I lost weight for the first time at 22, after seeing a friend's year- old picture of us on our 21st birthday.  It was the first time I "saw" myself as fat, and spurred me to lose nearly 60 pounds.  I kept the weight off for years...until another picture reminded me that I was heavy again.

I'm almost where a should be-- and getting there with exercise!

I take pictures of myself to keep myself honest, select what looks best on my body, and remind me of how far I've come.  I enjoy clothes, but also the process of selecting them: the sounds and smell of the store, the delight with finding a piece that "matches" who I am that day. I shop from everywhere, but have a special place in my heart for  stores that never let the customer forget the magic of transformation, or of the art in discovery.
