... and then I was down 60 pounds!

I don't know about you, but Christmas and then New Year's Eve and then 2013 totally surprised me.  Not in a bad way, but they flew by in a blur.  I mean a real live, honest-to-goodness blur.  Like I can't believe today is the 5th.  Like I thought it was just (American) Thanksgiving.  Like did we really go to Vermont and back and it's already 2013?  And most of all, like I thought I weighed somewhere around 196 and then today when I got on the scale, I was already down to 190.  OHMYWORD, I HAVE LOST SIXTY POUNDS!
