A Strange Day

I got up this morning and decided i would try on a pair of trousers that have been hung in my wardrobe gathering moth balls since i bought them (optimistcally) about 6 months ago. They are size 22 and wouldnt even go on. Annnnyway - they are now on!! I can fasten the zip and the button.....and then i cant move or breathe! But i am soooo chuffed they are on. I cant wait to wear them for work and wiggle my bum at everyone!!

This cheered me up after measuring myself the other night. This was after watching a programme about a pregnant lady whos bump measured 51inches, a couple of days before her due date. She gave birth to a 11lb 3oz baby!!!!! I thought she looked really big - then measured myself and discovered my "bump (he he)" is 54 inches and no baby to excuse it. I was devastated! But, in "glad game" mode, i'm glad i measured myself as i am now more determined than ever to lose weight!!

So i have been buzzing all day after my trouser try on. Then this evening i found out a close friend of my mums has died, aged 51. I feel strange, i suppose we all do when someone we know dies, even more so when they are young. Why do we all spend so much time worrying and stressing when we might not be here tomorrow. From now on my life is going to be for LIVING! i want to enjoy myself!

Anyway, enough of my ramble for one night! I just want to say thank you to everyone who is now following this, and especially to those who have taken the time to comment. If i help even one person it'll be good enough for me! Good luck all, i'll be back on thursday, post weigh in!!


  1. I'm so happy for you that the trousers fit! What a great encouragement! Sorry about your mum's friend. You're absolutely right, we should enjoy life more and stop sweating the small stuff :)

  2. You're post made me laugh!!! I can so relate to the trousers trying on. Keep up the good work!
