While I was down south my sister and I searched through the sales for bargains. Well, you don't have much choice when you're the Large sizes so had no luck but today I went to a local shop and bought 3 outfits. They fit but are a little too fitting so I have to lose weight to look better in them!
I also bought a 3/4 length sleeve black top to wear under this one on cooler days (and because I hate showing off my elbows). I need some slimmer pants (but not leggings!!.... YET)
This skirt fits perfect but it's elastic waist so I can take it in. The top fits okay but it's short sleeves and so I have the elbow problem. So Lose them!
Today, wasn't great but I'm off to get my groceries tonight and will look for the lower calorie items.. no chocolate, no sugar and I'm going to try less gluten. Menopause can't be the blame for Everything!!!
Thanks for your comments and emails, girls. It's really hard yakka losing weight especially when you're on your own. But I have arranged to go for a walk on Saturday with a colleague who is very committed to getting fit and goes to the gym every day!!?? Little steps first..
PS I do have another incentive too. A friend is coming home to NZ again for 5 weeks in March... just a friend but single, ten years younger and generous and wants to take me out again! We had a really great time dining and chatting last year when he was home. That's all it was.. but maybe that's what makes it more fun!
