One area reunion has did a makeover on me is my self esteem. I admit I felt like I was ugly. At the best I saw myself as a plain Jane. Reunion has opened my eyes to see myself in a different light. My daughter looks very much like me. We have been asked if we are sister's. I am 15 years older than her so it makes me feel young that someone could think we are sisters. I have let her answer that and she always says that I am her birthmom.

It's hard to keep the bad self esteem because if I look in the mirror and think that I am ugly or plain jane then so is my daughter. I just think she is cute! Pretty beautiful if you ask me. She has the most stunning eyes that I have ever seen.

Last weekend, I hit my 50 lb loss and got into the pants that I bought when I went shopping with Izzy!!

I am sure reunion hasn't just helped my self image of what I look like but I like to think it's done some fixing up for my self worthy to know my daughter. Reunion isn't easy but it sure beats not knowing her.

Congrats on your weight loss! I'm headed that way myself...well, once I start I guess. I think extra weight can be used as a shield, and when you get into a better state of mind, you can begin shedding that protective layer. That's my theory anyway. :)
