Second week of the ‘cutting back’ and I have lost 2.8 lbs, a lot less than last week’s 5.2 lb loss but it does mean I have lost my first half a stone! Break out the cakes, oh hang on a minute maybe we should stick to rice cakes 🙄.
My partner had brought me a fitted t-shirt for when I’d reach my first half stone loss. Unfortunately with 3 stone still to go, fitted t-shirts are not made for people of my size🙁. I tried it on and immediately felt disappointed, despite the good results this week. It made me realise how much I still had left to go. Half a stone is just a small dent in a very large target.
However, there is no point in wallowing – I didn’t gain all this weight in a few weeks so I’m not going to lose it in a few weeks either 🙂
I appreciate his gesture and I know he was doing a really nice thing, however I gave the t-shirt back to him, even though he suggested I keep it for the future. I know I will one day be able to wear a designer fitted t-shirt but I have enough clothes in my wardrobe already for when I lose the weight. To be honest I’ve had clothes in that wardrobe for years that I have bought and kept thinking they’ll fit one day. I’m pretty sure some of them are out of fashion now!
One thing that bugs me about designer shops, why do none of them cater for the more voluptuous figure? It’s very rare that you can get a nice branded top for a female, whereas for blokes they’re readily available? I don’t wear designer clothes but now and again it would be nice to go into a ‘posh’ shop and find something that fitted.
I think I’ll set my next treat for when I lose a stone, not sure what it’ll be yet but maybe something that’ll actually make me feel good – spa, manicure or a non-fitted top!
For now, the sun is shining and it’s time to soak up some rays and fire up the BBQ for this Bank Holiday. Enjoy your extended weekend folks!
