After 2 years I need a belt again :)


this is a bit of an achievement and i want to celebrate :)

A couple of years ago I decided that the belt was not needed as I was big (fat) enough to fill any trousers I had and they were uncomfortable, so I put them all in my wardrobe, they slowly sank and I forgot about them.

But once back from Italy this week (5th week started) I realized the jean's (which I did not use on holiday) were definitely large! I can fit a fist between my body and them!

This is a new feeling. I have never lost weight and size (or at least I cannot remember as the last time I did something for my image I was 13 so I was changing clothes anyway...), this is a first! Indeed, since I stopped running in 2003 I only gained weight (or at the very top lost a couple of kilos, immediately replaced with brand new fat :) even if in 2014 I restarted running. Now, still running, the new eating habits are helping :)

Probably you all know the feeling, but for the first time I can feel my jean's growing around my body: there is empty space between me and them - and it's a nice new feeling. I am going to wait before buying new clothes as there is still a lot of work to be done, but this is great news and I want to celebrate and acknowledge the help (active or passive) already received since I joined this community

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU :) I would have probably lost it without this :)

I am anyway still in the middle of overweight BMI (happily down from obese :) so next goal must be normal weight :)

have a great weekend
