Last night, I openly and unabashedly solicited compliments on my thinning form. I asked my sisters “don’t I look thinner? don’t you think running is working for me?” They concurred, and I didn’t even have to twist their arms. But then later, the best kind of compliment – the unsolicited kind – came my way: “wow! your butt is smaller!” I said “ooooh! I know! isn’t it great?!” And then proceeded to do a very Karen-from-Mean-Girls type thing: I jutted my left hip and cheek back, and rubbed my hand over my butt. It is smaller! Yea me!

I know most of us might go “woohoo! new clothes!!!” But I just bought a whole new summer wardrobe, which we only do about once every year, and don’t know what I’ll do when my clothes no longer fit, since I’m saving for a sweet vacation and won’t have the to get any new clothes.
Hmmmmmm. When I thought about losing weight, I didn’t figure this part into the equation! What a wonderful, if perplexing, predicament!
