Major boost

If you're like me then you will have a wardrobe of clothes that are a wee bit too small. This morning I went into my drawer and there was a pair of my old jeans. I looked at the label and they were a 56" waist. When I changed my approach to eating a few weeks ago my work trousers were a 62" waist. The belt dug into my stomach and side when I sat down and caused a lot of pain. I looked at the jeans this morning and thought 'no chance'. What the heck, I'll try them on and see. Normally with smaller trousers I pull them on then just before the hips I know that they're going no further. If they do get to the waist then I need to breathe in to get them fastened. Well this morning there wasn't a struggle. On they went, fastened without a problem and are loose enough that I still need to wear a belt. (Which I've just had to add another notch too)

So I'm off for a nice long walk into town,. Positive start to the day

  • Excellent result - well done 😊

  • Fantastic! Well done, you🤗

  • What a billiant start to the day - well done!

    I have myself got a whole wardrobe of very nice (and hardly worn) clothes which are just that bit too tight, while I am wearing the same old 4 or 5 outfits that do fit, but are worn out from wear, and I can't really like them because they are my "fat" clothes.

    So I am going to go and look through my wardrobe every time I feel tempted to eat something extra to my plan, in the hope that seeing all my clothes and thinking about how close I am to fitting into them will keep me focused. Fingers crossed!
