Christmas travel

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I'm packing to head for my mother-in-law's, our traditional California Christmas trip. The last time I was on a plane was a year ago for this same trip. It makes me reflect on the changes since then.

I'm 50 pounds lighter. I don't think I will need a seat belt extender on any of these flights. That's a relief.

I get get more clothes into less space in my suitcase. I will be able to take my rolling bag on board this year.

That said, I have way fewer clothes that fit me! I haven't really been shopping much, not wanting to buy a lot of things that I then don't wear for long. But that means not much in the line of clothes that fit. Good thing my MIL has a washing machine!

Exercise clothes were comprise much more of my packed clothing this time. I plan on getting some running in while I'm there, something I couldn't even contemplate a year ago.

I've been pretty much plateaued since July, but I am smaller--the suits I could finally wear then are much too big for me now. I'm pretty happy with where I am.

I just have to figure out what to wear!

    Some fabulous changes!!!
Maybe you'll get some clothes as gifts or get some gift certificates to buy a few things that fit.
