I think I underestimate my daughter. They say that kids are always listening and that must be true. Today we were using our Wii Fit and Wii Sports for fun and exercise when she dropped a word bomb on me. "I need to keep exercising because I'm fat." Ouch. She is five.
I don't remember using that word ever but clearly she has connected the dots somehow. I can't tell you how much that hurt my heart. Yes, she is 63 lbs but she is also 47.75" tall at just under 6 years old. She's a solid, tall girl. I told her she is not fat and asked her why she said that. To which she simply jiggled her belly in her hands.
Another ouch. Honestly, I wasn't sure what to reply. So I simply said that we are eating better and exercising to be healthier. It's the truth. I can't tell her I haven't worried about her weight. That would be a lie. But, now that we are eating differently and exercising more, I am less worried.
I haven't talked about my weight loss journey much so far. Partly because I wanted it to be real. I wanted to know I was sticking with it before sharing it with the world. I feel I can safely say that now. I am at a loss of 28 lbs from my highest weight. More than that, my attitude has changed about myself, my relationship with food. My energy is up. We are walking 2 miles at least 3-4 times per week.
One reason, of many, that I am excited for these changes? Seeing these new habits taking root in my daughter.

It seems like every day I get an invite to one of those parties. I make it sound like a dirty word, don't I? To be fair, it's not always the same kind of party. Oh no, we've got an abundance of choices; Pampered Chef, Scentsy, Tupperware, Perfectly Posh, Origami Owl, Tastefully Simple, ItWorks Wraps, Noonday...
