25 Pounds Lighter...
But, here I am in my size 22 shorts (2 full sizes down from what I was barely fitting into in October 2010), my new(ish) shirt (a size down here as well!), and my new "thing under the shirt" (2 full sizes down around)! This time last year, I would have never fit into anything but my shoes! Okay, maybe the socks...but everything else was extremely tight fitting! Another thing to notice, if you really want to study me...is my multi-staged skin colors. My legs? They never tan, even when I try...so they stay that pasty white year-round. My arms are both very tan, my driving arm (the left one) is much darker than the right though and they both have untanned "elbow pits" since I tend to bend at the elbow when resting my arm on the truck door as I drive. Neck up is a variety of shades from "crusty, peeling" skin where the very burnt skin on the back of my neck and ear to the bright pink of new skin where the burnt stuff has sloughed off already. I don't worry too much about "tanning"...cancer risks and all that, but I may try to even things out a bit this Summer, lol.
Well, back to work for me! I have Raspberry bushes to get in the ground and a watering system to install in my planters!
