OK, some of the younger ones will have to ask their great-grandmothers what that means (or attend a performance of Thoroughly Modern Millie), but it's my way of saying:
I'VE LOST 23 POUNDS AS OF TODAY!!!!!
I was able to fit into a really cute Ultrasuede skirt in a very pale green, that I've never had on my body (other than trying it on, shaking my head, and struggling to get it off again without tearing the fabric or stitching). Today, it slid on loosely, and I felt just great!
