today i was measured. a total of 5 inches lost! various places, of course. i will not mention the specifics … i am shy like that. i am keeping this post short, i have a loaf of my homemade rosemary bread in the oven, homemade noodles for my sun-dried tomato pasta waiting in the pot to be boiled, and a husband waiting to play wii with me. i had to share the good news!!
