The things we do to improve ourselves is an endless list of ridiculousness followed up by even more ridiculousness. Is that even a word? Anyway, my daughter had a genius idea of how I could go about getting a waist. Even as I write these words I am laughing because how in the heck at 43 do you get something you had never had before when it comes to your body? I’m not giving up pizza or chocolate so please don’t panic.
From the time I have been very young I have always been a normal weight but never ever had a waist. So why am I desperately holding onto the dream even now? I have no idea, but it is true what has been said about always wanting what we can’t have. Maybe that is the problem right there. I’ve never believed it was actually possible for little, tiny me to have a waist. All the little, tiny parts of me were put into my height so who was I to hope there was a little extra tiny left for that are between my hips and chest.
The question is this? How bad do I really want a waist? We are going to find out. My daughter absolutely swears by the weighted hula hoop. She has been using it for sometime, and I must admit I see a huge difference but she is 15. I’ve got years of eating bad crap, loose skin from giving birth to 40 lb. babies and did I mention I am 43? I am going to give it a try. I can already feel the bruises stretching across my hips but I have tried everything else so why not give this a try too. One of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is this:
Time to try something different!
