I decided to take advantage of the sun
and I put on my new walking shoes and I took to the streets.
I wove my way past melting snowmen with their carrot noses and eyes made of stones...
I dodged puddles and was snug and warm in my down jacket
I forgot to wear my sunglasses so squinting was actioned when facing into the rays.
Lots of folks were out too...
it might be a result of cabin fever
after all that ice and snow kept us huddled by the home fires.
I wandered without a route in mind and just let my feet guide me on..
I happened upon a nearby shop which beckoned...
magazines, books and an assortment of cosmetics and potions...
I have many friends who are using this on their hair and giving it rave reviews...
not to be left behind I am on the band wagon.
Wispy hairs and curly frizzies can be tamed
sheen and glossy locks are the other perks.
With the snow almost a distant memory and the sunny sky today
I felt a sense of lightness
maybe it was the invigorating walk,
maybe it was the vitamin D.
I attribute the bounce in my step to my new and not worn out walking shoes.
It could be also because I have lost a few pounds
and don't go thinking that I am looking for them
far from it
I want them gone for good
stay away and don't come back!
I pulled out my old scale awhile ago and was stunned to read the number
I did a double take
I mean, after the winter a few pounds might creep up, but not this many.
I am a hopeless dieter
hampers weight loss
so I get very discouraged...
Look at this sentence...
it seduced me into buying this book!
while I do not want to be a stick insect
I would like to reduce
I hope that there are a few gems inside...
I'll have to find out how much that is....
I'd love to lose 20 pounds...
could they be talking to me?
Perhaps I am the target audience!
My jeans are not fitting well anymore
the spandex has gone on strike
overworked and not a holiday in sight..
it's lost it's oomph
probably weakened because I stretched it beyond it's limits
and it's exhausted...
How long are jeans meant to last anyhow?
do they have a shelf life?
a best before date?
I want new jeans
with spandex that works
jeans that flatter
and don't make me look fatter
than I am...
I'll treat myself to a pair when I lose at least 10 pounds
that could be my reward....
I wonder how many pounds I need to shed to go from a size 12 to a size 10...
I ask you
is it possible
for an hourglass figure
who is counting the hours 'til turning 56
who is seriously height challenged
find a pair of stylish jeans
that rock her world?
I hope so...
What kind of jeans should I buy
and do you have any weight loss strategies or tips for me?
I know there are some savvy slimmers out there
the Hostess needs your advice.
