I guess I can blame it on the TOM which is coming any minute now, but I am feeling sorry for myself
My son's first communion is this Saturday and I have been hunting high low both in my closet and the stores for something decent to wear. No sleeveless in church (not that I would wear them anyway) and I like long (mid calf). Trying on outfits has made me realize that I have changed from a ball to a rectangle. I used to be 40 pounds heavier and a size 18 and accepted that I looked poffy and fat. Now that I am a size 14 with a big waist I have no definition. From the front you can draw a line from my arm pit to my hips and it would be straight as an arrow. Sigh.
Finding nothing appropriate at the store, I have resigned myself to taking in a dress I wore to a baptism when I was 220 and hope for the best. I like the length, coverage and the guazy material of this dress but with it's empire waist I am just a big rectangle, lol. Well, at least I should look MUCH thinner in the dress this time around
Thanks for listening.
