Have had a super busy week and no time to revisit before now. Ive been mostly really good, well mostly..... Apart from the Rolos i had at the cinema while weeping to Les Miserarbles! Despite that i think i made good choices, these last few weeks have made me so much conscious of just what im eating. I stop if I full and decide whether I want it and if I have the calorie capacity for it.
However despite all that, shredding 3 times and a 2 hour country walk I've only lost a 1lb. Gutted really. And feel cheated!
Kato bet you'll look fab in the dress. Love the fact someone walked right past you!
Hair also at cardigan shaped! Excellent on fitting into the jackets.
IMST love the comment about thread reaching capacity and your clothes
I am at the thought of a person size 12/14 being obese, even if they are short.
Today has been quite good. Went to the gym on the way home and been good food wise. I noticed today I was running up the stairs at work with a big spring in my step and feeling like I could keep going with lots of energy when I got to the top - this time last year I used to be all hot and bothered and find it hard work getting up those same stairs. NSV for me. Feels great to be feeling fitter and a healthier weight.
I was toying with the idea of replacing one of my pax wardrobe doors with a mirrored one, they are like £25 or something. As a rule all my mirors used to be from boobs up, and now i have to stand on my bed to check myself! H&S nightmare!
Anyone can start a new thread but not me because they die a death and I need this one.
I think I'm free either day too. Kato, dh is curious about you. I think he's been a little bit in love with you since you introduced the concept of a Munchy box to him (not that he's ever had one).
NSV for me today. I was out with my mum on Saturday night and we were talking about weight. She is the same height as me but a slightly different shape. It turns out that we both weigh the same. I've always thought of her as slim.
Anyway today I got out a couple of jackets she'd given me that she didn't wear anymore. I'd been saving them for when the weight came off. One is a size 12. Not only could I get them on but I could do them up without them gaping. Yes!!
I think this is more to do with how I view myself than anything else. I said to IMST that maybe people will stop thinking of me as a fat person soon. She said they didn't anyway but I am a bit cardigan shaped. I am never without one.
Big up for my self esteem and maybe it's time to invest in a full length mirror. I seriously need to get a grip on what I actually look like.
I think it more shows that the system is wonky at best! It'll keep me motivated though, and I have a rare night out on Saturday so I'm going all out glam with a hot pink lace overlay bodycon dress! eeeekkk
Met a client today who I've not seen in over a year and she walked right past me! nsv!!
Hi everyone. How's everyone doing? I'm still ok...nit brilliant but managing to not binge Imst, hair and Kato, would it be possible to meet up on the 11 April instead of the 10th? Still looking at all the options and trying to work out whether it makes sense for ne to stay over before the thing or after it.
Well done everyone, what a good week. I've had quite a good weekend except for a few drinks on Saturday night and will again tomorrow but will hope for a maintain as it's so soon after Friday's surprise loss.
8020 I was in 12/14 jeans while still obese, I think it's because I'm so short, "obese" goes down to quite a low weight. If I could face going to a shop I'd find out what size I am now, perhaps next month. I slightly begrudge buying new clothes that no longer fit after a month or so. Especially those gap jeans I bought in November, which now hang like sacks, and are held up by a belt, but I won't ditch them until I reach my target weight, then I'll buy long lasting decent quality clothes to last me years.
