Waist Not Want Not

So the whole world is pregnant. Okay just about everyone in my world. And the ones who aren't I've been eyeballing them to see when they'll announce. Sure now that it's cool to do it. Where the heck was everyone when I was pregnant?
The comforting factor is that while they are complaining of growing out of their pants, I am too. Except I'm growing the other way. Last night I went shopping and bought three new pairs in a completely smaller size! And they fit great and are comfortable. So now I'm addicted to the way losing weight makes me feel. It's nice to enjoy shopping again.
And sure a part of me wishes that I was able to say I was pregnant too. The original plan was to try our frozen embryos in July 2005. But circumstances change. Plans change accordingly. So if I was married and happy and stable I would jump on the baby making train. But to tell the truth I like how things are now. I loved being pregnant, it had many happy memories for me. Hopefully some day I'll be able to experience them again. For now I am going to love my boy, love myself, love my friends & family and love life, only thinner.
