Why has my waist deserted me!?

First let me say that I was looking at old pictures on the computer and came across one of Russell and me and his parents in the mountains about 5 years ago. I was SKINNY, Russell was thin and so was his dad. Russell's mother never changes...she is probably the only woman I have ever known who stays the same size...........forever! I really don't get that.

Today I made a little retail therapy trip to D*ll*rd's to window shop buy a couple little items I had spied on the sale rack. Today they were an additional 40% off of the 75% off price! You just have to say that is a good deal! I got all the above plus another shirt for a birthday gift for under, drum roll please, $50!
Now I needed the retail therapy because I've been in the doldrums for the past few days. What I call low grade depression. Sometimes when I get like this I go to bed, o.k. I did yesterday. So today I decided to do something crazy, like shop! Yes, I do count my blessings too!
Anyhow, the point of all this is.....L*z Cl*iborne jeans come all the way to your real waist. I seem to have lost my real waist if I ever truly had one! The were too tight....and they were so cheap! But they'll have to go back!
And I will go and do sit ups now. I wonder if shoes are on sale?

I'm sure that the "lost waist syndrome" must be some horrid and very contagious disease! It seems like it is the general complaint of all friends my age. Perhaps medicine should investigate it more closely.

Anyway....what a greal deal you got. Have a good weekend with all those sore muscles from the situps.

Oh my gosh, how I can relate! After struggling for over 2 years to lose weight, the only spot left to lose is in the waist department. To get things that fit there, I end up at least 1 size (sometimes 2) bigger and then have to pay more to have the clothes altered! UGH!!!

I've tagged you for a meme that you might enjoy. At least I hope you do. It's sort of different from other ones I've done so I hope it might cheer you up that I've chosen YOU!!! lol :D
