LBD Incentive

I was pawing through my closets, trying to find my little black skirts for the Cinti Wine Tasting Festival, when I decided to pull out my LBD*.

This was the LBD I bought for my 20th high school reunion..which was 9 years ago.  My mom altered the hem of it for me.



Well, I gained 5 or 7 pounds by the time the reunion came around, and it was too snug to zip up.  So  I chose a different dress (actually a red dress, which was good, because everyone else was in their LBD) and relegated this to the closet.

On a whim, I tried it on. I expected it to not fit-at all.  Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could zip it up-almost all the way.  Right now, it's too tight at the bustline.  SO, if I can lose probably five or ten pounds, the LBD will fit again.

It's another good incentive for me. It's a cute little dress, it looks better on than on the hangar.  I've moved the LBD to the front of the closet, to keep a mental q on it.  5 or 10 pounds will make me faster going up mountains-but it will also make the LBD fit!



*LBD- little black dress, for you male ultra runners out there.  You know who you are.
