Yeah, well ....

I finally wore my new Millers Comfort Pants, Size 12 (elastic waist) to work this week

Up until now I have been wearing the Size 16 well, they weren't falling down (all that much) and I figured it didn't really matter so why not?

But now that I am wearing the Size 12 I realise it does matter. For starters, I feel a lot slimmer in Size 12 than I do in baggy Size 16

However, my tops are also Size 16 and I am not, so these are hanging off and looking, simply, frightful.

I never was one for op-shops or wearing second hand clothes. It is End of Season so I should be able to get a half dozen, new, Size 10-12 tops for work (and for play) from Millers / Rivers for $10 or $15 each.

The fear of putting the weight back on will be at the back of my mind for some time, maybe even for years

But in the meantime I cannot walk around like Little Orphan Annie wearing my own hand-me-down clothes, worn by a previous version of myself.

That is really, just too sad.

It will soon be time for short sleeves and brighter colours but in the meantime I feel a strong urge to wear winter and spring clothes that actually fit me.

Lotsa love

Lost 28 kilos in 2006, 15 kilos twice since then and 25 kilos in 2017. This is an On Program+Refeed January 2019 lose 10kg refresher - Goal Weight and Size 10, is just a few week's waltz along the beach!

I have cleaned out my wardrobe twice now with a major cull.
I made the decision along the way to not wear anything that doesn't fit, it helps motivate me to keep going and I feel so much better so why shouldn't I look better. Yes its expensive replacing your clothes every few weeks but worse problems have happened at sea And I also think this will help me keep the weight off in the long run because I will have nothing to wear and I think I will be sad to have to buy larger sized clothes.
I started this journey 12 weeks ago in a size 18-20 and I am now comfortable in a 14 but can fit 12's if I breathe in, no idea what size I will be at goal weight, I still have just over 16 kgs to go but I am just going to keep on buying clothes as I work my way through the sizes, its my gift to me and my bod.

Finished refeed @ 25 weeks - lost 37 kg - 100 grams below goal.
