New Years Resolution

I for one have never been one for making New Years resolutions. They make for a good gesture, but how many people ever achieve their goals. Well, it has been nearly two years since I lost my job and haven’t been shopping for clothes since then. I decided to go out shopping for a Christmas party outfit and got the shock of my life. Good lighting makes a big difference in department stores than the lighting in your home. The one thing that really got me thinking was when I tried on a snug fitting dress and couldn’t get it pass my thighs, feeling embarrassed I pulled off the dress thinking that I must have grabbed the wrong size. I had to turn around face to face to the mirror to pull it off and got a reality check.  Staring in that mirror for at least 10 minutes examining my figure from head to toe, I came to grips that I saw more than I had imagined. Who would have imagined a small framed women could have cellulite being a size 7. But, being of a mature age, size ain’t nothing but a number when it comes to weight. I remembered reading about this women Ernestine Shepard 75 years of age who is a fitness body builder and lets not forget the amazing body. If you don’t believe me check it out for yourself. Yeah, that’s it, that is what I want and I will make it my New Year’s Resolution. I won’t say that I will go the extreme of the body builder because I don’t like all those manly muscles but I will get rid of the dimples in my thighs and tone my arms. Wish me luck. I will keep you updated with my progress.
