Friday 31 st January 2014....

Well some exciting news!!!!

I have dropped another dress size :)

As you all know I was a size 32.... well bursting out of a 32 and now today I am wearing size 22 jeans!!! OMG size 22!!  So that is a total of 5 sizes dropped!!! eEEEEeeeeeeekkkkk!!!!

I was wearing my size 24 jeans yesterday and thought they felt a little baggy everywhere so I went and bought a size 22.. not for one minute did I think I would get in them!  I guess I am in a little shock!  Happy shock :)

The 2 middle ones of me were taken today ... size 22!! and the 2 either side are size 32!!  

This is such a massive confidence boost for me.... I cannot believe it.  Saying that though Han has gone from size 22 to size 16 so she has dropped 3 sizes :)  Its GREAT news!

The most annoying thing of all is that both of our chests have not reduced. Sure I have lost inches off my arms and top half but not my chest :(  I think I will look like Jordan soon!  Its dreadful...I want more than anything for them to reduce... any tips or ideas out there??? I will carry on and hope they will eventually get smaller.

I have been to the pool today during the lunch hour, its a great time to go and quiet!  Did the marching up and down the pool then sat in the hot tub a little while and steam room just before I got out.  I am really enjoying my sessions.

I have been thinking I do!

And well I think I am accepting my situation more now.  I mean I can see improvement with my knee...sure its a little improvement but its there.  I go to the pool not because I have to but because I want to!  And I think its that way now, I am enjoying making the change and why battle against it?  Go with the flow.. and I am having fun along the way!  I guess realizing I need to be happy too to make the changes in me was hard because how can I be happy when I am so overweight?!  That is the whole point though... I needed to accept the way I am to enable me to move on.  Hope this is making sense?

And yes its great I am now 5 sizes smaller but still I cannot see this in me... seriously, no joke.  I know I am smaller because of the clothes I am now wearing.  But for me, when I look at myself I feel no different.... its all to do with the mind I think.  I am on the right track accepting things, its going to take time to understand myself.  I guess the only reference here I can make is of Dawn French when she lost a lot of weight.  She liked being overweight and missed how she was, her personality and everything about her, she she put the weight back on.  Now I guess this is what I am worried about?  I am a bubbly person, naturally happy I think ... or is this just a front I put up to hid behind because I am overweight?  I guess I will have to go with the flow....

Will post what I have eaten later... just wanted to share my amazing news :)
