It’s time…

19 November , 2010

It’s time for me to buy some new clothes. It’s not even a matter of wanting to buy new clothes any more – I NEED new clothes. I haven’t really kept you guys up to date as much as I intended with the whole weight loss thing, but I’ve dropped 26kg since I’ve had Nicola (still could easily do with another 10-15 to go thought). I’m below my pre-pregnancy weight now, but let me tell you I do NOT have my pre-pregnancy shape or anything close to it – hahahaha!

Anyway, as is customary for me I always lose first and most on my legs and behind and the flab that hangs around is usually either in my middle or breast area. When I pick up it’s the exact opposite, so I will eventually look like a toffee apple on a stick? Sparrow asked me last week why I’m wearing MC Hammer’s pants…they’re that baggy now. Many I have to either wear with a belt or roll over at the top to keep them from falling off me completely.
It’s time.

And if I didn’t know it already yesterday would have confirmed it for me. I went to go pick Nicola up from school and on my way out ran into another mommy from the baby class that wanted to chit-chat. (On a side note: it kills me that I am now dispensing mommy advice like an old pro on command, just thought I’d mention that too). As I was standing talking to her about the best way to have a bath when there’s no one else around to hold the baby I suddenly realised that I was losing my bloody pants! The belt must have loosened when I bent down to pick Nicola up. Eeep! I had no hand to yank the blasted thing up with cause I had Nicola in one hand and the bag in the other. Dammit! I widened my stance, I hope without looking like a weirdo, and kept a straight face. When she left I had to walk the playground gauntlet too, still with no hands, and hope I make it to my car without flashing my kid’s entire school and thus scarring her for life! I sort of hung on to the one side of it with the bag hand but the other side was slipping badly and I felt a distinct breeze on bits of me where a breeze should not have been able to reach.

We made it to the car in record speed and pants almost not in tact…but it was way too close for comfort.

I think I know how I’m going to be spending my Saturday this weekend.

  5. Oh that is so funny, good going girl well done! I noticed it the other day and should have commented sorry man. Wow, what an achievement 🙂

  6. Yip, you definitely need new clothes! Congrats on the weightloss!!!

  7. Thanks guys…I’m quite happy about it but I can’t really take the credit, since I didn’t actually *do* anything to help it along. All credit goes to Nicola, for acting up whenever I aim something at my mouth. 😉

    Ps! Don’t believe, before and after shots? I think I might be able to do that somehow. Gimme a few days, I’ll whip something together.

  8. Love it!

  9. Jax, 😀 me too! I managed to buy the non-MC-Hammer-pants last weekend and wore them all week. It was nice, I got compliments on my appearance EVERY SINGLE DAY. I must have looked like a bag lady before, but I’m choosing not to think about that too much. 😉

  10. LOL, huge congratulations! Thats so awesome!

Say something...come on! You know you want to?
