Weight loss: Week 40

weight loss week 40It has been two weeks since my last weight loss post due to travel, and in those two weeks I have…maintained! How very frustrating! However, being back home with full length & other large mirrors I can see how much weight I have lost so far.

Also, I’ve had a bit of a tidy since I got back and discovered some clothes that had been put away in a box under my bed for some unknown reason. Anyway, I happened to try on the size 44 (UK 16) jeans that were in there even though I was sure they wouldn’t fit. I’ve been wearing size 50-52 trousers for a year or more now. But, despite being sure they’d get stuck at my calves, they didn’t. Nor did they get stuck at my thighs. Or even over my bum. In fact…they fit! I am wearing them as I type this! I am over the moon!

I know that clothes sizing is questionable and they may well be a large 44, but they are far from being a 50, so go me! I am so pleased and it’s really encouraging me to keep up my weight loss and made me realise that I can do it, because I have done, and I am doing it.

I found that walking around today I had a spring in my step too, I feel better in myself and my looks. I feel like I don’t look vile anymore, and I know that sounds like I’m fat-bashing, and I’m really not. There are many beautiful, big people, but I am not one of them. I felt and looked awful: I saw a photo of myself from two years ago yesterday and I was horrified and disgusted.

I’m far from being slim now, and I’ll never fit the current attractive stereotype, I have curves and that’s fine, but I want my shape to visible, which it is becoming now and I’m really proud of how I’m doing!

Hooray for a positive weight loss post for a change!

    Clothes that fit which didn’t before is my favorite way to see weight loss results. Yay you!

    Awww hun, that is fantastic! It is always exciting to try clothes on thinking they won’t fit and they slide on smoothly – you rock them lady! You are sounding so positive at the moment which is fabulous – the break has done you good! Hope you are having a fantastic week and hope you can join in with #WeightLossWednesday this week! Sim xx

    That’s fantastic – and it means SO much more than the numbers on the scales. Maintaining after travelling sounds like a victory to me anyway so another high five for that 🙂

    Well done hun, that’s brilliant! I was gonna say some of your clothes look a bit baggy on you now. How fab to go down a few dress sizes! I’ve been squeezing myself into clothes that were too small for so long it takes me ages to drop a dress size because they go from being too tight to just fitting before they get anywhere near loose! Good luck this week x
