Happy holidays friends!
I’ve been home in Massachusetts with family since Christmas Eve, and it’s been lovely. I was able to spend time with family and friends, eat eat eat, and most importantly, get up close and personal with the love of my life, Leonardo DiCaprio, in the Wolf of Wall Street, on Christmas day. He and Jonah Hill were fantastic, to be sure, but it was really the editing of the movie that was most impressive.
As I write this, I’m on the train back to Manhattan so that I can celebrate New Year’s Eve in the city with friends. I’m currently thinking about doling out an obscene amount of money for one of those fancy club experiences — the ones with open bar, a dress code, and no shortage of smug. It’s either that or bar hopping, which will come with its own set of cover charges, but a little less claustrophobia. All I want is to wear sequins. I’ll let you know how it goes. Here are a few photos from Mom’s house, with some snapshots of her slim self thrown in at the end. She made it to her goal of 170 by Christmas, which is nothing short of amazing. Forty pounds gone. She looks so happy, so healthy. A true beauty.
Remember that this is where she started:

[For new readers, here’s a flashback: I’m putting my mom on a diet, here is the plan I designed for her, and here are her weekly updates: week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5, week 6, week 7, week 8, week 9, week 10, week 11, week 12, week 13, week 14, week 15, week 16, week 17, week 18, week 19.]
Happy New Year, all! What are you up to tonight?
