Last week we had a wonderful visit from my in-laws. I love my mother- and father-in-law. And I can't blame them for my weight gain; sure there was extra food around but I didn't have to eat it!
We went out to eat four times in less than a week. So generous! So caloric. My MIL also brought a cooler of food (steaks, chicken), a huge bag of homemade scramble, two loaves of pumpkin bread, two types of scones, a few dozen muffins, a large tray of peanut butter chocolate bars, and a delicious coffee cake.
What can I say? She says "I love you" with food; so do I.
And tonight we attended a dessert auction fundraiser.
All in all, I think gaining only two pounds can be considered a success!
Besides, my "skinny jeans" from a couple of months ago are slipping on and off without me touching the zipper or button. This is a nice, if expensive, problem to have.
Unfortunately, I can't really brag about it because now I really wear the size I've been telling people I wear. Similarly I can't brag too much about my weight loss because I weigh what my driver's license says I weigh. Time for updated lies, I guess!
