I wish I'd lost the weight sooner, of course, but I'm honestly not sure I could have -- things have been so crazy for the last few years between having the babies and starting at UIC and moving and all. I think it took finally having a relatively quiet stretch, as well as not working, to let me have sufficient mental space to concentrate on the effort to lose weight.
Anyway, enough about how I look; I'm really absolutely sick of the diet talk, at the same time that I feel like I have to document it, for myself or anyone else struggling with weight issues. Argh.
Here's an adorable photo of someone else -- I'm guessing this was taken by my second cousin Rozanne, since it's a photo of her husband Mark and their super-cute daughter, Anjali (Kavi's third cousin, if I'm calculating right). They had a tough time getting a baby of their own, so I'm doubly pleased that they produced such a gorgeous one. And her outfit!
