A less-weighty matter

So, I had hoped to get down to below 200lbs before our vacation, but didn't quite make it. Then, I had hoped to only gain 5lbs while we were on vacation and ended up gaining 9lbs when I checked on the Saturday following our return. But, I got back into the full diet and exercise swing, and The Fates took pity on me. I lost all that I gained over vacation in a week's time. I'm still not under 200lbs, but VERY close.

My clothes are all too big for me, including clothes that I bought a month ago. So, I decided that I deserved two new pairs of interview-appropriate pants. The Fates again rewarded me. I purchased two pairs of size 16 trousers today and two size 14-16 tops to go with them. While this is still larger than I would like to be, size 16 clothing has been a stranger to my body for nearly a decade.

Now, to resist the tempation to indulge in a celebratory eating binge! ;)

Woot! Congrats on the progress. Vacations always make me nervous in that regard. We are going away to YMCA camp for Mother's day. Lots of great activities, but the downside is that at all the meals, there are lots of things I shouldn't eat and I'll be really hungry. :)
