So at Christmas I bought some new jeans from Evans - a whopping 32 in the pear style. Ok they were a little loose on the waist but otherwise fitted well enough (over my large butt).
I started cutting down and walking just after Christmas but it took me until the middle of February to brave the scales. I could tell I had lost a bit by then but still have no idea how much.
Now I am officially over the 2 stone mark and my jeans and trousers are starting to look a bit ridiculous with loads of darts stitched in, so I decided to bite the bullet and buy some new jeans.
I thought I'd go a bit smaller (a 26 should be ok for now) to give myself something to aim for and hopefully last a couple of months so I went for a 24 in the pear again. They arrived today plus a pair of trousers. And to my delight they actually fit! I can even sit down! Ok so the legs look a bit like overstuffed sausages, so I think about 7 - 14lb needs to come off before they look ok but I am so pleased. The work trousers fit too and I can wear them straightaway.
I am now wondering how much I have actually lost but I guess now I will never know.
As soon as the new jeans are comfortable the old one are going to charity.
