Anyway, I decided to join D in the pub instead so went looking for an outfit and discovered that, not only can I fit into my brown tweedy asymmetric skirt, but it's actually flatteringly loose! I was totally overdressed for the pub but I didn't care. It's such a blast getting back into old clothes and throwing, selling or giving away fat clothes! I feel like I'm really turning a corner now and am hopeful for a good result at the weigh-in tomorrow. Even the lads in the pub were commenting on my looking slimmer so that was nice. Thing is, now I don't care nearly as much about casual compliments as I used to as I have much more interest in what I think about myself. Another healthy change I think.
I have so much more energy than I had a few weeks ago. The jogging, swimming, longer walks, jobs at home, ebay, even this blog. I'm watching loads less telly and feel like a different woman. Now when I veg out for a while, it's because I want to not because I can't be bothered to do anything else.
Also, I'm so glad I'm sorting out the weight now as the papers are all full of how British women are the most obese in Europe. Pre-diet that would have really depressed me - all this fat bashing stuff in the newspapers used to make me feel really inadequate. Now I just think - not for long!!
