On Bringing Sexy Back...
And Other Pasttimes Around the Home...

So first, dear reader, let me upload the fantastic photos of the new bathroom as promised. As someone mentioned earlier, yes, it is quite the--hmmm--"bitch" to keep clean, but only because my dog is mostly white haired and loves to spend his days apparently lying on the floor in there... Be that as it may, however, I love the new colors as--if I had the wherewithal and gumption to have taken some "before" photos, all you would have seen was white walls, white linoleum, white ceiling... Very blah... Presenting my "Sexy Back" bathroom:





In keeping with that theme (sexy, not... ya know, "bland bathrooms"...) imagine my surprise when I slipped on a pair of size 36 jeans... comfortably! Just slightly over a year since I started my "I-can't-believe-this-is-a-diet" diet, I've gone done from a tight size 42 to a comfortable 36, am now on the last notch on my size 44 belt (meaning for the first time in... FOREVER... I have to buy SMALLER clothes!!), AND, feeling deliriously optimistic, I also put on my ARMY T-shirt today and...

IT FITS!!!

All this, and I haven't lifted a weight or kept from eating something I really wanted...

It's amazing what you can do when you exert a little self control, you know? I'm almost giddy about going to a doctor just to get weighed to see how much poundage I've actually lost... [Knock on wood...]

Maybe I'll just buy a scale at Wal-Mart or something...

Something to go with my sexy new bathroom... and my sexy new waistline...

Wow, Ja... your bathroom looks wonderful! You did a great job. And by the way, I did happen to notice a slimmer Ja at our Christmas get-together. But, let me just add that you are a good looking man... and always have been... so, fat or skinny, you'll always be handsome in my eyes!! LOL
Love ya lots!

I'm glad that you and Rich were able to come to a common ground and de...oh, who am I kidding? You decided the whole decor if I know you (and I do) and it looks great! The black floor works well, too.
