Mickey's going to Disneyworld!

I'm sure you're thinking, "Huh? Mickey already lives at Disneyworld." I'm talking about my shorts here. I got these shorts in the mid-90s when my girls were little. I've had them packed away in The Box for years and years. Well, when I found out we were going to Disneyworld in May, I've been really hoping to lose enough weight to fit back into them. I'm happy to say I can. They're still a bit tight, but they're wearable. And if I lose anything between now and the time we leave on the 14th, they'll fit even better. So yay for Mickey!

I was so close to hitting 60 pounds lost this morning. I'm only two-tenths of a pound away. I probably would have hit it if I had waited an hour, but I was hungry and had to eat. I'm hoping to be there tomorrow or soon after. My goal is to lose 74 pounds, but recently I've made a short term goal to be at 60 pounds by our trip. Today I managed to squeeze into another pair of denim shorts I've been saving. These are 11s, which might sound huge to some of you, but it's a big deal to me. I haven't fit into this size in over 12 years and after wearing 1x, it's a pretty big deal for me. My goal is to get back down into my 9s. The Mickey shorts are labeled as medium, so I'm guessing they're somewhere between a 10 and an 11 size.

It's hard to believe our trip is only 10 days away now. I wasn't super excited about going at first, but as time has gone by, the more I'm looking forward to it. Let's just hope I don't eat too much and those Mickey shorts rip right off my body -- ACK!
