It's ironic... don't ya think?
I have no idea why I got it into my brain that I should try them on last night especially since I gained so much weight on vacation but I did and I couldn't go to sleep without trying them on. I pulled them out of the closet and this time they went on with ease and I was able to button and zip them. Awesome, until I looked in the mirror and realized that the thighs were too big. I think Jen would be proud of me to know that this is an accomplishment (realizing that the pants don't need to be of the MC Hammer variety) but I was mad that I missed the opportunity to wear these pants again. Especially considering I went out and bought a new pair of jeans to take on the trip! Bollocks!
So, when I went to my meeting today I told this story and one of my meeting mates said to me "you can't be mad about not fitting in them, can you?" and I was a little taken back by the question. It wasn't really the question but the fact that I actually didn't know how to answer it. I mean, I know that I am not mad that I've lost the weight! This might take some more thinking...
In the meantime, in case you missed my new pumpkin recipe you should check it out. It is super yummy and only 3PP per huge serving!! Even Dan likes it (and he generally hates sweets!)
While you're checking things out don't forget that you can still donate to my fundraising campaign. I have already raised some money but need to raise even more. The donations are tax deductible because the money is going to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) which is an "A" rated charity. Please take a minute to donate and feel free to share the link/information with others! http://www.active.com/donate/illinoisLV12/LV_JMcElro
