Two years ago, I made this super cute, totally awesome green belt to wear out to Wendover on St. Patrick's Day. I didn't think I had lost any weight since then because the scale has been so up and down. I thought I'd be about the same size as I was then, but I'm not. The belt was made to fit just below my waist, and it isn't adjustable in size. When I put it on this morning, it fell way too low on my hips! At first, I was irritated. (That belt took a lot of work to make!) Then the shock hit. How could I possibly be smaller than I was two years ago? Even though I don't have exact measurements to compare, the evidence is undeniable. Now, I'm feeling a mix of happiness, irritation, and nervousness.
Happiness-I'm smaller than I was two years ago.
Irritation-That belt is going to take a lot of work to make it fit again.
Nervousness-Should I make it fit again? What if I get bigger again? If I make the belt smaller, the only way to make it bigger would be to start from scratch, and I'd have to re-do the beaded fringe! Just the thought of re-doing the beaded fringe is enough to convince me to not adjust the belt, but...I didn't make it to sit on a shelf, and I don't want to plan on getting bigger again!
Well, it looks like I've got a belt to fix.
Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!
