Celebrating weight gain

Since I voted early and couldn't get a sticker today, I decided to do something I haven't done in a while - give blood. I happened upon a volunteer directing people to the room in the student center and made a spur-of-the-moment decision.

In the 20 minutes or so I waited, I realized this is one very clear, very good thing about gaining weight. The nurse told me I "just squeaked by" at my current weight, which is NOT true. But regardless, I hadn't been able to donate blood for a long time. It felt like something to celebrate.

How do you celebrate being at a healthy weight?
