Who went into my closet and shrunk all of my shorts?!?!??!

Wedding photo 1995Winter sucks.  Nothing new there.  In anticipation of our upcoming vacation out west, I tried on some of my shorts. Oh crap!  I’ve gained a few pounds over the winter, and now all of my summer clothes are too tight.  I just can’t seem to get motivated to exercise.

I was doing so well.  I lost 57 pounds five years ago, after having been overweight most of my adult life.  I gained 20 pounds back, but have maintained my weight for four years.  It is so hard to lose weight when you get older. One thing for sure, I will never be skinny, and that’s okay with me.  When you get too thin when you are older, your face gets really wrinkled. Not a look I’m going for.

One thing I would like to add for my younger followers: Don’t worry about being a bit thick. I was about 30 pounds overweight for many years, and that didn’t keep me from dating good looking guys.  It’s really all about how you carry yourself and your personality.

I married a handsome man eight years younger than me, and we are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary this year.  It’s all about attitude!

Here’s me and my handsome hubby on our wedding day twenty years ago.
