Just lost half my wardrobe - yipee
Friday, February 24, 2012
I Blogged the other day that I have now got into clothing 2 sizes smaller which I kept in the back of the wardrobe. Today I went about trying on everything I haven't worn for the past 5 years, since my weight gain began. Several more pairs of trousers now fit with a couple waiting for me to lose another 7 or so pounds. Got back into the suit I wore at my daughters wedding nearly 8 years ago (see my SP page for photo) also got into suit I bought for grandson's christening 6 years ago. All my shoes fit me again and I got into a slinky blue velvet full length evening dress that I haven't worn for about the same time but kept as my daughter keeps borrowing it for fancy do's. The great thing is that none of my circle of friends here in France have seen me in any of these clothes so I can bring then out as if they are new.
Downside is I also tried on all last years clothes I have had put away waiting for summer and also those I have been wearing recently that I had noticed were getting a bit loose. I have had to throw out 8 pairs of trousers, several skirts and a dress. Not that I am complaining. A swings and roundabouts situation where I win and so does the charity shop.
Happy days and here's to the next 16 lbs loss.
