More big clothes

Yesterday I was thinking that I need to check my jeans to see which ones I will be able to take to Taiwan – well the size 10’s are a little big but will probably do. The two pairs of size 12’s just fall off after I had put them on and took my hands away. Sooooo it is back to shopping again this weekend. I told Al I was probably going to have to buy some more jeans as I can’t see myself getting away with one pair of pants for 2 weeks – no problem he said. I have to say he must be one of the few men I know who encourages his wife to go clothes shopping – such a honey ! When we were at Target last weekend I saw a “Buy 1 pair get the 2nd pair for 50% off sale” so will go back there on Saturday to see if it is still on – then I will look at buying two pairs otherwise will probably just get one pair.
This is some advice for people getting close to goal - don't buy clothes until you are at goal !!!!! While 3-4 kilos may not make that much difference to your clothes now, when you are that close to goal and lose 3-4 kilos - your clothes begin to be and look too big and are not nearly as slimming as clothes that fit properly. Rather wait a while until you are at goal and then go on your spending spree. I think this will also help to keep you on track after you have got to goal because if you do put on a little bit of weight, you can feel it straight away and can do some damage control before it gets out of hand.
All I can say is thank goodness he has this job in Taiwan because there is no way we could have afforded to buy me all this clothing if he wasn’t working there !!
I bought the CSIRO cookbook on the weekend and was going to try one of their recipes tonight but ran out of time last night to get organized so it will be curry chicken stir fry from Lennard’s with veggies instead.
Well the day has certainly got away from me and it is now home time and I still haven’t had a chance to post this in blogger – so am going to get it on and then be off to the shops.
Take care everyone and have a great week !

Good advice Linda, I will take it under my wing for when I get closer (a lot closer) to goal!

Great advice Linda - thanks. I have tried to avoid buying too many clothes along the way. I have had to buy some out of pure decency but have to fight the urge to shop since so much fits me now LOL.

WOW to the size 10's being too big. You have done such an amazing job with losing 20kgs. And I think you can relax the fear a little - because you are not going to put it back on.

Have a great day Linda and hope you get a chance to try that recipe soon :)

My man likes me shopping too :-) It's great isn't it! It's so true about having to buy new clothes again too. A couple of kilos really DOES make a difference but I'm not complaining. I love shopping LOL. Let us know how you like the CSIRO book. I want to buy it but not sure. Cheers babe.
