I'm back - I think.

Hey y'all.

I just realised that it has been an absolute age since I last blogged.  I have not been feeling particularly good about myself and I guess this has made it more difficult to get writing on here.  My biggest issue (pardon the pun) is that I have put on quite a lot of weight and I just don't feel happy with it.  Weight changes are always an issue but when your clothes are mainly vintage and therefore difficult to replace and made of fabrics with no stretch, it seems to hit harder. I can't do anything up!

As such I have decided to do something about it and have spent the last week following Weight Watchers.  Incredibly I have lost 7lbs in a week.  This seems like a lot but I have really changed my diet so I'm not surprised.  I expect it will slow down from here but it definitely has given me a boost.

I'm also starting the "30 Day Shred" workout DVD today after hearing great things about it.  I probably won't be able to move tomorrow (I'm aching from doing just half the workout as a taster two days ago).

Here is hoping I survive!

I have plenty of film reviews coming up for you and a review of several brands of seamed tights for those lazy days where you just can't face a girdle.

In the meantime please cast your eyes over my new Swirl with watermelon pockets.  This was too tight a week ago but just about fits me now!  Hurrah for diets and sunny days.

  4. You look wonderful...!

    And I'm really looking forward to your review of the seamed tights. My personal history with tights is one of regrets—I really find them irritating. So, up to now my alternative to wearing a girdle has been to either wear pants or occasionally go barelegged.

  12. Great dress and great luck with Weight Watchers. I lost about 20 pounds on it, which I promptly put right back on, but it did work really well for awhile. I just reached a plateau and got discouraged, so went back to my cocktails. So keep it up!

  13. What a lovely dress! And don't fret about your weight - your dedicated will get it off in no time. The vintage era was all about curvy women, after all!

    You look beautiful, honey.

  14. I follow and don't really comment, but I've missed you and I totally understand the struggle. I've been there, and I'm creeping back there myself. Excellent to start with WW - it's a big help. Hang in there! :) (And I admit I love how you use "y'all" and even spell it right!) :)

  16. I'm sorry you're feeling down, I completely sympathise and this whole Easter thing really doesn't do anything to help! yet, I must say, I think you are absolutely stunning, I follow your blog day after day and I'm never disappointed by what I see because I find you stunning. I commend your effort to get fit, I really think I need a kick in the butt to join you, because whatever your weight, it can never hurt to get some exercise I suppose, so, I'd love to hear your progress, it'll inspire me! x

  24. Congrats on your weightloss. I have joined this too but am struggling a little bit over the past two days. Will be easier when work begins again on Tues. That's one plus about having to go to work I guess. Too busy to think about eating...!
