My pants are falling off of me

I'd weighed myself last week and was up 2.5lbs. My cycle's been so irregular, I wasn't sure if I picked an ill week to weigh. I have these weighing rules: morning, no food or water, no clothes, preferably after a BM, and not the week before my period. Some of those are easier to control than others.
So I weighed myself again on Monday and was down those 2.5 and I raised that to 3.5, so I am over the 20lbs lost mark since Thanksgiving. In fact, in about 10lbs, I'll be at my fighting weight of when I began dating P almost three years ago. Although far from thin, I felt rather sexy at that weight. And it means that I should still have some suitable clothing around when I get there. I didn't dress in style three years ago, so it won't matter for now, either.
As this weight has come off, I have just allowed it to happen. Most of the work was done by the thyr*xine, so I can't really take the credit, except walking had certainly helped since I'd plateaued in June after lowering my dosage. Now I contemplate having goals concerning the loss, which would add an element of pressure.
However, I sure would like it to be 30lbs by this Thanksgiving. Just for old time's sake. It would certainly cap of a year of big changes and give a positive spin to it all.
PS - got a subject line "????" email from Glen last night, but no call. I thought he'd gotten the message, but I'll have to be more direct about the not wanting the relationship thing. With the changing weather, I've had such sinus headaches for a few days that I haven't wanted to tackle much.

Talk is cheap. Use Yahoo! Messenger to make PC-to-Phone calls. Great rates starting at 1¢/min.

Congrats on the weight loss!! The only weight I've been loosing these days is from teeth falling out of my head... I'm so lovely.

Pants falling off is a good thing!

I think I'd send an email back to Glenn with the subject line "!!!!".

It seems to me that's just where we want your pants. Just a friendly remark now, take no offense!

P always said he really liked lingerie... on the floor. I'd say pants apply, too.

Congratulations on the weight loss! That always makes me feel better. Somehow, somewhere over the last 2 months I have managed to lose 12 pounds without trying, it is kind of strange. I usually have to do the diet pill thing, that isn't good for you I know.

You do have to realize that he is a MAN, and they just don't GET IT sometimes. Maybe he is one of those you have to hit in the head in order for him to GET IT. Good luck.

I hope this link works -- don't remember how I was lucky enough to stumble across it...
Went thru some old photos in preparation for embarassing a friend at her 40th B/D party -- I found one of myself in a swimsuit about 5 yrs/35 lbs ago which is undeniably HOT! (now if only I could get back to that point!)
But I must continually remind myself that it's about being HEALTHY, not a # on the scales!
