Week 35 – 1.5Lbs Lost – And A Clothing Clear Out – 4 Weeks Till Final Dress Fitting

clothing clear outI seem to be on a bit of a roll in recent weeks, this week I lost another 1.5lbs which means I have lost 7.5 lbs in the last 4 weeks, well on my way to the next milestone of 4 1/2 stones.

I know average loss people say is about half a stone every 4 weeks/month but I have struggled a little with that however the last 4 weeks things really seem to be going well, a loss every week is really encouraging, hope it continues :-)

I think lots of BBQ s but eating the right foods, low syn sausages, low syn burgers, chicken, not much bread if any, lots of salad, new potatoes and changing my eating around a bit has really helped plus cutting down a bit on daily fruit intake with my breakfast.

I think in the next 4 weeks I can lose another half stone so this should put me at 4 stone 9.5 lbs lost by the time my final wedding dress fitting day comes around. Considering when I began I wanted to lose 6 stones total I am a huge way towards that but still a fair bit of hard work to do yet :-) depending on if I think I can lose more than 6 stone I will move my target at a later date.

This weekend I decided to clear out my wardrobes of all my old/big clothes. I haven’t bought too much new stuff but I am certainly going to have to soon :-) it was fun and very inspiring trying on all my old shorts from last years holiday and looking like a clown in most of them, jeans which now literally fall off completely, t shirts which make me look like a sack of spuds now haha, hoodies and jumpers which just bury me now too. It is crazy the amount of clothes I put into the “NEVER AGAIN” pile. I must admit it made me a little sad since there where so many labelled t shirts and loads of other labelled stuff I like my labels if I am honest…………….BUT…………now I can go and buy new ones most of which will be 3-4 sizes smaller :-)

In 5 weeks we jet off the Cyprus to get married so first things first…..a shopping trip this Saturday to buy new shorts, t shirts, vest tops, maxi dresses, underwear and swimwear – basically I need everything new, not so good for the bank account but will be fun trying on new clothes and having so much more choice then I have ever had. I have waited as long as I dare to get new gear I can’t wait any longer now :-) I plan to buy as cheap as I can not because I am a tight @it but because when I reach target I will have to replace it all with more new stuff hopefully then a size 10 :-) I have managed to salvage 2 or 3 vest tops which still fit ok and don’t look stupid and a few pairs of shorts which were smaller than most of what I had which I think I can get away with for now but yeay SHOPPING TRIP :-)

Instead of thinking about plus size shops and places where you can only get bigger sizes and walking out of a shop because they don’t do my size…….. I am thinking Next, H&M, SuperDry and shops which most people shop in all the time. I think I am actually going to enjoy clothes shopping for the very first time :-)
