Dare to Wear White Leggings…

Posted on: July 16, 2015

I Know There Are A Lot of Bloggers, 

who wouldn’t dare to wear leggings….

I however am a real Mom, who today, was looking for extreme comfort

I ordered these fabulous leggings from Evine Live and love the quality. 

I ordered this top from Burlington Coat Factory, love that they sell online now, 

but be forewarned… their return policy is awful.  

My daughter tried to make a return and had the receipt that came in the package with her when she went into the store.

That wasn’t good enough, they wanted some silly thing she had to sign up for online, receive and print to accompany the receipt… A wasted trip to the store the day before she went back to Boston College… So frustrating!

Today we met with my son’s bowling team for a last practice together before this weekend’s tournament. 

It was a lot of  fun and I was so thrilled to see how well they were all doing.  

I carried and wore my cobalt sweater since the bowling alley is usually so cold. 

DSC_0576I cringed when I saw the stomach lump here, but it is what it is…

I could have cropped the picture and taken it out,

but I am too honest to you my Dear Readers, for that… 

Embracing the body I currently have! 

Heck, I am almost 50 and dealing with menopause, I’ve earned the right to this body!!! 

Of course, that’s easier for me to say, now that I am full force working to lose this 15lb menopausal gain..

I love this new top and hope to wear it more often and perhaps into fall with a sweater over it. 

Check out another blogger who shows several ways she wears her white leggings,  glad to see I am not alone in this! 

Gratitude

I am so grateful that my son did well today with his bowling, as his scores had gone down after getting him the performance ball and he really wants to use it in the tournament.  He went from a grumpy teen I’ve been dealing with for two weeks, to smiling and back to a much more lovable version.  Just in time for the weekend! 

I am grateful that my niece is having fun with bowling and getting new high scores , since she is getting dragged into this! 

I am grateful that my oldest will come stay with our dog while we are away, there is such comfort in that, priceless! 

I am grateful that changing my shoes worked and I was able to do my late night power walk with my husband without any back of the knee pain!  I was literally happy dancing this morning when I awoke to no knee pain.. 

I am grateful for this time I get to share with my niece and seeing my brother each morning and night! 

I am grateful to my dear niece for taking my photos today, giving my boys a break.  My bowler banged his ankle and was hobbling and my college son fractured his finger bowling Saturday night… Yes, bowling has it’s risks, lol!

You look perfect the way you are – no photoshopping needed. I don’t wear much leggings so I’ve never even considered buying white ones. I do wear my white jeans all summer long.

I love this top, Tracey and you look great. This is probably my preferred length for myself as it ends at the slimmer part of my thigh. (Not that I have any “slim” parts – ha.) Menopausal body….yeah, I’m experiencing that too. And it hit me like a lightening bolt the minute I stopped taking my bc pills a few months ago. I was shocked it was so sudden. Had probably been in it, but the pills hid the fact to me. Am having a more difficult time than ever in my life getting my own 15 lbs off….and I’m being so good with my diet too. Hubby is doing it with me and we will persist and try to do this for life 95% of the time. Good luck to you!

This is hard and I think exercise is going to be the most important part of this process. I am eating well and not seeing much change. I want this gone! My metabolism is definitely different!
