Was rancid, now size 4/6

Mimi had her all spotlight Jenny presentation yesterday during which she went on and on, some more, about all the baby weight she lost and how disgusting she felt when she was pregnant. Yes, disgusting. Or, as she puts it...


So rancid she didnΓÇÖt want her husband to see her, ever.

"I had a towel on in the tub. IΓÇÖm not lying, I promise you! You think I would let Nick see me looking rancid like that?"

Rancid, of course, is the exact opposite of what she is now that sheΓÇÖs lost 70 pounds and is allegedly down to a size 4/6.

Wait, what happened to 30 pounds?

No, no. ItΓÇÖs 70 pounds now. 40 in water weight that came off right when Roc and Roe were born, and 30 pounds in diet and exercise.  Because I guess 30 pounds just wasnΓÇÖt impressive enough, they had to change the messaging - the message being: you are ΓÇ£rancidΓÇ¥ after you have your baby until Mimi and Jenny come along and help you ΓÇ£Make It HappenΓÇ¥.

Mimi looks great, no doubt. IΓÇÖd like to see how much Spanx she has under there but letΓÇÖs not get particular with the details. And it also helps that her dress is too big and who isnΓÇÖt flattered by a nightgown but letΓÇÖs not quibble about wardrobe either. Great, healthy, fit, beautiful, all of it, yes, yes, yes, yes. She is.

Size 4/6?

Ask Karl Lagerfeld what he thinks of this size 4/6.

ItΓÇÖs one thing to be proud of what youΓÇÖve accomplished. ItΓÇÖs another to shame what youΓÇÖve accomplished by naming it something else.

But then I see her face. Her face the way it is in this first photo. And I remember, this is my Mimi. How could I possibly ask her to be more, to do more? SheΓÇÖs already given so much.
