Know what makes me happy?


Scoring this $300 Lilly Pulitzer dress for $30 on Ebay...NEW.WITH.TAGS! Gotta love someone else's junk...(I know, I know-it was last season...but it's my treasure now)
Did I mention I also bought a pair of brand-new-authentic-with tags pair of Citizens of Humanity Kelly Jeans for $35 last year too?....You betcha! (These were my "I"ll feel good when I can get into these babies" jeans)
Oh! One more thing...
My weight on 1/28/07-188 lbs-YIKES (Hey, I was pregnant with twins!)
My weight on 1/28/08-119 lbs
What a difference a year makes! I normally wouldn't post my weight for the entire blogosphere to see, but you see...this blog is for ME too and I have worked SO.DARN.HARD that I'm throwing caution to wind and posting it. For those of you doing the math..I know, I know but some of it I had gained with my first child too. Look, Kate Hudson gained 70 lbs with ONE child and she's got a killer bod now! Although I've reached pre-baby status there's still so much work to do. Ladies who have birthed babies...I think we ALL know what I'm talking about! And for those of you who don't, that is down right AWESOME! And that's all I'll say about that...

I was 188 when I delivered just ONE child and I am nowhere close to 119 now....so you are THE BOMB. After I have this one, you are going to be my inspiration. Love the dress too, BTW.

.cI'm so worried about buying stuff on eBay because I'm worried I'm going to get scammed. Maybe I'll take another gander.

And, congrats on the weight loss! If I ever get back to my pre-E weight...I'll post about it AND tattoo it to my forehead!

Awesome accomplishment!! You must look amazing! Wish you were here in VA for a celebration night out.

You are my inspiration...because of *you*, I started getting up at (ugh) 5:45 3 times a week to workout before the boys wake up. It hasn't been too bad since I haven't really slept that late for years. I have actually thought at times, "L is getting up..." and it helps motivate me. Thanks!

AND congrats!!!

Amazing! I know you worked so hard to get there. I did work out this morning for the first time in several weeks. I know you commented earlier how it helps you think and I agree. I miss it when I can't go for my run - well really a walk/jog. I'm nowhere near your level.

Congratulations! And what a great score on the dress! Don't you love days like those?

Congrats on your purchases and your weight loss. I just got to 120 and I was 128 right after Christmas. Why is it that 120 doesn't look so good after having babies?

Congratulations - that is so amazing! You are such an inspiration! I gained 60 lbs. with my son 4 years ago and I've been saying I was going to lose the last 20 lbs. for the last three years. This year, I bought a super-cute bathingsuit online...and I have to be in it by May!! Wish me luck!
