Well, I tried my hand at combining my two blogs and it just wasn’t working out. It also wasn’t keeping me honest about what I was eating and (not) doing in the way of exercise. So, I’ll keep my regular blog for knitting, simple living and frugality, and I’m baaack to food blogging over here:). I missed it, to be honest.
Anyway…so, to “The Moment.” Here’s a pic from our Christmas musical last year:
Notice that I’m already looking a little uncomfortable in my top (unlike my friend Katie, who’s just fine). So, I’m about ten pounds heavier this year. And I am noticeably uncomfortable in my top. And, like last year, I have a solo. And, it’s during a pretty rocking song. And, I can’t really move that well. So, I’m kind of humiliated that I’m having this issue. This year is a wash…there’s nothing I can do to make myself more comfortable today and tomorrow. But it won’t be that way next year, I can tell you for sure.
I had a similar moment when I lost my weight initially at 13. I couldn’t fit into a dress I liked when I was getting ready for church. I’m having that moment again. It’s mortifying to stand in front of a couple thousand people in a top that’s too tight.
So, I’m back…not necessarily with my tail between my legs, I don’t think, but with new resolve.
