Today is the first day

I am wearing pink today. I've discovered that I don't have much pink. I have found that I want more pink. I can't find more pink. Of course I haven't hit the full price stores because that doesn't help me stay out of the red. I'll have the first pink pic for the color challenge tomorrow. I've been totally out of it lately and can't seem to get myself together. We're having another bout of dark rain right now and all I want to do is to go back to bed and stay there all day. I'm not going to do that. I'm going to iron. I am really grateful for the ironing board I inherited from my mom. You can sit to iron. As is usual on really rainy days the knee is acting up and I don't think standing would work well.

I have started to go to a meeting that I hope will help me to get control of my overeating. I know that losing weight would help with the back and knee problems I have. And I know I would feel lots better about myself if I could be more relaxed about my body.

I have been enjoying reading all of the fashion posts I get. Some are very young girls who have wonderful bodies and can wear skinny jeans. Some are young women who are able to spend for the better name brands. Some are into thrift. There are those that are carrying weight and working with that. Some are older and a few are downright aged. I feel as if I get something from the posts no matter what the age and interests of the writer. I also realize that many of the posts present fashion that I can't wear, would be inappropriate for my age or body type, or sometimes just isn't my taste. Those are just as important to me as the ones I relate to because they help me define things I can be comfortable and attractive in. One thing I am sure of is that the posts make me more aware of and connected with the world. And I love them all.

Judy, you are doing what is right for you and your health.
I agree with you on some of your points in relation to fashion blogs.
I love to read so many of them but there are those that I can not connect with because their lives are so foreign for me!
I only read and comment in the ones I really enjoy!!!

What you said about all the blogs is great. I'm glad you wrote it down. I have thought it too. Just reading the different blogs (or even looking at the pictures if I'm short on time) help me know what clothes are better suited for me and just help me know more about clothes and fashion in general.
