For the past 7 years I have measured by size by way of a size 14 pair of Dorothy Perkins jeans. When I could wear them out and about I was "just right"; when they were tight I needed to "watch out"; when the muffin top took over it was "oh gawd"! and when I couldn't zip them up it was "emergency time".
Well now the JEANS are TOO BIG!!!!!!!!!! Oh joy!!
But what do I use as a gauge now?
Before, when I could wear the jeans I felt "slim enough" but now being even littler I don't feel slim enough.
I have worked out that the difference is that now I know what I weigh!
When I didn't know what I weighed (hadn't been on a scales for about 2 years before LL because I found that my mood for any given day would be dictated by whether I weighed heavier or lighter than the day before!) I went by how my clothes fitted and how I looked in the mirror.
Now that I know what the scales says it's a different matter.
But still "THE JEANS ARE TOO BIG" :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: I'm sure I will process the 'other stuff' over time.
