      Awww Sue, thank you. I want to feel like what I am doing/saying helps others somehow/someway. You are the sweetest!

    I am not sure how I found your blog, but I just love it. I love your fashion and decorating style. Keep being you — you are beautiful.
    I really like the trench coat — I would like to order but checking sizing. I am normally a large or size 12. What size would you recommend?

      Hi Diane, thank you so much for saying hi and I’m so happy and appreciative of you being here 🙂 As for the jacket I would recommend you get Medium as it is roomy XO

    Great post.

  4. Erin says:

    Thank you for this post. I feel like I am constantly in this cycle of dieting, gaining weight back, then beating myself up for it. My new goal is to be ok and happy about who i really am and what I look like. It’s helpful to know that other people struggle with this.

    • therusticlife says:

      Erin, it’s such a struggle for most women, especially in this digital age. It sounds like you are on the right track to success. Self love is a constant journey. Never give up. XO

  5. Thank you! Feeling the blogging comparison game hard lately!

    • therusticlife says:

      It’s so hard not to, so I get it. Just keep doing you, people love YOU and that is all that matters!

    Oh my gosh this is the first time I’ve read your blog and I freeking LOVE YOU!! I’m 54 and when I hit 50 my body wants to be 2 sizes bigger unless I starve myself in spinach and asparagus. I’m also a foodie here in Southern California. I live at the beach and my family surfs so it’s intense pressure for the bathing suits! Even at 54!!! God I’m so exhausted and you just made me feel like a million dollars girlfriend! Thank you Lord for this gal!

    • therusticlife says:

      Jacqueline, as women we often times need to feel like we are not alone with how we are feeling. The inner struggles we have and face. It can be overwhelming. I’m so happy this post helped you to feel better. XO

  7. I so needed to hear these words today! All of it rings so true. Thank you for continuing to be you and showing the rest of the world what REAL WOMEN look like! You are an inspiration.
