Day 56: Top 10 Before and After - Number 5

Crapola. Missed blogging last night due to playing with my new phone. I finally got a Droid after putting off the upgrade for 4 years. So I spent a while playing with it (and the husbands since apparently our contacts will not back up into the new phones from our Backup Assistant). Anyway...

I hit a high today when I went to visit my mom for lunch. I stopped at Organica in Ramsey for a juice (kale cucumber tomato celery spinach lemon), then I went over by her house to have my drink and chat.  I mentioned how my work dress pants are all falling off my butt and she, the wonderful seamstress, offered to take in the pants while I had lunch.  So she pinned the back, down the rear seam, and sewed.  She took 6 inches off the waist!

This is now number 5 - six inches off the waist of my dress pants.  Now, you have to figure it is even more because the pants have a stretchy give and I have been wearing them for the past 4 or 5 years. The whole label section from the rear is gone. I am so happy.
