asking, "What would Mommy & Daddy think if they knew you did this?" And that voice has kept me from doing a lot of stupid stuff. LOL! It's the truth!

Finally, the good stuff... I weighed in yesterday, and I somehow managed to lose 2.4 more pounds. Amazing, because I ate rice last week (which is my favorite food in the whole wide world). This weigh in was significant, because I am now at 140.2 pounds. When I stopped going to Weight Watchers in 2008, I was at 140.6:
|Yesterday... Yep, down 11.6 lbs total since March 6th!|
I'm below my last weigh-in weight, so that is very motivating for me! Another reason why this weigh-in is significant is because I'm about to move into the 130s... and I don't plan to see the 140s EVER AGAIN. Adios, 140s!!!

100 days and counting... Toodles!
