Some of you know I’m in the process of trying to lose some weight. About 20 or 30 pounds, to be precise. Or, really, to get back to the weight I was about 8 years ago.
I have made some progress, I know, but the watershed moment occurred this morning.
I tried on one of my suits, purchased back when I had first lost weight. Just four or five months ago, I couldn’t fasten the waistband of the trousers, and the jacket felt so tight across the chest and shoulders that it impeded movement. In short, I felt like an overstuffed kishke in this suit. Good thing I don’t have to wear them every day.
But this morning I tried it on. Snug in the waistband, but livable. The jacket is a touch tight, as well. I can’t button it. But that overstuffed feeling is not there.
I am wearing my “thin” suit!
Hope springs eternal.
