Please sing along with Roxy to the tune of “London Bridge is Falling Down“:

Roxy’s pants are falling down, falling down, falling down

Roxy’s pants are falling down…. D’Apolito!

My loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers know that when London and Maddie headed back to school at Mendham Township Elementary this Fall, their out-of-shape mom started a diet and exercise program with the goal of losing a pound per week until I lost 25 pounds and reached my “fighting weight” of 135 pounds. The first three weeks went well, with three or four times per week workouts on the elliptical trainer in our basement gym, healthy foods, and a positive mental attitude.  I was feeling great and losing weight at the rate of 2 pounds per week.  Then the stock market crashed, Wall Street needed a bailout, and I lost my appetite.  I wish I could claim that it was Roxy’s Back-to-School fitness program rather than stress over the U.S. economy that has caused my 15-20 pounds of weight loss since early September, but no matter how I got here, the fact is that I’m looking slimmer than I have in years.

While I have a fine wardrobe of pre-pregnancy 1990’s clothing that I can take out of the closet to show off my svelte new self, I have grown quite fond of many of the newer size 10 clothes I’ve added to my collection over the past 8 to 10 years…but those hot new low rise jeans don’t look quite right crumpled around my ankles or held fast below my waistlne using safety pins on either side.

It’s time for D’Apollito and Son Tailors to come to the rescue! Since Rex has been working out consistently since August 2007 and eating much healthier under the guidance of his nutritionist, Corinne Bush at the Far Hills Pharmacy, we’ve been sending quite a bit of work D’Apolito’s way, and Rex has never looked better in his exquisitely tailored business suits.

Now the only question is when to take my clothes in for alterations.  Weighing in at 140 to 145 pounds, I have about ten pounds to go before I reach my weight loss goal, and despite dropping the weight, I haven’t really toned up my tummy and abs.  Should I wait and see if the pounds and inches continue to melt away over the next couple of months, or should I take it in (pun intended) to D’Apolito and Sons Tailors right away?  I’d appreciate advice from Roxy’s Best Of… readers, and I may just stop by D’Apolito and Sons to see if the tailors have any recommendations for me.
