I saw some friends yesterday at a birthday party, people who I haven’t really seen since I started the diet. I didn’t realize until several hours after we got home that when they kept saying, “You look great!” they might not have meant my dress. I just thought they were complimenting my sartorial choices – hey, I hadn’t worn that dress before and I think I accessorized it marvelously! That’s a reasonable assumption, right?
But then after we got home and I was brushing my teeth I thought, “Oh, maybe they meant my weight loss – I mean, I am down 25 pounds now so it’s reasonable that it might have started showing, maybe?” I dunno, coulda just been the dress too. Doesn’t matter overly much either way, but I was amused at how slow I was (if, in fact, it was the loss they were commenting on).
Saturday night, which I mentioned last week, was a dress-up Vampire Ball and I was very pleased with how my look turned out. Here’s my darling husband and I looking delightfully vampiric. This was put together with some pieces I had on hand already.
What, you don’t have wigs and top hats sitting around in your house?
