We have to be on the road by 10am so we won't have a minute to spare. We plan to eat lunch (at what we think is the best Tex-Mex/Mexican food joint we can find around here...I want the Sopa de Tortilla sans tortillas just chicken mmmmm...) , go to my pre-op appointment, and then drive the remaining 2 hours to our hometown.
I'm really excited to see what tomorrow brings. In the meantime I've been going back through pics and reminding myself where I came from and all the work I have done to get where I am at today.
Here I am right before I got pregnant.
This is a pic when my eldest was 2 yrs old, she would look at that pic and tell me, "Mommy I want you to look like that again!" That used to make me sad and feel guilty. I'm wearing Old Navy jeans that are a size 10. I kept them as 'the jeans' to be able to get back into. Then once they were too big, I passed them on as inspiration pants. I now look at this and think, where is my muscle? LOL
Here we are the day she was born. Oh man! She was only 5#'s and I was well over 200#'s. (In my defense I was per-eclampitic and was induced 4 weeks early, HOWEVER I am the reason I had per-eclampsia I am sure! We ate like CRAP) I was a size 16/18 for quite some time after this pregnancy.
