Texas mom of two Jordan Kirkham was overjoyed recently when her husband Daniel was able to pick her up in the pool.
According to TODAY, Kirkham has been on a weight loss journey since January 2015. Since that time, she's lost about 140 pounds, down from over 300. This was the first time her husband was able to lift her up.
"I haven’t been picked up since I was a kid, so when he did that with no hesitation, no struggle, just picking me up, I almost cried," Kirkham told TODAY. "I felt light as air. I was over the moon I was so happy."
That's why she decided to document the occasion. Though she was a little self-conscious about her excess skin (which is normal when one has lost over 100 pounds), Kirkham decided to post the photo to Instagram. It quickly went viral.
