    I can't drink the way I used to be able to. I went to a dinner party last night and we split two bottles of red among three people (with one abstainer) so that is like 2/3 of a bottle for me. That in pre PB days would have been no big deal. Today I feel like crap and I'm all bloated.

    Bummer. I like wine.

    Last night I went to tango class for the first time in 4 months, and I had trouble dancing because I couldnt take my eyes off how skinny and strong I looked in the full-length mirrors.

    I'm not losing any additional pounds, I'm holding steady, but I think the body re-comp is going on without me.
    There should be a clothing swap section here. Your 8s would fit someone who just came down from 12s. Me, I'm finally starting to leave the 8s behind for my 6s again. The ones at the bottom of the geological nightmare that is my closet.

    I went back to my old jeans and now they're too big! This was before I got huge.

    Yay for tango- even more yay for liking what you see in the mirror! With that strength you'll be able to do a drool-worthy dance- once you can focus on it again

    Bacon mayo? You wouldn't want to use all bacon fat, but replacing part of the olive oil with bacon drippings might be tasty. Or it might be terrible. It is a mystery!
