A nice little pick-me-up today: I went to buy some new clothes and had to go down a size in jeans to a 32. Last year I lost 30 pounds thanks to diet (Weight Watchers Online, i.e., “Forget Atkins, Just East Sensibly and Control Your Portions”) and exercise (riding my bike to work), and went from a size 36 waist to, now, a 32. It feels good. My only complaint is that the weight didn’t all come off my middle, which still needs work. Maybe in several months I’ll be posting about 30?
