Finally we come the last day of the Dietgirl 5th Anniversary Spectacular.
When visiting Oz in October, I took the opportunity to dig out my old Fat Jeans. I wasn't going to do this until I got to my goal weight but was curious to see how they were fitting these days! I think they were an Australian size 24 or 26.
Let this be a lesson to you all. It really is true what Trinny and Susannah say – if you don't wear clothes that fit you properly, you'll look bigger than you are! Mwahaha.
(Disclaimers! This was towards the end of our trip, and three weeks of eating my way round Australia had reunited me with a few extra kilos. Goddamn Cadbury Mint Triple Decker Bars. AND my top is a little baggy round the waist AND I am in serious need of a new bra that actually provides some hydraulic assistance. Oh, AND it was a cold day!)
First here is the traditional Check Out How Big My Guts Used To Be pose.
I have no idea what I was thinking here. Probably, "How does one Photoshop out slightly erect nipples?"
Somebody call Slimming magazine! It's the ever popular two-legs-in-one-leg, I'm Half The Woman I Used To Be! pose.
And now for my next trick, I will need my lovely assistant…
Once upon a time, I used to pull this face just trying to get into these jeans on my own!
The lumpy weirdness in the chest area in this next shot is just my top all bunched up after wrestling into the jeans. Even though it looks like my boobs have deflated or something.
My first reaction when I saw this shot was, "Hell, my arse looks huge in those jeans". But then I remembered my whole arse now fits in the space that one cheek used to occupy, so I'll stop whinging.
And now as a special bonus, here are some pictures of two of my favourite things in the world: the Scottish Companion and CHOCOLATE CAKE.
. . .
Well that's it for Anniversary Week! Hope you enjoyed it. I have burned approximately 450 calories from all the typing, and your retinas will have burned even more from reading!
