Classic Hollywood Figure

It is a dark and gloomy afternoon. I did a tarot reading this morning in the studio, worked on some wands, wished I had my large canvasses, put some faces on some soft dolls. I packed it in early (12:30ish) as it looked like rain, and I had no umbrella with me. I am going to have to remember one tomorrow.

I'm so happy in my new space. It is an amazing space for readings, I'm discovering. Plus, it really is perfect for the creative me!

When I got home today, though, I poked around online, got a strange message in a strange moment from a friend, and then gave up and crawled into bed, setting the alarm so I wouldn't be late for school collection. I haven't had a day like this in a while, and I'm wondering why I feel so sensitive - but I had to honour it anyway. When tears sneak up on a body like that, you just have to let them come.

And then, they are out.

I can't wait to get back into my regular clothing. I'm down 7 pounds total (in the 2 weeks) and 3" off my waist, and 1" off my hips (I'm sort of surprised by that one.) I"m afraid to measure my bust - mainly because ideally I'd like to NOT lose any of THAT. hahaha. I had a dream when I started this, that a woman told me I had a "Classic Hollywood Figure." I was hiding it under a big sheet, draped to pretend it was a dress. She handed me white corsettes to try on, insisting I should stop hiding...

I haven't been exercising - do you think doing crunches or sit ups would actually help with the waistline? It's odd, because i'm currently at my 'ideal' weight, but my waist is still a 34, and for my size, I'm normally a 29 or 30. what up with the extra inches at the right weight?

Yeah. I'm still not measuring my bust.
