Exercise That!

~ And I did. ~

~ Yeah, I finally got off my tush ~

... and started an exercise regime a year ago on April 1.  No kidding.

~ In fact, this is one of my exercise ensembles ~

Except for the shoes, of course.  Then I wear my silver, flat soled, slip-on, Trippens. 

This is all old stuff, just never worn together before.  A Tina Givens Olivia Tunic Pattern made out of really stretchy thin jersey knit and a Tina Givens Phoebe Pants Pattern made out of embellished corduroy.

But here's the really good news:  After one year of exercising regularly, with no change in my diet, I lost 11 lbs.  Otherwise I'm sure I would have gain weight.  Which is one of the things I've been doing each year as I get older.  
(Tell me about it.)  

But even cooler are all the inches I've lost.  In comparing the measurements taken a year ago, to today's --- I've lost .5" from biceps, 2" from bust, 2" from waist, 2.5" from hips, 2.5" from thighs and a whopping 7.5" from abdomen!

Of course, no one notices because of the way I dress.  But that's not the point.  I am committed.  So what's your story?

~ Oh, and here's my shoes from ebay ~

I'll be off to Patti's and the Visibles and Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like and Cherie's Shoe and Tell, when they go live.  See you there!
