Joe and I are having a weight contest. I needed to lose 12 pounds and he needed to gain at least 12. I'm not going to be coy anymore. I was 132 and he had dropped to 148. There, now you know.
Week 1: Susan lost 2 pounds. Joe lost 2 pounds.
Week 2: Susan lost 1 pound. Joe lost 1 pound. (If you haven't noticed, Joe is moving in the wrong direction here).
Week 3: Susan lost 4 pounds! That puts me at 125. I was 125 when I got pregnant with Jack 5 years ago! Whooooo hooooo! Funny thing is, I still have the hips. That's alright, curves are womanly.
Now for Joe's good news: Joe gained 5 pounds! He has gained back all that he lost recently and put on 2 more. He needs to bulk up before the Kidney Doctor will put him on chemo meds (the next step in his regimen).
I am happy for both of us and can't wait to spend that $100 on new clothes, 'cuz "mama needs a new pair of shoes", and pants, and shirts, and socks, and of course a PURSE! Hello?! I better win this thing. I just looked in my closet and noticed that I have clothes from when I started teaching 7 years ago! I have clothes from Student Teaching! I have clothes from college (reeek, reeeek, reeek *creepy Psycho music)!!!
