Today, I went out and ran errands in a pair of jeans that I don’t think I’ve been able to button for the past two years. (I mean, it’s possible that I had some sort of strange skinny day in that time span and just didn’t know it and so didn’t try on those jeans, but how likely is that, really?) So I think it’s fair to say that I have – without a doubt for the jeans don’t lie – lost the weight of my father’s death and my tenure year – or if not yet the weight then at least the increased size. (See, I know that I put on 20-25 pounds over the past two years, and I’ve only lost 15, but yet, these jeans go on even though I’m 10 pounds from where I was the last time that these jeans went on. The only thing I can think is that exercise is making some sort of difference in size vs. weight or something.)
How do I feel about this?
