Having gone down a size in jeans, and now fitting in a size 18 top too (!) I tried some shorts on in Next. What a flipping mistake that was. What tree stumpy legs I have. Felt very deflated. We then went into Sports Direct to get daughter some trainers, and I saw those sporty types leggings. Decided to buy some, I think they look bl**dy awful, but the others say they don't look too bad (diplomacy at its best?). So I've decided to wear them in the house and try and do some fitness videos as I really don't want to be a flubbery mess on holiday. Considering joining the gym, but will be in normal trackies if I do that. I know I'm making progress as I used to be a size 24, but just when I think I'm getting there, I hit a wall. I will get there though.
