so I am up again today, and I remind myself that women who are put on metabolic wards lose weight, apparently even if it is TTOM or they are in the early stages of menopause. Although I have not actually seen a study that shows this precisely.
Had to pick up some scrubs for the DD and ran across a dress I have always wanted. It is really a Christmas party dress, princess lines, emerald green, from Coldwater Creek. Could never bring myself to pay the $125 (at the time)price and kept saying "when I lose weight, I will get it" well I was at Goodwill for heavens sake, it was $7.99 and in a size 16, slightly snug but wearable fit. I will be too small for it by the time Christmas rolls back around, but I am thinking my new belt, and new black boots, and my denim jacket and I can wear it to the party we have to go to the first weekend of March. Hope it doesn't get too warm to wear it. I also got a peach linen skirt, Talbots, for $4.29. It will go perfectly with the new top I got that is a deep peach/salmon color, again the belt and the denim jacket.
A denim jacket is almost a uniform here in Nashville. We don't dress all country like the stars, but a denim jacket, and a pair of nice boots are essential here.
