My body is weird! LOL (PICTURE)

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Since December 5th I've dropped 8 pounds due to stress, hardly eating, and lack of sleep. Its a very hard time of year due to missing Josh and Maddie. Then you add to the mix we're trying to still find a new house. I'm just very overwhelmed and feel like I'm drowning and wished someone would throw me a life line.

Anyway... We got ready to leave tonight to go look at a house. I was getting ready to leave and decided to throw some jeans on because I didn't know what the temp was outside. I grabbed a pair of jeans and happened to look at the tag "20W Relaxed". I thought to myself "Hmmm, wonder if they fit". I slipped them on and buttoned them up and was shocked! emoticon emoticon Yeah they're a little snug but not to terribly uncomfortable. I'm sitting in them at the moment at my desk as I type this.

Now, although I'm excited I had to chuckle. If I were to go in my bedroom right now and put on a size 20 pair of shorts they would instantly fall off of me. Right now I'm in a size 16 as far as that is concerned. I just thought it was crazy and had to share.

    You have gone through huge changes in your life and have suffered a lot of loss,,,, so it is not unnatural to feel overwhelmed ,,, especially at the holiday times........ so remember to take a moment to "BREATH"~ ~ ~ ~ Sounds easy but many times we get overwhelmed by changes, responsibilities and things that we "think that we should do"..... take some time to take care of yourself,,,,, emoticon

    So hard not to stress over things.. but most things we worry about never happen. Hope the stress goes away soon and you can start enjoying your life again. I hate how sizes run. Hard to buy anything when each thing you try on fits differently even though they are the "same size." Glad you found some pants that aren't too tight though. Definitely can make you feel good!

    Went back and read your "about me" blurb... January can be a hard month for me, because my brother died Jan. 20th several years ago. After New Year's Day, it often hits me. Loss of loved ones is hard, so I'm sending you extra hugs. xxoo
