A few weeks ago, my stepson had to attend a funeral, to which he wore dress pants. After the funeral, I took his pants in along with mine to be drycleaned. A week later, when I picked up the dry cleaning, it had slipped my mind that I had a pair of his pants along with mine. This morning, as I got dressed, I thought it was odd that my pants felt a bit snug. Then I realized that I had just put on a pair of pants belonging to my nineteen-year-old stepson, and they really fit ok.

I've now lost five full inches off my waist. Over the last three years I've gone from size 40 to 35.

More importantly, I just had my annual physical, and my blood chemistry has improved to the point that my doctor thinks it likely that, if I continue with my healthier habits of exercise and a vastly increased intake of fruits and vegetables, I may be able to stop taking cholesterol medication in the very near future.

Yay for me.
