I'm very pleased that I lost another 300gms this week. So for the month of January, a total of 2.3kg. I'm quite happy about that!
I don't notice any difference in my clothes and how they fit as yet - but that will come.
I bought 2 black ponti skirts the other week from Target. One at mid calf length and one at knee length - they look good on. I did buy a pair of high control top knickers to suck everything in and smooth out some lumpy bits - unfortunately, they were a size too small. It's not pretty getting them on and then I discover, the knickers are actually a swimsuit bottom!!! I really should start wearing my glasses when I go shopping. Oh well, not too worry, I just need a tankini style top and I'm all set for the pool.
Ultimately, I'm aiming for a Size 18 in pattern sizing - which I last wore about 17 years ago - gulp! I suppose it took 17 years to gain, it's going to take a little time to lose (but, hopefully, not 17 years!!)
I did lose 18kg about 18 years ago in 16 weeks - but that was on a very restricted diet. My son Hadden, was diagnosed with severe food allergies as a baby and as I was breastfeeding him, I had to avoid everything he was allergic to. Mind you, he was allergic to just about everything. Thankfully, he's outgrown a lot of the allergies, but he still has quite a few to contend with.
Needless to say, once I stopped being so careful about what I could and couldn't eat, I got complacent (and also another pregnancy) the weight crept back and stayed.
