Looking Forward To Spring And Summer
Tuesday, March 10, 2015
When we turned our clocks ahead to start Daylight Saving Time for 2015, it woke me up to the fact that spring is almost here, meaning no more figure-hiding coats and jackets. I love to sew and just finished making myself a new dress to wear to my granddaughter's wedding in May and my grandson's wedding in June. I put it on my dress form, which my kids named "Mabel" many years ago. I've always wanted my measurements to come as close to "Mabel's" as possible, but used to have to add an inch or two to anything I made for myself, because I wasn't quite as slender in the waist and hips as "Mabel" was. So after I saw how great my new dress looked on the dress form, I could hardly wait to try it on to see if it fit me as nicely as it did her. Hallelujah! It fit me perfectly and I'll really keep focused on calories and exercise to make sure it still looks as good on me in May and June as it does now. What a great motivation I have to "keep on keeping on" with my maintenance program. What's your motivation? Think about it.
