The summer of 1999 was very special in so many ways.
I had shed 30 pounds thru Weight Watchers and I had finally gotten rid of all the pregnancy weight I had put on.
My beloved sister made the same journey, also thru WW, and she shed so much of her body weight it is remarkable. And, she has pretty much kept it off all these years.
We were so happy, both of us. It was so fun to go shopping, so fun to be skinny again. To be pretty again, really.
We had the cutest little kids, and we spent the entire summer in the summer house in Närpes, Finland. As I remember it now, 13 years later, it was a very great and super good summer all around.
We did count our points religiously, though.
I do remember that we had a few "eat whatever you want days".
But mostly, I just remember how good it all was, the weather, the family, the kids...
I am probably a bit nostalgic, but so be it...
And that concludes today's "look-back". Ah, I admit it that it makes me both nostalgic and sentimental.
I hope you ALL have a SUPER Tuesday!!
