I wrote a blog entry last week about how even though I have not lost a significant amount of weight recently, my body has started changing. Specifically, it has started getting lumpy looking. Well, we can add the word "shifty" to my description.
I've always been built like a Russian peasant woman--thick torso with a belly, big boobs, and flat butt. (No offense to the Russians, but it's kind of the stereotypical shape that you see in movies and photographs). I have never had a real, defined waist. Even in my skinny days, I was built more like a ruler than an hourglass.
But things are shifting. I bought a straight skirt this summer. It was tight in the waist, and a smidge too small in the hips, but I figured that in ten pounds it would fit in the hips and while the waist would be tight, I could just wear a sweater and the waistband would cover it. Ten pounds later, it fits in the hips, but the waist is already too big!
Of course I am thrilled that clothing is TOO BIG, but it's a super cute skirt, and now I'm going to have to find a tailor to take it in, because this is literally the first time I've worn it.
