ever so slowly but the good news is that 6 pounds have been shed.
I am feeling much better wearing pants. I now have what I can only all breathing room!
The doughy muffin top is looking much firmer and that dreaded back fat is disappearing.
So why would I want to dress like the Goodyear Blimp?
I'll tell you why...
I do not do cold, chilly, or freezing at all well. I love to be warm and cozy. Perhaps that explains my love for all things cashmere and why I am usually wearing some kind of scarf around my neck.
I needed to buy a coat as my car and seat heaters used to keep me warm!
Walking has it's benefits but it does expose one to the elements of nature, and she can be quite cool and frosty.
I bought this coat online from Land's End. It has some great features like the fleece lined pockets, a two way zipper, faux fur on the hood and down fill throughout. If you live in a climate such as we have here in the Pacific Northwest you might consider buying one of these...as an advocate of warmth and comfort while facing those inevitable dips in the Celsius this one get's my seal of approval and it comes in a variety of colours.
You can see it here.
I have linked to the Canadian site so if you are not in Canada go to Land's End.com.
My feet get cold too so I purchased some chill chasing sox and tights...
tunic top / dress
in a butterscotch shade
quite the departure from my usual palette
cheap as chips
will be worn with tights
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.

Sarah over at My Yellow House warmed my heart with her recent post.
Go over and visit
she has such a way with words.
as you gather round the hearth
snug and safe
enjoy the warmth and be grateful
for what you have.
Remembrance Day is this Friday
I hope that you will pause and give thanks,
many people gave their lives in hope that we could live our lives without fear
