Thanks for the kind comments on the last entry. I’m not usually one for talking about my personal life, but I happened to be at the keyboard during a fit of paranoia, so you guys got to read all about it. Ha ha!
I remembered something from my Missing Entry. I wanted to tell you all about a bloody brilliant woman named Julia. She emailled me after my Flying Boobies entry and offered to send me a bunch of sports gear as she works in sports promotion and had some spares. So imagine the excitment at Chez Dietgirl when we received a box from Italy, full of sporty tshirts and bras and the like. What didn’t fit me fit my sister, so we have saved a pile of money thanks to the generosity of a stranger! Thanks so much Julia.
My favourite bit was a purple Nike crop top. It’s not supportive enough for cardio, but it’s perfect for Body Pump. I was so excited to fit into a size L Nike top that I had a tiny cry when I put it on. I am no brand-name freak, but to fit into something that wasn’t a plus size was such a shock and so goddamn exciting after all these years, I couldn’t help getting emotional! There is no way I could ever wear the top as it is intended (ie. on its own) due to my wobbly bits, but I like having this little secret under my t-shirt, it makes me smile as I squat and lunge. I even found some Nike gym pants (size XL) at a discount outlet and you wouldn’t believe how my motivation at the gym has been boosted now that my shape isn’t hidden by tracksuit pants three sizes too big! Woo!
