My closets have been attacked by some kind of bug that is making my clothes shrink. This nasty bug has been at this deed for about two or more years now. It seems like each time I try something on I can tell the bug has been at it again.
Yes, my weight has grown. But, my body is changing its shape. It is taking on the dimensions of an old lady - rounded in most of the wrong places - like waist and hips. My once flat stomach is rounded like I am carrying around a small melon.
Do I really want to go on a strict diet - "NO" I enjoy cooking and eating what I cook. Also at my age - losing 10 pounds would require 6 months of dieting...now tell me (you women of my age group) how many of you want to diet for 6 months. I know I don't.
So what did I do....I cleared out the closet of the clothes that are too tight . I am freeing up those hangers for some new clothes. I discussed this with my sweet man (who told me yesterday to get me some "fat lady" clothes). Of course, he was teasing me as I am not that big. He said go shopping and get what ever you need or want.
Now here is the kicker, I hate to shop for clothes. I detest most of the styles that are available now. In my eyes, the designs are for the younger generation (not that they look that great even on them). Nor do I want some "granny" looking garment. Yes, I am in the granny and great-granny age bracket as I am nearing the 7th decade era - well in the three years.
I suppose I could just stick to jeans and shirts - those I can find that I like. However, I would like several nice pants with matching/coordinating jacket. I wear pants to church as I get so cold - regardless of the time of the year. Also would like one dress or suit - for that once in awhile I would need it.
So if you are out shopping and you see a lady with blond hair, muttering to her self, in the size 16 area be nice to her ...because that could be me!
