Bag of Fruit

Hello again! I finally have internet access at home so here’s hoping you’ll see more regular updates.

I haven’t jumped on the scale for a few weeks now. I’ve been weighing at the gym and lately I’ve been going later in the evening after dinner, so there’s no way I’m jumping on the scale while I’ve got a belly full of food. And I must say I’m enjoying not getting on the scale. I’ve just been keeping to the basic philosophy of being healthy for the vast majority of the time, and it seems to be working.

Today I put on a suit that I bought before I left Australia. When I bought it about 3 1/2 months ago, I couldn’t zip up the pants. Well that’s a slight understatment – the two halves of zipper were sprawled out on either side of my bulging tummy, at the time I thought they would never meet again. I could get the jacket up my arms, but the buttons couldn’t meet the button holes over my blubbery boobs and belly. But I bought the suit anyway, because I wanted a challenge!

And surprise surprise, today I put the suit on and the pants fit, woo! And the jacket did up! Best of all, the suit is a size 18. And that’s not a Fat Section size 18, it’s a size 18 from Jacquie E, a ‘normal size’ clothing store in Australia. Woohoo 🙂

So it’s all going okay. More soon, I promise. Hope you’re all well!
