My zoozle

I took this picture of myself in a dressing room today with the intention of sending it to my husband with the caption, "I like having my zoozle back."

Cjane recently posted about her zoozle, and I have been thinking about the tangible and intangible nature of it. My zoozle was rediscovered after my 27-lb weight loss churned with my age and experience. But it is more than a straight shot of confidence. I am a bit more powerful. I am a bit more daring. I am truer. I am stronger. I am me. I like how this zoozle is playing out.

I think he will like any picture that features your breasts.

It's much more fun shopping for clothes and taking pics of yourself when you gots your zoozie back!

Ok I do not know what a Zoozle is so I guess I better find out.
Glad you found yours...Whatever it is - ha ha!

I don't know what a Zoozle is either, but you ARE looking FANTASTIC!!! I can relate to all the benefits you mentioned from the weight loss. It's a wonderful thing on so many levels. Great job!

Great work Karen, I hope you bought the top so you can show off.

Kazzy | December 29, 2010 at 10:42 AM

Does anyone else love polyester as much as I do? This was a cute dress. And yes, I bought it. :)

zoozle = good personal vibe

Love it. Love the dress. Love the Zoozle. At our house, it's still a Mojo. We're old school like that.

lesa | December 29, 2010 at 2:26 PM

Love that word. (even if I just learned it)

I'm looking forward to finding some zoozle or mojo this next year..

The dress is very cute and good job!

I am laughing, because I am wishing I could find my zoozie. I need to drop 40lbs before I can see mine again.

Valerie | December 29, 2010 at 4:27 PM

Cute dress!

I think I better find me some Zoozle too!

A zoozle??? sounds intriguing.
I could use stronger, more powerful....

I've heard of Zoobie (tee,hee) isn't that what they call BYU fans.

I've got plenty of that.

Wow! 27 pounds! You go zoozle girl!
That does look good.
I need to get some of your zoozle mojo!

Judi | December 29, 2010 at 9:28 PM

Za,za,za, ZOOZLE!

CiCi | December 29, 2010 at 9:39 PM

If having zoozle makes you feel that good, it must be a good thing. You do look pretty awesome in the dress. Did you email your photo to your husband?

Lara Neves | December 29, 2010 at 10:53 PM

If I could figure out how to whistle across the internet, I would! You look great! You are very inspiring, maybe I'll find my Zoozle this year.

Rachel Cotterill | December 30, 2010 at 3:45 AM

What's a zoozle? I've never heard that word before!

Erin | December 30, 2010 at 9:05 PM

Yay for the zoozle!

By the way, I just got an iPad and didn't know you could post from Wordpress if you use blogspot. Is it just as easy as finding a Wordpress app? Hmmm, I'll have to look it up.

Erin | December 30, 2010 at 9:05 PM

Oh, it's blogpress. I'll look it up when I'm less tired :)

Kim | December 31, 2010 at 7:22 AM

Can I just say ZOOZLE!!!! I love the word and by the way 27 lbs isn't an easy task! Great job!

BTW--Can you pass some your ZOOZLE my way? ;)

Happy New Year
