First, I bought a pair of pants in a smaller size. More importantly, I wore them all day today and they are not too tight, even after dinner. And these pants are the same brand of the bigger sizes that I have been wearing, so it is not due to a different cut, or style.
The second change is due to a different cut and style!
More travel planned for next weekend, so my weight control efforts will either be suspended, or not. I can never predict how it will go, when I am out of my routine. I don't know whether it is the planets aligning, or my body getting used to whatever "stage of life" I am in, but I am really not having much difficulty in holding to my eating plan. Which is a relief, because I am overdue for a change!
