One Little Thing: Look 10 Pounds Thinner Right Now

No, your eyes do not deceive you, nor do I, your devoted servant and blogger. Go stand in front of a full length mirror, sideways. Now stand up straight; engage your abs–aka hold your tummy in–but please continue to breathe… just sayin.’ Hold your shoulders back with your head centered squarely over your spine. See what I mean. Ten pounds for sure, and 10 years too, I bet. Men, you too.

Now of course we all know this, so why the Sam-hell don’t we walk and stand like this all the time? If you do, good; you are an inspiration for all of us. If you don’t, practice. Practice practice practice, and soon, like gratitude it becomes a habit. (Remember that post? if not here it is.) You’re welcome. It’s the least I can do seeing as it’s fashion week and I’m out here in the boondocks where the closest thing to a catwalk is paw prints on the hood of my Subaru.

All the models pictured below are actually 72 years old and weigh at least 172 pounds — each, not all together. Good posture is a miracle and looks good on everybody, as you can see:
