Clothes-shrinking gnomes attacked my closet. So, I joined Weight Watchers.

As I transitioned from an all-day loungewear wardrobe back to a work wardrobe when I started my new job in an office, I discovered that my clothes were tighter. A little more snug. Not so flattering. They’d been ignored, hanging defenseless in the closet for months, and totally susceptible to an invasion. Who knows when the clothes-shrinking gnomes attacked all of my dresses and pants? It could have happened anytime during Marchaprilmayjunejuly. Perhaps it was one gnome army that was in-and-out in the middle of the night. Or, it could have been a series of attacks. Regardless of how it happened, pretty much every item of clothing that didn’t have significant stretch was a victim.

I had two options: toss out the shrunken clothes and buy new ones or shrink myself to fit into the clothes.

Option two was the cheapest and most logical choice.

Unfortunately, shrinking isn’t quite as simple as drinking a potion that says “drink me” sitting on a table.

I joined weight watchers. Time to shrink in a healthy way.

Two weeks in, and I am happy to report that I am obsessed with the app and the program. Admittedly, it’s mostly because I’m down six pounds. I see results. But not only do I see results on the scale – I FEEL healthier. And I’m on the “blue” plan which has an all-you-can-eat approach with healthy foods: chicken, seafood, veggies, fruits, lean meats are all “zero points” meaning I can eat as much as I want. It’s how our diets really should be. Then limit the sweets, carbs, junk food, and alcohol which all have points. The WW app makes it easy to track and also help make the best choices.

Cheers to getting back into my clothes, and winning the war against the gnomes ✌️
