Baggy Trousers!!! 

No, not the song but my jeans! I have finally had to give up wearing my size 18 jeans as they keep falling down and look ridiculous! 

The 16s are still a little snug (thanks shops for your inconsistent sizing!) but I am so pleased to say goodbye to size 18 forever!!

Here’s a few pics of the offending trousers! 



6 weeks tomorrow I’ll be jetting off to Tenerife for a few days away with the girls, I’m really hoping to get another half-stone off between now and then!!  

Wish me luck!

Cutting the String – little update!


Hello lovely flab-fighters and faithful blog readers!

Just a little update for you all. Unfortunately I am currently out of action on the exercise front. I have pulled something in my hip on my left side and am in pain just walking around, so I have postponed today’s run and am hoping to be able to get to it over the weekend. I was also poorly yesterday. I am missing the exercise a bit which shocks the heck out of me, but I am still trying to tone my upper body a little using my weights.

Cutting the String is still going well and I have been on plan all week. I met friend for coffee this morning and opted for a healthy bag of sweet n salty popcorn (less than 130cal per bag) instead of cake, and I then shared about a third of the bag with my friends adorable 11-month old little boy! We are also meeting friends on Saturday for dinner, but we are going to go to Harvester so we can ensure we stick to plan and eat something relatively healthy – plus I can raid the salad cart too!

I’m really feeling the effects of eating more healthily this week. I am sleeping better, I have more energy and am generally feeling a lot more positive about everything. And the best news of all – my jeans are too big! Back in January I had a pair of Primark high-waisted skinny jeans in a size 18. I could literally just get them on, the top button was far to tight and so I walked around with only 2 of the 3 buttons done up. And now….. well the following pictures can speak for themselves….

Hurrah – size 18 jeans are too big!!!

I now have plenty of space in them and need to keep pulling the waist up. They are baggy on my still ample arse, and at the backs of the thighs – even after washing! Hubby is also fitting in a tracksuit which was much too tight at the start of January!

One of the best feelings when you lose weight is when your clothes are getting too big!

So that’s my quick update. The 5th weigh in will be on Monday morning so keep your eyes peeled!
