    I have noticed a few things that have been a disadvantage since I have lost weight so thought we could have a bit of fun disscussing them :character00148:

    Ok my trousers are to loose the waist band is rubbing and annoing me. :doh:

    I have had to buy new knickers as the old ones kept falling down:whoopass:

    I put on a bra this morning and my boobs were lost in it.:lost:

    I dont have a winter coat that fits and refuse to buy a new one as I am only half way through my first 100 days. So I am always cold:gen125:

    I have more energy so walking the dogs more. The poor things dont have any more energy and are always tired:chores016:

    My kids are complaining there is no nice food in the house. If I am not eating it neither are they:eat:

    Im sure there are more but all I can think of at the moment. O yes you have to find a smilie to fit :whistle:

    When I got down to 12st ish, I noticed that when walking through a busy market / town centre, I'd be buffeted round like a pinball! I'm only a short wee thing and it was obviously very easy for people to barge me out of the way.

    When I was 22st, if someone barged into me, they'd have ended up with a bruised shoulder! ;)

    I am constantly cold - no insulation
    I am dead mardy now, slightest knock and I moan annd I am covered in bruises
    I am spending a fortune on new clothes, especially long sleeved woolies and jeans
    I truly believe I am spending more time with my appearance, like looking in the mirror a bit longer and thinking is that really me?
    Hubby said no pillows for his head - Boobies look more like my spaniels ears than his does.
    Daughter said nowt to cuddle when she puts her arms around me and she can now clasp her arms

    LOL, wonderful thread ladies,
    all I can add to those is, I'm spending a fortune on toilet rolls, all those extra trips to the loo, and I seem to be walking on the hems of all my trousers and jeans, they used to stay up on my belly, but not anymore.
    Ah! just thought of another one, buying vast quantities of wrinkle cream/moisturiser/ need shares in Superdrug

    Wouldn't have it anyother way

    Hee hee lovely thread! I am also constantly cold so much so that i have to wear layers and take gloves, wolly hat and scraf with me just in case and I am seriously worried about winter!! Also no one seems to understand how frustrating it is to buy some clothes only to have them be too big in a few weeks time! Constantly going to the loo and remembering to drink water! hee hee the life of a Lighter lifer eh! But would not have it any other way!!!

    Also getting paranoid,

    about where is the nearest Ladies Toilet, Service station?
    and am I carrying enough bottles of water for the trip?, even if I am only going to the shops.

    lol - Great thread,
    Cold like everyone else and refusing to buy a new coat due to the fact I am still shrinking. Wearing out the clothes I have, although I still need to buy belts cos the jeans can be taken off now without undoing them! Cool.:giggle:
    Going to a formal dinner dance tonight and having to buy my dress two days ago so that I knew it would fit. But it is miles smaller than the one that I wore last year!! Yee Haa:party0048:
    Hubby commenting about everything I wear now, and drooling all over the floor. But I love it really!
    Saggy bits, boy, do I need to go to the gym! Or a miracle cure - anyone? lol :D
    The toilet breaks, gosh, I thought it would get easier, as if!! Oh well, I pretty much know where they all are in the surrounding area.:sign0131:

    Ooooh good thread! Most of mine have been done.

    1. Always cold.
    2. Bruise easily.
    3. Feel like I have to apologise for being slim, as most people I work with are decidedly quite chunky.
    4. I have indeed acquired the nickname 'slim' at work (people used to just shorten my name to AM, but now I am 'slim')
    5. Having always been used to growing out of clothes (ie going from a 14 to a 16) growing out of some lovely size 12's as they are too big, is somewhat rather sad (sniff)
