Four Generations

5.11.2014



It's Mother's Day and I thought I would share this photo that was taken on Thanksgiving of four generations since it is the only one I have. My mom, my daughter, granddaughter, and me. It isn't a great photo since the person who took it didn't know how to use my camera, but I am glad to have this of the four of us. I didn't share this photo before now because I had put on so much weight that I didn't even want to look at this. I am glad to say I don't look like this anymore. This photo and some others were what pushed me to lose weight. I'm not sharing the after yet, but I probably will another time plus tell you what I had to cut out of my diet to finally get the weight off and what I eat. I just wish I had known what was keeping me overweight way before now.

Part of what I have been doing is juicing and my daughter gave me this book for Mother's Day.

She also gave me three glasses to store the juices in if I want to make some ahead of time and freeze them or just carry these lidded glasses on the go. I can't wait to try some new juices.

The other thing I'm going to do today is enjoy these.

I sure hope y'all have the best Mother's Day.

  4. Great picture. So rare to get every generation in one picture. I can totally relate to the weight issues. Finally found doctor who knew exactly what was going on, and yes, it is a process. That book looks fantastic!

  5. Jealous of that wonderful photo! I never had the opportunity to see four generations together. My daughter told me she was expecting our first grandchild on the steps of the the church, after my mother's memorial service. What a bittersweet moment! I hope you have the best Mother's Day, ever, and you look great then and now. P. S. Finally found the "French Country" magazine - what a nice article!!

  10. Beautiful women, all of you! I've struggled with weight on and off over the years. I remember posting a photo of my overweight self on my fridge once ... the photo horrified me and was all the motivation I needed to start losing weight. Luckily, I've never been that heavy again. Love the lidded juice glasses you got. Great idea! Keep on juicin'!! Have a Happy Mother's Day, Kim!

  23. Happy Mother's Day. This is a beautiful family photo. I can definitely see a resemblance in you and your daughter. I'm interested in hearing how you were able to drop some pounds because I'm stuck and the weight is not coming off.

  24. Happy Mother's Day, Kim. A lovely and priceless photo of the four of you!

    I look forward to reading about your diet food. I need to lose about 15 pounds and
    it is really difficult to lose weight now whereas before - before 50 - it was easy.

    Enjoy your magazines! I am reading Prairie Style today as well. Love it!

  31. I'm super excited to hear about your juicing, Kim. I have fallen off the wagon lately but am really ready to jump back on. Need to start making juice at night instead of having wine lol! Low carb is working for us but we both really want the extra health benefits from juicing.

  34. Great photo! Looking forward to hearing about what you are eating now. I was on a juicing kick for awhile, but it fell by the wayside. I don't know why - I loved it. I was probably just lazy. You are inspiring me to get back to it. Happy Mother's Day!
