Goodbye 'BIG' girl

It has been a BIG week this week. I will not bore you with all the details of how AWESOME our hockey team is. And how AMAZING it felt to win a grand final. And how the party afterwards was such a great night. I think you get the idea. And it's not that I can't remember it. I remember most of the night. It's safe to say the drinking ban has been lifted!!

I called in the shops on Sunday to grab a couple of clothes. I needed some new running pants and a couple of tops. I grabbed size 14's thinking they may be a little tight but I would 'shrink' into them. I didn't have time to try them on so when I got back to my sisters I was very surprised to find they fit quite well. I probably could have even gone with a size 12 top. 

I am starting to get used to my body being different but I still see myself as the 'big' girl in the room. I feel like if I go into shops and tell the shop assistant I am size 14 they will look at me as if to say 'yeah right'. But then I catch a glimpse of my reflection and realise I am not the 'big' girl I used to be. And I have worked damn hard to not be that girl anymore.

It does take a while to get used to it though. I still surprise myself when I try on new clothes or see the size tag when I am hanging the washing out. I have seen some photo's from the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw myself. Don't get me wrong I still have a long way to go but sometimes it's nice to reflect on how far I have come. 

I am off to an Intimo party today to buy some new underwear. I am in much need of new well fitted bras. As most women will agree when you lose weight the first place you lose it from is the last place you want to lose it from. Your boobies!!!! Much to my hubbies horror. 

Weekly Weigh In Results
Weekly Loss 700grams

6.9kg until my body scan.

I will be cracking my bottle of Moet this weekend at our hockey wind up. I wanted to wait until I could relax and enjoy it.

I have to say the scales haven't been moving a lot lately but I am definitely noticing a change in my shape and clothes.

  1. Fantastic! Yes it takes a while for the head to catch up to the body. I still reach for the back of the clothes racks for the big sizes, it's only when I try things on do I realise hey, this is too big. Even then I stand there in a change room looking at the mirror and shaking my head.

    Hope you have a great time buying out the underwear at the Intimo Party! Go you. Watch out hubby! ;-)
