|No! this is not me! but this was just like me struggling to do up trousers before I lost the first stone!
At the end of last term, all of my work clothes pinched me. I would have to undo my trousers when I drove and by the end of the day it genuinely felt as if my waist band was going to cut me in half! My first happy milestone to report is that my size 16 clothes all fit me comfortably and the waist band is loose on all of them. Previously, I was down to one or two items that I could still look respectable in and others that looked as if I’d been poured into them and over the top of them. No one wants this!
I can now say, nothing is hanging over the top of my size 16 trousers!!!! Tonight, frugality extends to my free work out. First of all, the 30 minute walk with the dogs and then back to twenty minutes jumping up and down with Brenda on my lateral thigh trainer! Today is a protein only day and certainly hasn’t been that cheap. Breakfast was an oatbran pancake, a slice of bacon and and egg, lunch was a small pot of cottage cheese, followed by a yoghurt, supper was some braised beef and onions with some cream cheese on top!
My next mile stone will be to get down to twelve stone and size 14 clothes (won’t need to buy any…..I have clothes from size 12 – 16!), which I know will be slower and will eventually slow down to around 2lbs a week. As I get slimmer and weigh less I intend to get more exercise and I’m sure it will get easier. If nothing else! I have slim and happy dogs!
