The Weight


Between Thanksgiving and New Years, we are urged to consume, consume and consume some more. Then right after the big ball drops in Times Square, we are urged to diet, diet, diet!

Maintaining a girlish figure between T-Day and January 1st is a battle. Some years are better or worse than other years. Most years, the battle is lost.

During those worse years, I have had to wear the heavy-duty girdle with the metal stays for any January outings en femme. But this year was better; I maintained my weight throughout the holidays.

I suspect that being a housewife for over a month while my spouse recovered from surgery had something to do with it. Trying to be a good little wife, I cleaned and washed and cooked like I never had before. And most weekdays, I also telecommuted eight hours a day. As a result, I did not gain a pound and I also have a better appreciation for women who are trying to have it all.

And now that the holidays of consumption are over, this housewife should be able to shed a few pounds.

Happy New Dress Size!

  1. Like you, while my wife has been recovering from her surgery I have been the chief cook, bottle washer, cleaner and chauffer but those duties and the weather have kept me more idle than usual and I think that the turkey day to New Year's 10 pounds have found a place on my waist. It is even a bit bit for me to squeeze into the corsets. Hopefully, I can get rid of some of the excess weight over the coming months.
    Congratulations to you for keeping that wonderful girlish figure.

  2. "Telecommute" is t-talk for "dressed all day," no?

    Among workmates I call it "clothing optional." Among t-friends I call it "wear what I want."

  3. Dear Stana,

    I am also trying to lose weight. My goal is to lose 10 more pounds by March 23, when I start my trip to attend the Keystone Conference in Harrisburg, PA the last week of March. I have lost 3 pounds in the last 3 weeks.

    The black-and-white photo shows a perfect height for wearing a bra. I now exclusively wear Amoena mastectomy bras, and with my breast forms in their pockets, the photo looks exactly like where I position my bra. My Amoena bras fill the cups exactly like the bra in the photo. The top of the filled cup aligns perfectly with my armpit.

    I'm wondering how you and your readers align their bra.
