Just a little pre-Father’s Day picture. This is a picture of my dad this morning:
I don’t ever remember seeing my dad in jeans (“dungarees” as his mother likes to say). So, it was a fun surprise to see him in them today. He’s funny, though, ’cause he was all like casual about it. Like he was quietly waiting to see if I’d notice. I’m pretty sure if I’d done what he has, I’d be hollerin’ “WOO-HOO! Check me out!”
What did he do?
He lost over 100 pounds, that’s what!
He told me he used to weigh 351 pounds and now he weighs 226.
This is a “before” picture:
Hopefully, he’s going to do a guest post for me about this soon. He can fill you in on the whole story.
But meanwhile I’d love to mention a couple of things that he has done recently…
This winter he got us all outside to build a snowman.
He went sledding!
I think that’s a great way to celebrate!
He told me a couple of weeks ago that he’s running a little bit when he goes out for his walk!
I don’t think that’s a great way to celebrate ;), but to each his own.
My mom wanted to add that before he lost all that weight, they tried to have a garden but that it got overrun with weeds because he just couldn’t keep up.
Did you notice that garden behind him in the first two pictures?
All his doing!
Mom also said that she did not have to shovel AT ALL this winter. He did it lickety-split!
My dad likes to say he lost a small person 🙂 .
Maybe he can find him at the Weight Watchers meeting 😉 .
P.S. My mom needs to do some modeling too. She’s also lost a phenomenal amount of weight!
P.P.S. I know I sorta promised a shorter post for today. I tried. But hey, sometimes life happens. Besides, it’s not that long, is it?
