I had a huge meal that usually bloats the daylights out of me yesterday so that mere pound up is better than it looks.

I was invited to participate in a program in Europe to present my thesis for two weeks next month so I have to be mindful of the clothes I need to take and fitting things.

So close to meeting my mini-goal, but still not quite!

Jschwab, that's exciting about the trip to present your thesis and quite the honor! If you need some temporary nice clothes, check out Gwynnie Bee (no affiliation yadda yadda). I had a nice event I needed to go to earlier in the Spring and I almost rented something from them until I found something in my closet. You can subscribe and then cancel after one month or just rent pieces. So if you need a suit for a presentation or a dress for an event, it's a good option. It's not cheap, but it's better than buying comparably nice clothes that you're going to wear once. Sometimes consignments stores are a good option, too, but I never find nice clothes there, just casual stuff.

Citygirl8, thanks for the ideas!!! Gwynnie bee has such gorgeous stuff! I'm more worried about whether certain standbys will be too big by that time or not. Since I spend most of my time at the pool, my wardrobe skews heavily towards shorts and T-shirts! Have to figure out something a little more pulled-together.

I'm up, but I'm not mad about it - I went a little too hard and I wasn't feeling great. Backing off and trying again with more of a focus on health.

Hi Dustpuppy! Good to see you. I feel like I've been tackling the same three pounds over and over. Then I inch down a pound and do it again. Just when I think I've seen the last of something it comes back out of nowhere. I'm trying hard to focus on the (very) small downward trend.
