Relax and adjust for weight loss, health, and vitality

Back in February or so, I noticed I had gained a bit of weight.   I generally don’t gain or lose weight (which always draws a few “I hate you”s from other women. Thanks patriarchy for training us to hate on each other for things we can’t control.)   So when my clothes were fitting …
