This week has just been alright as far food goes. My family is going through a really difficult time right now. Not my hubby or kids (Thank God!) - my brother and his family specifically but it's affecting everyone. I'm not sleeping well, I'm getting headaches and my eye is once again twitching from the stress. This, of course, has led to some not so great food choices. While I feel I've done better with this stress than I have in the past, I'm still expecting a gain on the scale on Monday. I decided to try retail therapy that so many of you swear by to cheer myself up the other day. Shopping has never been therapeutic for me. Nothing ever fit and if it did, it was fat lady tent clothing that just made me feel worse about myself. So I tentatively went in search of a dress or skirt I could wear to work. I didn't buy anything but everything I tried on fit! I even fit into a size medium dress and a size 12 skirt! That's right! I said size 12! I couldn't sit in it without it ripping but I could zip it. I honestly don't know the last time I was a size 12 and by rights, I'm not now but I'm strangely close. It seems I am between a size 14 and 12 and between a size Large and Medium. That's right...MEDIUM. Holy cow!!!! So I took some pics of myself in the dressing room to prove that I went shopping even if all I bought was a new purse (it's a money thing not a clothes thing). What was shocking was I actually felt better. For the first time EVER, trying on clothes was FUN and made me forget about things for an hour.
