So I’m looking onlline at sleds because I want to take my son sledding for the first time. You know what’s unfortunate? Having to look at the dimensions and weight limits for each one. Weight limits, ok. Dimensions, though? I have to make sure it’s wide enough for me.

I know I have to lose this weight. I can’t be an embarrassment to my baby as he gets older. He won’t want Mommy to go sledding with him because all the other kids have skinny mommies. It may sound crazy, but that’s my motivation: I don’t want my son to be ashamed of me.

So next year, when we go sledding, Mommy will fit better in the sled. But this year, Mommy is going to burn some calories going up the hill over and over to slide down, fat and all!
