Uh-oh, back on the diet ... (and a Food for Thought Friday!)

Only a year ago, I decided to go on a very strict diet to lose a few pounds ~ no matter what it took! After a couple of set-backs, I eventually did manage to drop some pounds. However, it would seem that, as what happens all too often when one "diets," I have been slipping back into my old habits. Partially because of lack of energy and also due to the constant hormonal struggle with weight which seems to come with, unfortunately, peri-menapause. Unlike only a few years ago, when I lost over 40 pounds in order to get into my beautiful wedding dress (which I had actually bought the year before our ceremony), it is not as easy as all that anymore!!

Yesterday, I decided to go shopping for a nice little black dress in which to wear when hubby and I go out for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary this weekend. It was then that I realized exactly how much I had let things go ...

And, I had found the prettiest little (well, not THAT little ~ LOL!) Jim Shore designer necklace to go along with it ...

I had also picked up an "Athena" costume at the local "Spirit Halloween" store that I simply couldn't resist ...

Now, all I have to do is buckle down some in order to feel a bit more comfortable in these outfits. And so, my friends, here we go again! LOL!!


  1. Dearest Kim, You look lovely in both dresses. I think that you have kept the weight in check more than you know. I especially love the "Athena" dress and every woman needs a little black dress :)

    Have a wonderful wedding anniversary celebration!!!

    Lots of Hugs

    1. Many thanks to you, Jan! You are such a sweet and dear friend! Hope all is well with you!

      Much love,


  2. Kim, seriously, I think you look beautiful in both your outfits! I understand though about the weight! It's something you have to watch for the rest of your life! Fun stuff! LOL!
    That necklace is so pretty! You have great legs!!!! Happy Wedding Anniversary ;o)
    Big Hugs xoxoxo

    1. Aww, you are so sweet, Stacy! :) Thank you!!!!

      Sometimes I think I am ALL legs no matter how much I weigh! LOL!!!!

      Much love to you,
