Lose Weight, Save Money, blah blah blah

I'm a bit of a fatty by my standards, which means there are clothes in my wardrobe that either don't fit, or do fit but only just. So I've moved them into the wardrobe in the spare room for the time being. I can't wait to wear them again, well, I say again but there are two things in there still with tags, I'll have to wear them first. 


It all looks very sad. 


Five skirts, the sequinned one is as yet unworn, I bought it from a charity shop for £1.99 a couple of weeks ago, the shop doesn't have a dressing room so I just bought it in the spirit of optimism. The other four, I used to wear all the time, but I'm too bulbous at the moment. 


I love this dress, it's usually so comfy, but at the moment it's not a good look on me. I hope to be looking great in it again very soon. 


Again, these technically fit in that I can put them on my body without having to be rescued by someone with some sharp scissors, but to go out and about in them, I don't think so. The swirly one hasn't been worn since I tried it on in the shop. 

So that's that, my actual wardrobe has many tops but not much to contain my expanding bottom, I'll do a bit of jumping around and say no to crisps and see where that leaves me.

  1. Snap@because I’ve been so poorly and the antibiotics have upset my stomach, I have been eating lots of carby things. Haven’t been out since 19th December except to the docs so my walking has been zero! Sorry for lack of comments but when the ipad updated it shut me out of Google again. Fixed now, so just to wish you all you wish yourselves in 2018. Slainte! Catriona

  2. I LOVE your skirts! Such eye catching patterns. I don't wear skirts or dresses (can't even remember the last time I wore a dress), my shape just doesn't seem to suit them (short and VERY curvaceous with huge boobs). Judging by the look of the clothes (small!), I shouldn't think you have too much to worry about....but of course that's my opinion, we all have bits of ourselves that we don't like or don't think look good. Hope the jumping around/no crisps works!

    1. Thank you, I do like pattern. I wear skirts and dresses all the time because of y shape, I have trouser trouble - they either fit at the waist but leave me with the "sausage leg" look, or they look better on the leg but have "clown pants" waist!

  3. It's a sad fact that the weight only goes on in the wrong places and when it goes it still chooses the wrong place.

  4. Slowly but surely items that no longer fit my expanding body are being bundled up and sent to the Salvation Army. I need to cut back on the crisps as well.

    God bless.

  6. I'm in a similar predicament myself. I'm hoping a bit of exercise now I've finally got rid of my cold will help to put a stop to my expansion. Happy New Year. X

    1. I love it, but it was a real impulse purchase The grey areas are actually silver glitter - I never go to places where I'd need a dress like this, but maybe I'll just wear it anyway!

    1. Thanks, it's surprising how nice they seem now I'm not just thinking of them as things I can't wear!

  9. I do know the feeling, an extended holiday and then Christmas has left its mark. A determined effort is needed here too. Best wishes for 2018.

    1. I don't even have Christmas as an excuse! It's an extended period of "vegan joy" i.e trying all the new vegan foods that are appearing all the time. Back to nice wholefoods and cooking at home now.

      Happy new year and best wishes to you.
