Great survey. I LOVE Corrine Baiely Rae too. "Like a Star" is one of my fave songs. Reminds me so much of my sweet girl.

80 pounds is a *lot*. I have to say, I'm glad you ate the food you did. Wouldn't want you to disappear too fast!!

I know you're probably not going to post inches lost, but did you measure them? See what your waist size was before, etc.?

:]

PS at 32 you are a baby. Waah.

80 POUNDS??? Go, you. That is fantastic.

And don't beat yourself up on the b/fing thing. Not everyone can do it. You're feeding your kid, no matter how you do it. That's all that matters.
