About 6 months ago I got rid of the last pair of 'skinnier' jeans in my closet. I said, "Who are you kidding? You'll never fit into those again!" But, after 2 months of dieting I had to go to the store and buy a smaller pair of jeans! I don't want this to be a diet blog, because then it will also be about getting fatter if I stop dieting, but it's been so much fun to notice small changes as I diet. We've been doing a family diet, which has been very motivating. Doing it together has kept us on target.
While Ed and I have both lost 15-18 pounds, I have been more enthusiastic about it. I love looking better and feeling better. Ed doesn't mind being thinner, but he misses the 'old days' where we used to eat everything in sight whenever we felt like it. He's afraid those days are gone forever. I'm afraid they might not be!
