Today I took a train to Birmingham to meet up with a slimming buddy of mine, Kes, whom I have met online through a slimming club forum. She and I get along really well and between us have lost lots of weight (although my journey continues up until my 40th in Feb). I haven't been girly clothes shopping for YEARS without hubby in tow or Ellie being bored to tears with my faffing through the racks.
She is LOVELY and has lost almost 6 stones in weight. She inspires me!
I bought a dress three times smaller than what I would have bought in August but believe me, I still have two more dress sizes to get through before I get to my ideal size. I bought this for my freind Zoe's party next week (Hi Zoe!) and I couldnt be happier with it. Although the bow on the collar has GOT to GO ...Im too old for bows.
Even earrings to match - check me out, miss co-ordination!
Maybe these shoes (if I can get over the fear of crippling myself in them)
The plan I am following isnt exactly sunshine and lollipops and at times I think "Jeez, eat something with a bit of friggin flavour will you?" but I persevere for the sake of my health more than being slimmer. The reason being was that I had horrendous wheezing fits and a pain in my sternum for the longest time and now its just not there anymore. My skin looks so much better and Im wearing clothes from yesteryear that don't make me feel like the bag lady anymore.
Onwards and downwards, I say.
