Big Pigs

I dreamt my guinea pigs somehow grew as big as beagles. They were really cute, but slightly more dangerous (biiiig teeth) and really hard to carry around.

I am such a pathetic 80s music fan. VH1's streaming radio station wouldn't let me log on for weeks so today, frustrated by not being able to get my 80s music fix (their I Love The 80s station is really good), I set up a new username and password. And now I'm happy with my Flock of Seagulls, Love and Rockets, Midnight Oil, Culture Club... (Well, that's what the last few songs were, like all of those too.) Yes, I am HAPPY!

Its working

Well, I know everbody says "Ignore your scale" but I really need to have a clue what is "going on" or else I sometimes lose perspective. Anyway, there is good news! The scale needle finally did move (last week) and it's moving again in fact. I seem to have lost 15 pounds since the start of the year. According to the program I use for tracking, my BMI is almost out of the "moderate health risk" area and will soon be in the healthy area again.

ADDENDUM. Sheesh, I just went and tried on this one pair of jeans as a "joke" since they haven't fit in forever (I bought them skin-tight) and somehow they slipped right on. I don't know how it's possible, since there is plenty of lumpy plumpness left, but hey, I'm not complaining at fitting into jeans I bought 6 years ago.

ADDENDUM 2. And now to make me really confused, Caleb just called me to say there's some rumor going around his work, carried by some coworkers who were at his party Saturday, that I'm pregnant and wore really nice maternity clothes. I actually heard some weird whisper of this at the party (pretty sure somebody said goodbye to me with "Good luck for you and the baby") but ignored it. Ugh. Well, obviously my "baby" in front hasn't gone down in size any. *hits head on desk*

Pants! I have pants!

OK, well, I just confirmed that my scale can't be lying: I've broken THE PANTS BARRIER. Yes, I opened my pants drawer and somehow ALL of them fit. I'm not saying they're all hanging loose on me -- I buy my jeans tight to start with -- but damn, I can zip all of them up and they're actually wearable. My shorts fit too! Probably the biggest shock of all these pants fitting is me having no problem getting in to this pair of green jeans I know for a fact I got in like 1990! WTF? Theyr'e 34-34 or something, which is smaller than any other pair I own, but somethhing about the fit means they slip on. These are jeans I only kept because I wanted to have them to test if I lost weight. So WEIRD!
