    Just had a fabulous time reading your journal from January or so (thought of going back to the beginning of my hiatus but...) and feeling renewed and STARVING! Funny how your entries have always done that for me.

    Trying something new today... and by new it's somewhere between a milestone and something that I shouldn't have waited for. So I've been wearing 42W pants that have been way to big for the past at least 4 months. Last weekend I decided to blindy buy 38W pants (the first time since... grade 10? that i would own pants that start with a 3) but I let them sit for a week or so. hadn't tried them on or anything. Put them on this morning and they fit! Slightly snug in some points but other than that they are a win! so lets give these a go for the next few days and see if I can stick with them or if I need to bump up to a 40W. Either way I'm happy at this point

    Yay, ecks. Either way(40 or 38), it's a win, yes? Superduperpeterdhooper. Coll and I are trying to go down a size this month too -- but two sizes. Very cool! That is definitely a milestone. Passing the 42's and the 40's up has got to be fantastic. WTG, ecks!

    Fantastic! It's so great when to see a new number, isn't it? I'll bet the pants will be okay, and if they have cotton they stretch a bit.

    It is a nice feeling. And they seem to be fitting just fine! So far that's 8 inches in pant sizes. I started at a tight 46

    Thanks Brother! It's been a long time coming... I've been staying safe in those big pants for wayy too long!

    Sidebar- the snow is officially gone me thinks... but with that my appetite has increased. Now I'm in the middle of moving right now and can't really grocery shop for more so this is going to be an annoying month... I guess canned fish will be my friend until I'm done moving -_-'

    Your moving, eh? That's great. What are your new roommates like? Hope they are wonderful and primal friendly! But dang, ecks, how long can it take to move your stuff?

    Roommates = parents... no where near primal friendly... But it's a necessary step to get myself into school. Joy! -_-'
