  •  I'm not paying a lot of attention to it at the (4+ / 0-)

    moment.

    What I want to do is to get myself another underbust corset and start wearing that. It will help my back but also doesn't let me drink soda (which is an expensive habit I need to ditch) and doesn't let me eat a lot at a time, and I feel fuller sooner.

    It's always nice when what you want to do is helpful with what you need to do.

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

      about corseting. Thinking about it. I have two or three corsets, but they are uncomfortable. I like the idea of training my waist, though. It was 22" when I got married. I will probably never get it back to that. It's 28" now. Ugh.

      So you recommend that, Alexandra? I could try it.

      Yes, ditch soda. ASAP. It's crap and totally bad for you. Try flavored seltzer water if you crave carbonation. NOT "diet." Anything "diet" is full of chemicals and bad for you, IMO. I drink ice water with lemon juice, lime juice, or both. Or hot water with apple cider vinegar and honey.

      Have been on vacation. Eating enormous breakfasts with lots of protein, no carbs. Don't need lunch. Dinner--eh. Carbs. Bad. I love bread and butter :(

      Can't weigh myself. No scale in hotel bathroom. Going home tomorrow. Will probably scream :( Jeans fit, but shorts are tight :(

        corsets I've gotten from Timeless Trends. Not too expensive, steel boning, built like tanks, and their selection is beautiful.

        I'll save up over January to get a plain black underbust.

        •  I've been to that site, and I agree!! (0+ / 0-)

          Good luck with giving up soda. I was addicted to Pepsi with lemon. Now, if I ever drink soda, I get Coke. Because I don't like it.

          I really like La Croix peach and pear sparkling water.
