I’m in Phase One of Getting Back into My Jeans

I remind myself that when my jeans were looser, I wasn’t necessarily happier.

I’m also in phase one of getting back into my daily diet. And I mean diet as a noun, not a verb. Meaning, I eat like a dog, but not literally like a dog. I eat the same basic food each day like one might wear a uniform. It’s been my most successful way yet of maintaining my weight. Which I should pause here and explain is no small feat. Because as a middle-aged woman who loves potato chips, I have tried every single weight control management system that exists.

I am an expert at eating and not eating.

I’ve always liked channeling people for short periods of time. Like trying on different styles of clothes here and there. Just to see how they feel, see if there is a part of me I have been missing all this time that I should claim.

I’d be like Julia “Butterfly” Hill, the woman who saved Luna, the old Redwood Tree.

I’m only in phase one of saying goodbye.

  1. First of all, I have been anxiously awaiting for another story. I am speechless right now, because these are definitely strange times. Emotions are all over the place. I can relate to a lot of this. Especially our eating habits. Oh, and I am wearing my Athleta Barre leggings right now, and I have never tried Barre. Keep that tree house!!!!
