Back to the shorts story

Hi, ages ago I wrote a post about me in I still really want to wear them on holiday as it'll be hot. I know, I can be very stubborn.

Well, here's where I am now.

Have been going to the gym, concentrating more on getting fitter and less wobbly than food at the moment to be honest.

I just asked my husband for his opinion (always a risk). I put my nice colourful (size 18!) shorts on. "What do you think".

"Ummmmm, they're not good".

"What aren't, my legs?"

"Oh no, your legs are fine, it's the shorts I don't like" !!

Now THAT I can handle! We both had a giggle. Will keep going with the gym, as it's obviously working. I'll get there, it's just taking a different route to the one I had planned.

With maybe a pair of navy shorts thrown in just to tone things down. My colourful shorts are now though officially in the pile for holiday!!

    Sounds like your doing great after hubby's comment, just need differnt shorts! lol. Keep up the great work your doing brilliant.

    Have a lovely Sunday.


  • Thank you! And what's even more weird, I now spend less than what I used to spend on wine...on a personal trainer (torturer) once a fortnight. I did feel guilty until I realised he's cheaper than alcohol lol! And have a good Sunday too Rose.

  • Men!! Lol 😀

    Enjoy your holiday and wear those shorts with pride!

  • What didn't he like about the shorts? Mine doesn't like ones that are too baggy or bright or patterned. He suggested chino ones like his although I prefer linen. I compromised and bought 2 pairs.

  • Too brightly patterned I think! Makes me want to wear them more now haha!

  • I would wear them too! Worth trying different styles as well though to get a range. I bought some narrow denim ones which I thought I would never wear and they look ok (was going to say good but at size 18 I will settle for looking ok in shorts)
