Losing Weight: Pure Vanity or Money Saver?

It all started this summer when I realized that I only fit into a fraction of the clothes I owned. I hadn't worn them since moving to Vinalhaven two years earlier (and it's really not a trouser kind of place) and I clearly was unable to wear them. I had apparently had some weight sneak up on me.

Now I'm not (at least I don't think) what anyone would call fat but my BMI was 25 and I was winded going for a hike.
