Mill stones around my neck, looking for mile stones of progress.

I had one of those moments where I was confronted with reality and it really sucked.
I was trying on life jackets and found I couldn't fit into size XL. So, I saw the truth, and it was not pretty.

The jacket fit great everywhere except my gut. They don't make a XXL in the model I wanted so I had to go for xxl in a model I didn't like so much.

The one I like will fit great if I can lose 4 inches of girth. Oh well. I have something to aim for, and I can reward myself with the life jacket when I fit it.
