09-22-2012, 09:32 PM
Because I am moving in 3 weeks and last night went through all my clothes and gave away all my size 24, 22 and 20 things. Less to move because there is less of me! It was bittersweet parting with some clothes I used to adore, but I blew through size 22 and 20 during the summer, so I never got to wear the cold-weather clothes in those sizes.

09-23-2012, 01:34 PM
Because yesterday I was looking through all the cute size 19 shirts that fit but don't quite look good enough on me yet. :lol:

Because the other option is unacceptable!

09-25-2012, 02:24 PM
Because I want to be fit and fabulous in my middle-age and senior years, not fat and immobile and unable to enjoy life. I now know that being youthful is in my control - and age really has very little to do with it!
