Today, my friend, Joanna, published an interview, included in that interview were some photos of my friend Beth and me .
I took the liberty of lifting two of her photos. I was totally shocked at how heavy I used to be. While I remember the photo being taken in front of the rose bush at Rosa’s home in Sta Elena, I have to guess that it was taken two years ago.
The photo on the right was taken two days ago. Oddly enough I seem to standing in a hole since I am two whole inches taller than Beth!
It just goes to show that we really don’t see ourselves. I’ve been feeling frustrated and convinced that I had not really lost any weight.
Almost the same pose but in December of 2009, since I still have that top, I slipped it on, stepped outside to have Husband take quick snapshot. I think I should keep that top and periodically take photos with it on. I still have those jeans, but it was simply too warm to put them on today.
The reason that I was feeling frustrated was that Mrs WB and I went shopping yesterday. It was great fun, we didn’t buy anything, she wanted a tankini, but apparently they either are so in demand that the shops have sold out or the opposite has happened, with the buyers not ordering any. At Say arz (Sears to you people NOB), I found what must be the only 34 DD bra in all of Merida. At this point even the fact that they wanted almost mx $500 for it didn’t phase me one bit. However, being prudent, I tried it on. It created that double boob thing that resembles a muffin top but further north. I find it rather ironic that losing weight is actually causing me problems finding foundation garments that fit. I can only hope that a few more pounds down the road, the problem will sort itself out. It’s not like I look like Dolly Parton or anything, it’s been decades since I caused any industrial accidents.
This morning I went from Huacho Martin to Huacho Martin looking for lingerie elastic. They have it in the samples book at some of the locations but none seem to have it in stock. Fortunately, I was able to find something that I think will work. Wish me luck, this weekend I am planning on having adventures in bra making.
