And that's a wrap . . .

Wow. Busy, busy, busy. No time to write.

At any rate, as of last Saturday, I am officially freaked out.

Here's the story. For the past couple of months I have been a little bit depressed since every time I open my closet, there is nothing that fits. As a result, I have been wearing the same 3 outfits every week, mixing and matching parts and accessories to make them look different, since those are the only ones that don't make me look as if I am wearing someone else's clothes.

Sooooo, because last week I finally reached my target weight, I decided to do a little bit of shopping. The fact that my favorite clothing store was having a mega-sale was an incentive too.

To make a long story short, I go there, grab a number of pants (all size 6, since the 8's are now too big), and try them on. To my surprise, most of them fit rather loose. Finally, I grab this cute little pair of cropped pants, and bingo! They fit like a glove!

At that point I am extremely happy, looking at myself in the mirror and saying "Score!" when I look at the tag and I realize that they are not a size 6, but a size 4.


"So," says ballistabob. "When was the last time that you fit in a size 4?"

"In my adult life?" I reply.



Needless to say that I walked out with a number of pieces that have refurbished my wardrobe a little bit, and that have lifted my spirits.

And that's it for now. Tomorrow, I will be writing about Pennsic and rapier, and how working out has been working out with my fighting.

Last but not least, as promised to siobhan_sca, here are a couple of pics of me wearing my Roman. (I wish I had more pics, especially with palla and all, but when you yourself are the shutterbug, you don't get many pictures of you.)

And you looked fabulous, darling!

Go you! I'm going to use you as inspiration to reverse the weight gain trend I've been seeing on my scale. You are looking Bel-ilicious!

You should ask her about the "Body By Bel" fitness plan. ;D

Absolutely! I will be writing an article on LJ on this. Or maybe a series of articles to keep everyone going. What do you think?

Do it! I long to be inspired.

You're on! Will do then! :-)

Great, thanks! And I'll ask Izzy to keep an eye out for you; she's another good one for taking candid shots of folks :-)

Thank you! And congrats to wearing an L! Keep up the good work. You may surprise yourself down the road!

And, I would love to look at your Roman dress closer up, that's different than mine but I like the drape!

Sure! It is a banded stola, and the instructions are in Iohanna's webpage. I have to say that it is not only flattering, but also incredibly comfortable, and quite easy to make. I can bring one of them to the Barony meeting if you are making it. :-)
