Out with the Old, and in with the errrrr.. not so new...

You may be looking at this heading, thinking.. WHAT is she on about?? Well it all started with this morning, another freakin morning of trying to find something to wear.. I have several pairs of the nice comfy stretchy Undercover Wear Black pants. So I wear a pair almost every day, but as for tops, well the top situation is really beginning to shit me off.. Alot of my old tops, pre surgery tops, fit me very loosely and tend to make me look like I am still 16kg heavier than what I am now.. Now if you're like me, you want to emphasise where it is that you have shrunk.. LOL... So back to the story, ... each morning, I will get out the shower, put my underwear and black pants on and try on top after top on, only to rip it off and go back to the first one I tried on... Still not feeling real impressed. However, this morning after finding a box of my old clothes, alot of the ones that you keep in the hope of it fitting you one day... Well in that box was a nice melon coloured top that never used to even come close to getting it down over my arms, let alone over my hips and body.. BUT with a little hesitation I held it up to my body, checking to see how long it would be before I could squeeze it on, when a realization hit me... It seems to fit across me quite well, why not try it on.. And with that, a new member of my wardrobe was born... Yeehaaa... It's even better because I didnt have to go out and buy it, it was mine all along.

Doncha love that! New clothes and you haven't spent a cent! Thats awesome girl! I have "parcels" of clothes stashed around the house from size 10 - to my current size 18 - 20. I have only worn the same (versatile fit) clothes everyday since losing nearly 9 kilos so tomorrow I might try on my old jeans and see how I go. Its one of those non food related joys that we should indulge in daily!

That is happening to me too! Fantastic feeling:) I had a shelf dedicated to clothes that were too small but too good to give away or throw out....they are starting to fit again!! Good work:)

YEAH!!!! Doesn't it feel great!

I was chatting to Mum this morning and she asked how you were going. I told her how much you've lost and she was very impressed!

Keep up the great work!
