Aw Congrats!!!! That is awesome. All about feeling better. Honestly keeping it off for 8 years and only creeping up 10lbs isn't terribleLost 10 pounds . On the annoying front....no compliments. I sort of always look pretty thin - so no one says - wow, you look great!). But, I feel better and I'm almost at my low weight (5 more pounds).
I lost it all about 10 years ago and kept it all off for - about 8 years. Then with the move and all kinds of changes - I just let it bounce back up. In fact, I thought I'd look better with a few more pounds (that was a mistake).
Also, just emailed a local CSA that has a food/work trade. My 16 year old said she'd come with me......we'll see. My hope is that it will also teach me a bit about veggie gardening - plus they said they do bulk sales (so I can do some canning).
Hope the food/work trade CSA works out! Sounds lovely.
