      Yes I do have a huge wardrobe of clothes and I would be very honest and say around 65% I can't wear because of my ever expanding waist band – I have some great casual trousers which were bought with great care as I knew they would be useful ....... can I fit in them NO.
      So doing this diet was a culmination of me in frustration buying yet another black dress in M&S which is just awful but fitted the bill for a meeting and seeing myself in the mirror in the fitting room as I tried it on – I was bent over and could see my huge tummy and big backside and my enormous bust ............. who is going to fix that no one but me.
      So to stop this madness I'm no longer buying clothes / shoes/ bags / scarves I have to wear this black shift dress until I shift some weight.
      So joy of joys I can now fit in to two pairs of trousers – not very comfortable but enough to make me desperately want to shift more weight.
      My biggest problem and asset is my bust ...... I hate everything gapes and I'm forever tugging the blouse down to pull the button placket inline so I'm not busting out all over.
      So I'm now wearing some lovely camel cords which just need me to lose around three more pounds and will look great and I need to lose around at least 2 inches of my bust and hey another 35% of my wardrobe is wearable.
      So if I can do this so can you ...........

        • I think the real downfall for women was when elastic was introduced into the wardrobe of women’s via the pants. OH we just kept eating...and eating..and the pants kept expanding and expanding.....and then...right before our very eyes...we became Two Ton Anna.....estatic  

          That’s my take on the situation.....

        • I couldn't agree more – people who wear sweat suits / jogger bottoms all day they don't notice the extra pounds rolling on but you do when you're wearing proper clothes and you ease up accordingly.
          My friend was a big wearer of leggings and a big shirt while writing a book at home and she gained two stone which she hadn't noticed !
          Carbs and elastic the curse of the over 40's

          Ain’t that the truth! If I didn’t have to get up and look presentable for work each day I could easily live in my sweats and eat bread all day, and never notice that my mid section has been slowly spreading.  Keep it up Vicki!
