I came out of the closet...

Sunday, July 26, 2009

I came out of the closet yesterday!!

My dad was in hospital again and the nurse left us so my dad could get into his hospital gown.

Well, I helped with the gown part then I generally go out into the hallway so he can remove his pants.

This time I just turned my back by the door and I generally will open half the closet so no one can hit me with the door upon entering.

Well, I looked in the closet, and just had to see if I fit! I did but my head did touch the shelf. Then I tried to close the door - it hit my shoes. I turned my size 8 feet a little and the door closed! I closed the other and called to my dad - he couldn't find me!

I fit into the hospital cupboard laughingly called a closet; it had a depth of about 7-1/2 to 8" with a height of 5', possibly another inch high as I am only 5'1.5" tall.

P.S. My dad is ok and is home again today.
This top is size Medium and the hip-hugger pants are size 6!
The legs are baggy!! (I was surprised to see that in the picture.)
This is me at 120.4 lbs!

    Congratulations, my friend,
How exciting for you. Wish I had seen this blog sooner.
I needed a good laugh these last 4+ months!!
Keep up the great work. How exciting for you, huh?
Peace and blessings,
P.S. I am glad my DH built a really big walk-in closet for me so I can write a similar blog but not reveal the sizes.
Peace and blessings,

    Oh Linda, I would LOVE to get into a closet, especially 1 that small.LOL . You look AMAZING my friend. I weighed 120 when I was 14, if you can imagine I am taller than you so I guess, even though I was never happy with my weight, I DID look great! Thanks for letting me feel like I haven't always had a weight problem after all.

Love ya,

I thought I saw a shadow in that photo, but IF I did, it was from the baggy pants, LOL
