I went to the salon today for a touch up. Sitting there I decided to change it up a little, 40 pounds lost and 4 bra sizes deserved a change. Went a bit darker with a touch of auburn and a little different on the cut. Turned out nice I think. A little change is good!
So, last night Madison and I sat for our nightly reading session. Now, I want to start with the fact that she is doing a great job! She is enjoying herself and her confidence is growing. With that on the record, I can not believe how different this experience is versus the one had with Megan. I am not comparing, just saying. She will read a word correctly 3 times in a row but then in another sentence totally different. She is so much like I
was am. Focus was never a strong suit, my mind aways wandering. I find myself sometimes looking into her eyes trying to see behind them to figure out what is going on in that little head.
We come across the word “friends”, not a word I expected her to get but it was her attempt that changed the course of the session. She calmly came to the word and confidently blurted out “fluffy buddies”. I guess there must have been something strange on my face because she started to laugh, then laughter turned to hysterics which of course set me into laughter. I so love how she does not take herself too seriously. I love to watch her laugh. I guess Fluffy buddies can be friends too!
And here she is today, teaching the “class” sight words.

Love it! 🙂
That is AWESOME! Fluffy is what a girlfriend and I call ourselves….better than the “O” word I say. PS, congrats on the 40 pounds! Did you post about how you lost it?
I had been dieting for about a year prior to surgery, walking, elliptical and just watching portion sizes. I lost 20 pounds. 10 pounds came from the mastectomy and DIEP surgery itself. The rest has come from the fact that I look better and feel better so I am motivated to keep going. I have lost 10 pounds since July 2 and hope to drop 10-20 more before our Disney trip in February. Today I walked 3 miles which is a great day. I try to do a mile a day or 20+ minutes on the elliptical but does not happen every day. Reduced carbs and just trying to make better choices.
