A First...For This Blog

I got called out on a recent post. I totally had it coming and fully expected it from the sisters that did it. You know who you are... :)

I know I shouldn't care so much about what the scale says. I get that. I really, really, really do. Sometimes it's hard to break old habits and seriously..."Hi, my name is Leeann....and I'm a scale addict...".

However, in an effort to be positive and uplifting...let me tell you some good things.

I. Feel. Amazing!! Really. I haven't felt this good in...well... ever? I have more confidence, right now, than I have ever had in my entire life. Granted, that is attributed to a few things, but the fact that I have worked so hard to get where I am right now, helps a lot. I'm proud of myself! I did this! I'm still a work in progress...but dammit, I'm gonna pat myself on the back for getting here!

Pink has a new song out...I'm sure you've heard it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE some of the lyrics in it: "You're so mean, when you talk about yourself, you were wrong. Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead. So complicated, look happy, you'll make it! Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel like you're less than... perfect." This is the attitude I want my daughters to have, so I better work on myself, too.

So, I'm going to do something I've never done before. An absolute first, for this blog. I am going to post a
picture of my lower half. Yup. I've always hidden it. But, I just bought some cute new jeans, that I love. So, no more hiding. This is ME. Love me for all that I am. Or, don't. That's okay, too. :)

I will never be stick skinny, again. (Thanks for my French ass, Meme!) ;) Having kids has totally changed my shape. But...I'm going to be proud of how I feel, where I am...and where I'm going. 

Even when the scale pisses me off. ;)
