I forgot to tell y'all something! I talked with my dissertation chair on Friday about a project we're working on together... anyway, we ended up talking about the conference that I went to at the end of March, and some of my old faculty that I ran into. And my chair said, "I hear that you're looking really good." YAY!!! I'm so glad that 1500 miles away from where I am sitting today, people felt the need to tell my chair that I had lost weight and was looking good. So, slyly, I said, "Yeah, I lost a bit of weight." HA!!! I'm seeing my chair in August at another conference and I can't WAIT to see him. The last time we saw each other was at my graduation just about a year ago... at my heaviest weight. Talk about inspiration! Conferences are like yearly high school reunions for us PhDs. We get together and gossip about each other and then go back to our current departments and gossip about each other even more. I'm glad I have something like August's conference pushing me to lose more by the end of the summer so I look smoking at the conference :) Not to mention that I'll need to buy a new suit because all of mine will be way too big at that point!
